Belgium's time to shine at World Cup, says Hazard

Lionel Messi and Cristiano Ronaldo had been on a quarter-final collision course but the closest they will now come to each other in Russia is the airport departure lounge

Messi and Ronaldo, they are out now, but there are still a lot of good players at the World Cup. "We know what to do and what not to do, we are better off", insisted Hazard.

"Now, he's returned to a very high level. I just could not get back in time". That game will take place on Friday in Kazan.

The 61st-ranked Japanese were given little chance of making an impact at the tournament, but their gritty group stage display and last-16 match versus Belgium won over the fans.

I want to go through the quarter-final, semi-final and maybe the final. "Therefore, I don't think it is really useful to practice for a penalty shootout, per se", he said, before outright stating that "we haven't actually practiced" them. "We spoke about the possibility of coming up against Brazil a few months ago, and here we are", he said.

Belgium is the leading scorer of the World Cup and faces Asia's last remaining representative at the final match hosted at Rostov Arena.

Roberto Martinez's risky side have lived up to their billing so far, winning all three group games.

However, Adnan Januzaj, who scored the victor in that match, has suffered a knee knock in training.

Although Japan would have made for a wonderful underdog story, the plot of a clash between two heavyweight teams is something I wouldn't have wanted the Japanese to spoil.

"We'll see tomorrow", Hazard said on Sunday, when asked if the long break would disrupt the players.

"Japan showed people that they are competitive on the world stage", added Iwakiri. Although he instructed his team to "stay put" and play passively in the closing minutes against Poland because a 1-0 loss would be good enough to advance, he said the strategy was "regrettable" and pledged to return to an aggressive style.
