Belgium coach Martinez: Those who work with Fellaini appreciate him

Belgium coach Martinez: Those who work with Fellaini appreciate him

Some 25 minutes later and the biggest comeback in a World Cup knockout match for almost half a century - since West Germany's 3-2 victory over England in the 1970 quarterfinals - was complete but Martinez knows that Belgium can not afford to give the five-times world champions any kind of start on Friday. But I can tell you that we're going to look them in the eyes. "All that interests me now is to help the group, we are in the quarterfinal of a World Cup".

"Stay strong and know we are with you", Klopp said in a video message sent to CNN.

Lopetegui was replaced on a temporary basis by Fernando Hierro for Spain's World Cup campaign, but the search is on for a long-term replacement.

Playmaker De Bruyne usually features higher up the pitch for the Premier League champions under Pep Guardiola, and his change of position at the World Cup has led to plenty of questions regarding his position for the national team, where he plays in a two alongside Axel Witsel. They will have chances.

"Maybe it's this sort of match that we needed for the future", said Hazard, the captain.

"We're constantly improving. We just have to step up to another level against Brazil". We call Brazilians are favorites not because they are afraid of them. Ah, I see you're too scared to reply.

Ferdinand's views were quickly echoed by fellow pundit Alan Shearer, who suggested the Manchester United man was close to the ideal centre-forward performance.

As has been the case throughout this World Cup, Brazilian forward Neymar will likely garner much of the attention during the match, both for his skills and speed as well as his on-field theatrics.

The 26-year-old was widely criticised for his theatrical reaction when he claimed that Mexico's Miguel Layun stood on his ankle in Brazil's 2-0 last-16 victory, but Tite previously said he supported Neymar's view of the incident.

"I think Kevin De Bruyne's influence in our team has been a lot deeper; a little bit earlier, allowing his team to have the influence that we have in the final third and being a real playmaker for us". "We are all very optimistic that it will happen, hopefully in minutes, hours or the next few days".
