Brazil entered the tournament as favourites but leave with their wait for a sixth World Cup crown still ongoing, and writing in his Sunday World column, Aldridge was heavily critical of Neymar once again.

Brazil's Neymar had a chance to stamp his mark as soccer's next best player in Russian Federation, but he'll be remembered more for his theatrics at this World Cup.

Similarly, Anderlecht, the champions of the country's Pro League, have been responsible for ushering in this so-called "Golden Generation" for Belgium.

Football fans united in a bit of schadenfreude yesterday after Neymar's side were booted out of the World Cup. They have good players in all department led by the brilliance of EdHazardard and Kevin De Bryune with an experienced defensive backing.

The surprise defeat has not deterred the CBF and, according to local media reports, the governing body has offered Tite a contract extension until the 2022 when Qatar will host the next World Cup.

However new PSG signing Buffon thinks failing to win the World Cup could act as extra motivation for Neymar in the coming campaign.

This trend has powered the rise of teams that traditionally do not do well in World Cups.

Of course there's no official word from the Brazil's camp as yet - so no way of knowing if the video is legitimate.

"He had only played about 10 matches and at that time I didn't know him", said De Bruyne.

A typically sumptuous strike proved decisive from the Manchester City star, who was the best player in Pep Guardiola's record-breaking side last season.

"Up until that corner, I felt that we had everything under control", Sweden coach Janne Andersson said. Martinez hopes to succeed where they failed by employing a two-year process to ensure "this is a team, this is not a group of individuals".

He posted to social media: "Unfortunately our dream has been postponed, and it is very painful for all of us that after so much work and dedication on the part of each player, technical commission, and staff, there is vast pain".

"I think that it happens to everyone to get hard moments", he said at his presentation to the media on Monday.
