Belgium lead Brazil on Fernandinho own goal

  • Brazil's Neymar top celebrates with teammate Paulinho after scoring his side's opening goal during the round of 16 match between Brazil and Mexico at the 2018 soccer World Cup in the Samara Arena in Samara Russia Monday

An own goal from Fernandinho gave Belgium the lead before De Bruyne doubled their advantage before half time. Brazil had no such difficulties in the previous round, cruising to a 2-0 victory over a disappointing Mexico side.

However, in a big twist, it seems the 28-year-old is now having a change of heart according to ESPN.com's Michael C. Wright, who said on Thursday that Leonard does not want to play second fiddle to the three-time National Basketball Association champion.

Belgium took the lead in the 13thminute after a Belgium corner from Nacer Chadli was met at the near post by Vincent Kompany with a flick, then diverted into the back of the net by Fernandinho's shoulder. And his form just wasn't sharp enough on the field to get the Selecao going. De Bruyne made no mistake as he lashed home a thunderous drive from distance.

The World Cup is only the the latest major event to be held in the "Sports capital of Russia", which has hosted the Summer university games, the world swimming championships and World Fencing Championships over the last five years.

Football fans watching the World Cup quarterfinal match between Brazil and Belgium have expressed their pleasure at an usual abundance of afro haircuts among the players in both teams.

A 55th-minute strong penalty appeal by Brazil was waved off by Serbian referee Milorad Mazic. Even a pair of penalty-kick claims, from Neymar and Gabriel Jesus, fell on deaf ears.

But reaching the last four looked an increasingly unlikely proposition. But Roberto Firmino, Augusto and Coutinho could not convert gilt-edged opportunities to level the scores. With time rapidly running out, Coutinho wasted another wonderful chance to equalise, after excellent work on the left by Neymar. Still, Belgium weren't home and dry, and Courtois had to make a brilliant diving save from a curling effort from Neymar.
