Cristiano Ronaldo and Lionel Messi, the two great individuals of the last decade, have gone home, their hopes of ever winning the World Cup probably over.

Hazard will lead his side out against Japan on Monday night in the last 16, ready to write his name into history books.

Brazil's 2-0 victory over Mexico was the Neymar show as the 26-year-old scored the first - his 57th global goal in 89 appearances - before setting up the second for substitute Roberto Firmino late in the match.

The Samurai Blue of Japan were eliminated from World Cup play on Monday.

"Today we showed how we can proceed as Japanese football", the former AC Milan midfielder told reporters after the match. "They really had good momentum", said Yuki Kakishita, an employee at a real estate agency.

"When you are in the World Cup it's about achieving your aim so it's not something to criticise; the opposite".

Neymar was asked about Osorio's comments but the Brazil manager Tite, who was sitting beside him, interrupted to say he would answer the question. "We have top players, and we play as a group".

Japan fans look dejected after the match against Belgium at Rostov Arena in Russia July 2, 2018. We need to play together, give everything then see what happens.

"We had talked about the score being even if and when I entered the game, but I couldn't come through", said Honda.

Iran also opened with a smash-and-grab raid of a win over Morocco but they were always up against it in a group that also featured Spain and Portugal, while Saudi Arabia beat Egypt in a final fixture that was the deadest of dead rubbers.

"There aren't many World Cup games where you come from 2-0 down to win". They are also known to do the same in other competitions as well.

This is perhaps Belgium's best chance of going deep into a World Cup, with numerous pre-tournament favourites either out or playing in unconvincing fashion in their games so far.

Nishino, who was the JFA's technical director, was given the task of rebuilding trust in the Japan camp, and the team's performances in Russian Federation show that the players responded positively.
