After Cristiano Ronaldo, Luiz Suarez, Lionel Messi, another big star leaves Russia in disappointment. This time it is Neymar. Brazil’s dream of a record sixth World Cup ended in tatters as they were knocked out by red hot Belgium 2-1.

Fernandinho’s own goal in the 13th minute and Kevin De Bruyne’s 31st-minute strike meant Belgium led 2-0 at the half-time. Renato Augusto (76th minute) revived Brazil’s hopes but it was too late as Belgium now take on France in a explosive semi- final clash.

This will be the first time in 12 years that World Cup semi- finals will not feature an South American side. As the other quarter- finals line-up reads England vs Sweden and Croatia vs hosts Russia.

For Brazil play- maker Neymar hoping to forget the bitter 2014 World Cup loss at home, Russia marks an end of a dream . Neymar had been criticised for his theatrics on the field and many stars said he should concentrate on his game and not acting cost the team heavily.
