Neymar and his Brazil teammates have been sent packing from the 2018 World Cup by Belgium at the quarter-final stage after they slumped to a 2-1 defeat on Friday night at the Kazan Stadium.

 

Belgium stunned their opponents by taking a two-goal lead before half time after Kevin De Bruyne brilliantly added to a Fernandinho own goal.

 The Red Devils were able to see things through for just a second-ever appearance in the semis, despite being made to hold on in the final 15 minutes following a consolation header from Renato Augusto.

 While five-time winners Brazil will head back home, prolonging their wait for glory on the world stage to at least 20 years, Belgium now have a semi-final against France - victorious against Uruguay earlier today - to look forward to in St Petersburg next Tuesday.
