Eden Hazard made these World Cup predictions and lots have come true

Brazil, the overwhelming favorite to win the World Cup, has been knocked out, and now the tournament is wide open Fastest Players At The World Cup So Far, Mbappe Not In Top 20?

When France go up against Belgium in the World Cup semi-final at the Saint Petersburg Stadium on Tuesday, the 40-year-old Henry will be on the opposing bench, looking to stop his country from advancing to Sunday's final.

Hazard posted a wallchart with his predictions for this summer's World Cup, which saw him correctly guess three of the semi-finalists, as well as getting other results right along the way.

"You said European football is stronger, but we don't know who will win the World Cup this time".

The Selecao entered the tournament in Russian Federation as favourites to lift the trophy but struggled to show their best form at any point of the tournament, ultimately making it to the quarter-finals before being eliminated by a vastly superior Belgium side.

Brazil have won the World Cup 5 times followed by Italy and Germany, who have won it 4 times.

Some suggested that the stunning goal from Nacer Chadli in injury time was due to the Samurai Blue's tactical naivety but Belgium also cut through experienced Brazil in the same way several times in the quarter-finals.




"He is important for our style; we need this supporting play", said Deschamps.

Such issues seem a lifetime ago as Roberto Martinez prepares his charges for the biggest game in Belgian footballing history. They're both great keepers. Lukaku has four but seven of his teammates have scored, too.

After making it through the quarterfinals, the final four squads will have a couple of days to prepare for their next matches. A match won is only over 90 or 120 mins. Casemiro has provided a strong shield in front of the Brazilian defence.

"I can say this is the saddest moment of my career", Neymar wrote on his Instagram page.

Midfielder Fernandinho, whose own-goal in the 13th minute gave Belgium a 1-0 lead at Kazan Arena was being criticized by fans in Brazil, including some racist attacks on his social media accounts.
