Who's saying what at the World Cup

World Cup 2018: Is Belgium's golden generation finally about to deliver? Soccer Great Neymar Under Fire for 'Faking Injuries'
Chelsea Rogers | 05 July, 2018, 03:51

In the first 45 minutes against Mexico, Brazil again struggled to get the ball to their best players on a regular basis, due partly to a pragmatic midfield of Casemiro and Paulinho.

What became clear in Brazil's 2-0 victory over Mexico on Monday is that the wild side of the striker's character is going nowhere at this year's World Cup.

The officials felt that no action needed taking against Layun, and Osorio has questioned why the 26-year-old felt the need to react in the way that he did.

Though he was denied an official assist, Neymar individually set up the second goal for substitute Roberto Firmino in the dying stages to seal the game for Brazil.

Belgium were emphatic in the second half, but right before Chadli's goal, Japan actually had a short spell of dominance. "I don't need to say anything, you just need to watch it".

"Play SportsMax Predictor game for a chance to win up to $125k United States dollars!"

Despite the dirty move by Layun, we can not deny that Neymar's reaction was priceless as he immediately thrashed around on the ground while holding his ankle and showing it off to everyone who was nearby how badly he was injured.

TAMEEM FRUCTER: ICE is enacting this unacceptable violence on families, on children, on human beings. The activists said they were represented by the National Lawyers Guild.

Both escaped punishment, but the judgment elsewhere was less forgiving, with Neymar asked after the match if he was a diva trying to draw fouls.

Eric Dier's spot-kick gave England their first-ever win on penalties at a World Cup at the fourth attempt - ending the jinx that has dogged them for so long.

They may not have hit their free-flowing stride going forward yet, but Brazil are gaining momentum and have still conceded just once in Russian Federation. And many wondered whether Japan deserved to be in the round of 16 at all.

While his scoring is so often the focus, Neymar also creates goals for his teammates.

To the great regret of the fan and his well-trained pet, Colombia's World Cup campaign came to an end, after the Latin American squad was eliminated by England in a dramatic shootout series on Tuesday.

Even that goal conceded against Switzerland in their opening game was a controversial one as Miranda was pushed by Steven Zuber but VAR didn't intervene much to the chagrin of the Brazilian football federation, who launched an official complaint to FIFA.
