Quarterfinals: Brazil vs Belgium

Recommended Posts

Still ridiculous that Lukaku is at centre instead of defending corners.

Whatever works, I guess.

OOOOOOH! Great move! GAME ON!!! 

 

What on earth is Marcelo doing backing off to Kevin de Bruyne from there though?! Guess he was banking on the Man City KdB not turning up :D

I'm starting to think that Gabriel is a very overrated player.

He's basically a poacher, so he lives a bit on confidence. Brazil's desire to play everything through Neymar doesn't exactly create the quality of chances City's front line and quality final balls and rapid counters manage.

Belgium on the other hand are counter attacking very much like City...

Brazil forget how to defend.

Maybe we should have Firmino in defense then. :D

We need to talk about that goal from Kevin. :eek:

Also... how the Fagner did I end up on the France vs Uruguay thread? :lol:

I know, but his offball movement is pretty bad.

As there's a saying in my language, it's better to be born without balls than without luck.

Martinez is one of those people. :D

Well no, he fits perfectly into this Brazil team. As evidenced by you being miles better every time he comes onto the pitch.

That's from the game beign stretched, he doesn't fit perfectly for Brazil because they don't need another player dropping deep when they have Paulinho/Neymar/Coutinho arleady in that space.

Brazil defence just a mess once again when faced against an actual decent attacking side.

Everyone gushing over this **** Brazil team has been hilarious 

Could be another 7-1 this 

I feel vindicated - but I said that with the Japan game so best to not brag until full time.

They've only looked good when a certain suspiciously white toothed striker has been on the pitch.

Belgium still look vulnerable in defence. Brazil need to not give up.

At the risk of the wrath of Man City fans, Jesus has had an awful World Cup hasn't he?

Brazil should bring in Firmino and Douglas Costa at half time.

The weird thing is you're actually creating chances at a better rate than other games and Belgium's defence is looking shaky, it's just that absolutely everything is dropping for them and I'm not seeing much confidence in anything Brazil do

He hasn't been awful but he's been disappointing.

Luck.

With enough luck, they might actually grow. :brock:

The game wasn't stretched at any time he's come on from what I can think of? Usually when Brazil are struggling to break teams down who are sat deep defending the box.

Hazard dribbling is majestic at times. Like the ball is glued to his feet.

Haha if only. Alas I don't think Lukaku fits a Pep team, even though he is immensely talented.

If Belgium do win this game, I suppose nobody will talk about their defense anymore.

Still don't think Brazil are out of it. Belgium don't defend anywhere near well enough to be secure with a 2-0. They need a third
