"He's helped me grow a lot as an individual player, he's made football easier", he admitted. We have a relatively young team, but we've shown maturity and have been growing since the tournament started.

"It is still hard for us to understand what happened and where we made a mistake".

However, as much fun as Neymar has provided - perhaps inadvertently - this World Cup, it all came to a crashing halt in the quarter-finals, meaning Neymar and his team were on the next plane home.

"I know the fans here are enjoying it", Kane said. "Our finishing was shambolic throughout the World Cup".

US Service Member Killed in Apparent Insider Attack, Two Wounded
He died Saturday "from wounds sustained during an apparent insider attack" in Tarin Kowt District, Uruzgan Province, Afghanistan . The Taliban did not claim responsibility for the attack, but acknowledged it in a message on its official Telegram channel.

Brazil's shock exit after being beat 2-1 by Belgium last night saw thousands of fans turn to Twitter to gloat. He has good players around him, but we have those too.

Neymar was responsible for just one of Brazil's nine shots on target as they crashed out against Belgium, leaving him with just two goals to show for his efforts in Russian Federation.

"We knew set plays would be key", Maguire said.

"It's a World Cup semi-final. there are no favourites", he added. "This team have been playing together for seven or eight years and I think he has brought us tighter together with more belief in winning it".

Fans Celebrate The Fact Neymar Will Be 'Rolling Home' After Brazil's Defeat
France have always been a footballing stronghold but as we have seen in this World Cup , reputation precedes determination. Neymar scored his 56th and 57th global goals during the tournament in Russian Federation .

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

Kane meanwhile has been deadly in front of goal and will fancy himself against Croatia's centre-back pairing of Domagoj Vida and Dejan Lovren, the latter of which Kane terrorised this past Premier League season with three goals. I'm very happy to be part of this team, I'm proud of all the players. Could Ronaldo outshine his rival of 10 years, finally allowing supporters to answer the unending question of who is the best - Messi or Ronaldo? Additionally, a fixed system was employed in terms of formation (4-3-3) for every age-group team.

France vs. Belgium promises to be the pick of the two semifinals, because both teams are rapier-quick, packed with talent, favour open, attacking play and have outstanding players - Mbappe for France, Kevin de Bruyne for Belgium - who can make a difference.
