Martinez insists Belgium are ready for huge Brazil clash

Neymar has scored two goals in Brazil's four matches, but he has been slammed by soccer pundits across the world for diving and rolling on the ground theatrically in Russian Federation.

Brazil's World Cup quarter-final against Belgium will pit two of Chelsea's best midfielders against each other, but Brazil's Willian told reporters he will be doing everything he can to send his team mate Eden Hazard home early from Russian Federation.

The turn of the tide seemed to coincide with Fellaini and Chadli coming on in the 65th minute, giving Belgium more of a physical edge than they had previously with Dries Mertens and Yannick Carrasco, as both substitutes found the net.

Brazil won the 1994 World Cup final by defeating Italy in a shootout following a goalless draw, eliminated the Netherlands on penalties to make it to the 1998 final and advanced to the quarterfinals four years ago by ousting Chile the same way.

Asked what he would do if Neymar repeated his much-criticised theatrics from Monday's round-of-16 win over Mexico, where he rolled around in apparent agony on the field after clashes with the opposition, Kompany said: "I don't know". Hence, Brazil will have a lot of work to do if they want to maintain the match-winning streak over Belgium.

Kevin De Bruyne hasn't really threatened on the ball as he's playing the Manchester City role without the same possession dominance. When we do that our talent shows.

"I don't think it's the most important game [in my career], because if we win, then the game after that will be more important, won't it?"

"Whether it's going to be realistic, I don't know".

"Belgium is not just [Romelu] Lukaku", he said. They have several high qualities, very skillful, and can play a very vertical game.

If Neymar plays well, Brazil play well - it is as simple as that.

Meanwhile, the likes of Thomas Meunier, Jan Vertonghen and Kevin De Bruyne will need to be careful as their next booking will lead to a one-match ban.

Brazil's Willian in a past press conference before World Cup game.

He, however, admitted that the South Americans are the favourites to qualify for the semi-final. Casemiro has provided a strong shield in front of the Brazilian defence.

For the son of Congolese parents who grew up in tough conditions in the city of Antwerp, meeting the five-time world champions in the World Cup quarter-finals has a fairytale ring to it.

'If the defenders manage to stop Neymar without fouling him then he can not stay on the floor for too long, ' Rivaldo, a 2002 World Cup victor, said.

But their marauding finish, banging in three consecutive goals late in the tie to erase a 2-0 deficit, was a sobering reminder of the firepower at Roberto Martinez's disposal.
