Wenger Tips France, Brazil, England To Win World Cup

Layun would have hardly stepped on Neymar's foot but the way the later went flat on the ground and rolled in agony seemed like he was shot in the leg.

The quadrennial tournament in Russian Federation this summer has borne witness to the capitulation of world football's perennial powerhouses as Germany, Spain and Argentina have all faltered en route to the quarter-finals.

On Monday, the PSG forward scored the first goal and set up the second for Roberto Firmino as Brazil beat Mexico to progress to the quarter-finals of the World Cup. "I was very said to have missed Euro 2016 but I hope I have made some amends now and I hope things are moving forwards now. We know with Tite's Brazil and particularly with Neymar and Coutinho, this is a real World Cup contender". "I am here to win with my teammates".

Belgium defender Thomas Meunier admits he doesn't have a plan to stop Brazil star Neymar because he is simply too unpredictable.

RTS also reports that Neymar was down for almost two minutes against Serbia and three minutes and 40 seconds in the game against the broadcaster's own home country, Switzerland. "It's very hard to come back the way he's done".

Neymar was slammed by fans after Brazil's first game in the tournament, and he has been the subject of conversations ever since.

"There are many ways to see football and interpret it", Ronaldo told reporters. Neymar uses his mobility to defend himself from the bumps and hits that are dished out to him.

I think England are starting to believe that maybe this could be their World Cup. "Criticism is nonsense. TV shows and newspapers just want to fill the space".

Self-professed sports scientist and Twitter user, Ross Tucker, has called out Brazil's superstar, Neymar Jr, for what he describes as his "proclivity for injury".

Instead, Neymar has become the king of all memes, with the internet mocking his gamesmanship, incessant flopping and "histrionics", as ESPN FC's Shaka Hislop said in his latest commentary for The Undefeated.

Maybe now, at the quarterfinal stage, the brilliance of Neymar's play will do all the talking.
