However, Mbappe's speed has not been confirmed by any official site.

Giroud said his teammates knew Belgium very well with many players from both teams competing in the English Premier League, including himself.

Though Brazil has yet to hit the heights on the attacking front, it and Uruguay have been the meanest defences in the competition, conceding just one goal apiece in four matches. We have a relatively young team, but we've shown maturity and have been growing since the tournament started.

"Brazil know how to win World Cups, they've done it more than any other country so they've got that psychological barrier out of the way".

"A player can be very good, spectacular even, but they will never be like Pele because he has no heir".

The 1966 champions edged out Colombia in the last 16 with their first-ever World Cup penalty shootout win after three previous defeats, securing a first knockout-round victory at a major tournament since beating Ecuador in 2006. "[But] I think offensively that we are really strong". That we have got players with super technique.

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

The follow-up round of talks between the two men would come when world leaders are in US for the U.N. He added: 'What it suggests is that Kim has no intention of surrendering his nuclear weapons'.

Belgium thrashed the cup favourites Brazil, which had the likes of Neymar and Coutinho.

"You can see our lack of experience sometimes, but we have so many qualities too".

"No. For me, he is not an actor", the former Chelsea man said.

"It is special. We can't let them down back home now".

The 25-year-old said France expect "a very hard game" against Belgium, adding that his relatively young French squad "will have to give the best of ourselves" and that they are looking to show their "growth" and "maturity".

They weren't the only ones to pile into him. Although an exceptional start to next season from Messi or incredible finish to the World Cup from someone like Neymar could make things very interesting, the only way I could really see Ronaldo relinquishing his crown is if Kane or Modric inspire their country to glory in Russian Federation.
