Thierry Henry has shaped Romelu Lukaku into World Cup's most impressive striker

Thierry Henry has shaped Romelu Lukaku into World Cup's most impressive striker

Neymar left fans the message on Saturday, a day after Brazil's 2-1 loss to Belgium in the World Cup quarterfinals in Kazan. He is more concerned about being on the floor.

However, having sealed his £52m switch from Shakhtar Donetsk to United, the midfielder endured a torrid World Cup.

In possibly the biggest win in Belgium's history, they knocked off Brazil by a 2-1 score.

Neymar, regarded as one of the most talented players on the Brazilian side, was not seen in the disembarkation area.

The forward, who became the world's most expensive player when he left Barcelona for Paris Saint-Germain a year ago for 222 million euros ($264 million), will be 30 by the time the next World Cup comes around in Qatar in 2022.

There has also been the rise of new strong teams in the case of Belgium.

Brazil came to Russian Federation with a strong team, a well-liked coach and a great star.

"We are very, very proud of the diversity we have in the squad", Martinez added.

Of course, he must work to correct the mistakes that were made at this tournament, but the five-time winners have the basis of an extremely good side that certainly have the ability to flourish in four years time. Belgium thrashed the cup favourites Brazil, which had the likes of Neymar and Coutinho.

But in an online poll in Globoesporte, 56% of fans rated Neymar's World Cup as unsatisfactory with just 4% believing the forward produced his best football in Russian Federation.

"I think Madrid have interest in him, but I do not know about any offers or any potential bids but it would be almost impossible to sign a player who can sell a lot like him".

"Now a lot of questions have been answered in terms of saying "this is a team, not a group of individuals". Pele scored a hat-trick against France in the semi-final of that tournament, the last teen to score in the last four of the competition.

"I don't feel pressure, but I'm excited about playing in a very special match". That match will bring together some of the best artists of the round leather game in the universe at the present, including France's Paul Pogba, Antoine Griezmann and Kylian Mbappe, and Belgium's Romelo Lukaku, Kevin De Bruyne and Eden Hazard.
