Both Ronaldo and Messi's World Cup hopes were crushed when their teams were eliminated from the 2018 FIFA World Cup in the round of 16 on the same day.

"This was special but I want us to go on", said Southgate, whose own penalty miss saw England lose to Germany in the semi-finals of Euro 96 at Wembley.

Brazil sits as +300 tournament favourites following their 2-0 shutout of Mexico as -200 chalk, while Belgium rides high following their 3-2 victory over Japan on -275 odds.

But it turns out that even while out in Russian Federation, the players are using some of their time off from matches, travelling and training to sit down at their PC setups and get some matches in.

The former Barcelona has been slammed by fans, pundits and fellow professionals and there is no doubt all eyes will be on him during Friday's quarter-final showdown with Belgium.

There have also been news going round that the 31-year-old could announce his retirement from global football.

Park wins Women's PGA; Henderson finishes tied for sixth
Park, Ryu and Hataoka all ended the 72 holes at 10-under 278, though they each took a vastly different route to get there. Though her ball landed inside the hazard line, Park hit the ideal shot from the hazard to make an up-and-down for a par.

The quarter-final clashes take place on Friday and Saturday. And perhaps they are getting Belgium at the ideal time after their exhausting desperation match with Japan.

It's been a brilliant, dramatic tournament so far, and the last-eight looks likely to follow suit.

This was by no means a virtuoso display from Neymar in the ilk of his PSG colleagues. "We still haven't seen the best of him".

Top stat: Brazil have faced fewer shots on target than any other team, with just five efforts testing Alisson.

Brazil have played four games in the tournament and Neymar has been fouled 23 times in four games.

Belgium displayed their fighting spirit and manager Roberto Martinez was able to completely change the game after going down 2-0.
