Fifa World Cup has always been dominated by the traditional powerhouses of football.

Keys to victory: Eden Hazard has lived up to his billing this world cup and has been the spark which has driven the Belgian attack.

'I can tell you this is the saddest moment of my career, the pain is huge because we know that we could have gone far, ' said Neymar. But it wasn't meant to be.

"It is hard to want to find the strength to want to play football again, but I'm sure God will give me enough strength to face anything".

For Brazil, the most successful nation in World Cup history, a quarter-final exit is a massive disappointment.

The 26-year-old forward, in his second World Cup, arrived with the responsibility to lead the Brazilians to the title, but the team didn't get close.

The 32-year-old has scored twice from open play and twice more - just about - during penalty shootout triumphs in Russian Federation and at times appeared to be dragging his flagging team-mates towards that conclusion single-handedly during the 2-2 quarter-final slog against the hosts.

"He added: "... but what you can not criticise him for is for lack of trying or for not having personality; he will always take on a player or carry the weight of the team on his shoulders and I would much rather have a player like that on my side than someone who hides, or is afraid to take risks".

She said the committee had discovered that other babies were sold to people in different cities for 50,000-70,000 rupees. She said their inquiry had revealed that the couple got the child in May and took it to Sonebhadra.

"I think he has built on the potential of the team", the Manchester City midfielder said. "Our dream was interrupted but they didn't get it out of our head or our hearts".

Brazilian superstar Neymar Jr. has drawn attention for more than his goal-scoring skills this World Cup and has quickly become the punchline to a new "challenge" sweeping the internet.

Brazil's coach, Tite, who was invited to stay on to helm the Selecao despite their Finals failure, thanked the fans for their warm welcome.

It was during the 2016-17 season that Lukaku truly established himself as one of the best strikers in the world, with his 25 goals putting him prominently in the shop window.

"I think Madrid have interest in him, but I do not know about any offers or any potential bids but it would be almost impossible to sign a player who can sell a lot like him. If he wants to lie down, he should go home and sleep". I do not have an answer for these questions yet.

The squad left Kazan on Saturday without talking to reporters.

Fernandinho, Marcelo, Paulinho and Willian played in the 2014 loss to Germany.

Friday's woeful performance will now see Brazil wait until the 2022 tournament in Qatar before attempting to cart home the $20m worth trophy.
