Belgium took advantage of some an overly attacking Brazilian approach at the Kazan Arena to take a 2-0 lead by half-time.

Fortunately for the Selecao, Belgium has a poor record against South American sides at the World Cup.

"It's a heavy, bitter feeling".

John Stones has branded Colombia the dirtiest team he has ever faced as the England defender prepares for his side's World Cup quarter-final against Sweden.

Tabarez admitted not many teams score headers from set-pieces against his side but refused to blame his goalkeeper Fernando Muslera for letting Griezmann's shot slip through his fingers for France's second.

Uruguay almost replied immediately, also from a set-piece, when Martin Caceres' header was saved low to his right by France goalkeeper Hugo Lloris.

It truly felt like The Three Lions won the whole World Cup when Eric Dier scored the last penalty goal for England, but, understandably, the Colombian supporters were not happy about it.

I am not going to say anything else about Cavani because I already have given enough information and I don't want to get into games. But the best thing for us was to beat them at football. "Today we played against opponents that were stronger than we were". Uruguay, the unlikely qualifiers who beat Portugal to make it here, against France, a team that looks like it could easily win the entire championship. "To do that on the world stage, scoring goals, is a great achievement and is helping us enormously as a team".

The fourth quarter-final match, also on tomorrow, will see host nation Russian Federation take on Croatia in Sochi.

"We want to keep making that history", he added.

Reaching the semi-finals would be unbelievable for the home nation, who were written off before the tournament had even begun.

"He doesn't know what we have to do to succeed in football".

France forward Antoine Griezmann said he chose not to celebrate his goal against Uruguay in their World Cup quarterfinal on Friday "out of respect".

This will make Russian Federation 2018 the fourth successive world cup to won by a European side. If the Barcelona man remains in a central midfield role, you could see him doing damage, but there could be a temptation from Tite to move him out to the right wing where he played in qualifying, in order to have a more defensively responsible midfield.
