30 June 2018

It was Silva's header from a Neymar corner that ensured Brazil will take on Group F runners up Mexico in the round of 16 ahead of a possible clash with Belgium in the last-eight.

"Everything comes to the one who knows how to wait", Waston tweeted in Spanish following the match, giving us an idea of what the goal meant to him.

Tite said he suffers with an embarrassment of riches and that one of the hardest parts of his job is deciding who to leave out, having brought on Manchester City star Fernandinho in the second half and left Liverpool's Roberto Firmino on the bench in Moscow.

Speaking with Le Parisien, the PSG captain clarified that he was "joking" when he told Globo Esporte that he was "saddened" by his club and global teammate's behaviour towards him. And I think, either he needs a little break - he might not even be completely fit, because he's always injured going into this tournament but his current standard and his current level, it might not be a bad idea to give him a bit of a break. Brazil eventually won 2-0.
