Brazil Dives Into The QuarterFinals As Fellaini Blow-dries Japan in The World Cup

Brazil went on to proceed to the 2018 World Cup quarterfinals as Belgium overturned an impending defeat to beat Japan 3-2. The World Cup keeps on getting more entertaining as 'weak' teams harass the big boys and ensure fans get matches worth watching.
Brazil beat Mexico 2-0 assisted by Neymar's goal and his assist that led to Roberto Fermino's goal. The match was full of controversy due to the theatrics displayed by Neymar with many saying he was overreacting to tackles.
Former football stars vented their frustrations online;

Brazil now gets to face Belgium who had a serious scare from Japan despite having an excellent squad.  Belgium clawed back from two goals down to overcome Japan with an extra-time goal from substitute Nacer Chadli, who came in as a substitute.
Belgium became the first side to overturn a two-goal deficit and win a World Cup knockout match since Germany beat England 3-2 after extra time in Mexico in 1970,
After a goal from Jan Vertongen in the 69th minute,  a towering Marouane Fellaini set Belgium level and it was from then that Belgium realized what was at stake.

Japan had a solid game but Belgian quality denied them a chance to rewrite history.
