Neymar unwilling to play football again after Brazil’s exit from World Cup

Vincent Kompany

Brazilian superstar Neymar Jr. has drawn attention for more than his goal-scoring skills this World Cup and has quickly become the punchline to a new "challenge" sweeping the internet.

Brazil were left stunned in Friday night's match in Kazan, finding themselves 2-0 down at half-time and unable to rescue the game in the second half, despite substitute Renato Augusto getting a goal back late on.

"You have to find solutions, you have to find reaction but what you have to find more than anything is the desire and togetherness of a group of players, that they are desperate to perform", Martinez said.

"A supporter who loves his team, it's in victory but also in defeat", said Ali, who works in deliveries for a multinational firm.

Belgium coach Roberto Martinez applauds fans after the match.

Many in the male-majority crowd donned Brazil's yellow jersey for the occasion, while families watched from their balconies as the sound of drums and vuvuzelas filled the narrow street.

Nothing says the Fourth of July like barbecues, fireworks and Joey Chestnut winning the Nathan's Hot Dog Eating Contest . The judges originally counted 64 hot dogs, but it was later revealed that an entire plate wasn't counted.

If we give Brazil a chance, they will take it. "Perhaps in one year or two, he will be at their level".

"The fact that the game against Brazil is defining for our generation is for sure, though".

The victor will play France or Uruguay in the semifinals in St. Petersburg on Tuesday.

"We know what we are capable of but Brazil are the favourites, putting us into a different role". We have to defend as well as we can and then cause them pain when we have the ball. The way he held up play, created space for others, ran forward with skill, and generally made life a nightmare for Tite's side was another glowing example of how much he has progressed since joining Man United. "[But] I think offensively that we are really strong". Not only has Belgium not won any of its games against South American teams in the knockout stages, it hasn't even managed to score a goal.

The victor of the tie will face either France or Uruguay in St Petersburg on July 10.
