Mexico star Guardado hits back at Neymar with taunt over Brazil's exit

Belgium celebrate against Japan

A Fernandinho own goal and a brilliant Kevin De Bruyne strike gave Belgium a spot in the last four for the second time after 1986 and sees Brazil eliminated in the quarterfinals for the third time in the last four World Cups. While Kompany headed a corner kick on, it deflected into Brazil's net off Fernandinho's shoulder for an own-goal.

Goalkeeper Thibaut Courtois made a number of fine saves and needed every inch of his nearly-two metre frame to deny Brazil's talisman Neymar with a glove in the dying minutes.

The Manchester United hotshot provided the assist that set up Kevin De Bruyne for the decisive goal in Belgium's World Cup quarter-final win over Brazil yesterday.

Belgium face France in the semifinals on Tuesday.

There's not much to choose between the World Cup favourites and the tournament's top scorers - but one of them will soon be going home.

It was a Neymar-Hazard clash, two players with similar playing quality of skill, speed and dexterity but on the night it was the Belgian man who showed goal, led with example, whilst the other in yellow, looked out of sorts, tried on many occasions to win an underserving sympathy, penalty from the referee. Renato Augusto finally broke through to get Brazil on the board with 15 minutes to play.

Five-time world champion Brazil came into Friday's quarterfinal match at Russian Federation 2018 as the clear favorite to beat the Red Devils and reach next week's semifinal versus France, which had dispatched Uruguay hours earlier.

ZTE names new CEO, top executives to comply with US mandate
Commerce Department's Bureau of Industry and Services (BIS) to conduct certain business from July 2 until Aug 1. The department's decision to grant a reprieve for ZTE has touched off a bipartisan revolt in Congress.

To do that in any game is impressive, but against the mighty Brazil in a quarter-final is just ridiculous.

Lukaku looked invincible as he powered through Brazil's midfield before finding De Bruyne in space on the right.

Coutinho's first-time shot flew wide and yet another Neymar penalty appeal was rejected, before the world's most expensive player drew a phenomenal fingertip save from Courtois in the 94th minute. But if you think you're just gonna walk out of there and get your way because you've thrown this little spoiled hissy fit and become one of the most unlikable characters ...

But Brazil needed to be better, too, as Augusto and Philippe Coutinho both failed to put golden chances on target with the clock ticking toward full time.

Brazil saw two penalty claims in quick succession waved away by Serbian referee Milorad Mazic after Neymar tumbled following contact with Fellaini and Gabriel went to ground after a challenge from Vincent Kompany.

This is a story not just about Number 10s but about Brazil's Number 12 - their fans in the stands.
