Soccer Great Neymar Under Fire for 'Faking Injuries'

Brazil fans surprise children in Samara hospital with heartwarming visit

It's Matchday 20 at the 2018 FIFA World Cup and that means the Quarter-Finals are about to get underway.

The former FC Porto and Real Madrid man has asked to undergo treatment in Russian Federation so that he can stay and support his Seleção teammates, who take on Belgium on Friday night in the quarter-finals. The two games will be played on July 6 at 7pm and 11pm respectively.

England finally won a penalty shootout (how good is that to say?), Germany went out at the Group Stages (no really, how good is that to say?!) and even the hosts, Russia, are defying expectations to reach the quarter finals.

Brazil's defensive record under coach Tite has been remarkable, with only six goals conceded in 25 matches, and they have been just as miserly in Russian Federation. I know we have a chance, but I also know that it is very complicated to stop them, not just Neymar.

"There is no doubt that Neymar takes more than his fair share of punishment as he is clearly the player being targeted".

Iniesta calls time on Spain after World Cup exit
It was the classic "tiki-taka" style that led to a World Cup title in 2010, bookended by a pair of European Championships. Russian Federation pulled off one of the biggest upsets in World Cup history when they defeated Spain on PKs.

Favourites Brazil will come up against Belgium's "golden generation" in Kazan on Friday while an exciting young France side spearheaded by Kylian Mbappe take on a shrewd Uruguay outfit in Nizhny Novgorod.

Neymar was accused of similar behavior in Brazil's games earlier in the tournament.

Martinez must now find the right balance to harness the best from Kevin De Bruyne, Eden Hazard and Romelu Lukaku without leaving Belgium exposed.

The debate got heated during the recent World Cup, when Messi scored his first goal against Nigeria on June 27, which sent Arsen into a mood for celebration. Sweden is without a game-changing big name, but England is not. His total time wasted on the pitch adds up to 13 minutes and 50 seconds in the entire tournament. Uruguay will manage this game, but I don't see their midfield being able to give (a possibly injured) Luis Suarez enough supply to keep things close.
