Top scorers meet best defence in Brazil v Belgium clash

Can you get full marks in JOE's 'True or False' quiz? (Part 8)

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

"We can't give him any space either, so it is going to take a collective effort".

Ronaldo, though, says Tite ought to get the chance to stay in charge of the team even though they could not extend their stay at Russian Federation 2018 into the semi-finals. "We have to defend as well as we can and then cause them pain when we have the ball".

Former United defender Ferdinand is among those to have been impressed by a striker who can look unplayable on his day, telling BBC Sport: "It's like playing in the school playground and you have a 16-year-old playing against the 11-year-olds".

"It is a big occasion, you can not hide it, if you try and hide it you are a little bit of a stupid person", the Spanish coach said. We've grown into the tournament.

The core of that side remains in place in Russian Federation, where Belgium has won all four of its matches, including coming back from 2-0 down to beat Japan in the round of 16 with a thrilling counterattack in the final seconds of injury time.

On the flanks, Willian and Philippe Coutinho can stretch defences, and fire in shots and crosses, while Neymar and Gabriel Jesus can also pull defences apart from more central positions.

Pele was only 17 when he won his first World Cup in Sweden in 1958.

"When you go into a tournament and you haven't got the know-how of winning a tournament you can not have an advantage over the opponent".

After winning the 2002 World Cup, Brazil have been eliminated by a European team in all four tournaments that have followed since. "We need to respect them because of what they have achieved".

Fred did not make an appearance during Brazil's World Cup campaign as he failed to fully recover from an ankle injury.

"Neymar is one of the biggest exponents of. decisive one-versus-one situations, so we'll have to keep an eye on him and allow our players to have a bigger role in the game". You are a Brazilian journalist?
