Man Utd superstar Alexis Sanchez reveals who he wants to win the World Cup

Man Utd superstar Alexis Sanchez reveals who he wants to win the World Cup

The five-time champions overcame a tricky start to the last-16 tie, as second-half goals from Neymar and Roberto Firmino sealed a deserved victory and a last-eight clash with either Belgium or Japan, who play later in the day.

He will nearly certainly be replaced by Manchester City's Fernandinho, another favorite of Brazil manager Tite, who has played some part in every Brazil game at this year's World Cup. "We have good training sessions, and I'm sure we'll be ready tomorrow".

"Messi and Ronaldo are out now but a lot of good players are still in the World Cup".

Colombia midfielder Carlos Sanchez described Kane as an "emblematic player" ahead of their meeting with England in the last 16 on Tuesday. It's in our hands. "It would've been great to win but the players showed us a great game of football", Shunji Saga, a fan who stayed up all night for the game, told Al Jazeera. The Red Devils are right in the midst of their golden generation, with so many of their most important players now in their physical primes. I have known him for seven years, since he first came to Chelsea at the age of 18 in 2011, and we are really close.

The best he could hope for, he said Sunday, was for his players to play "Japan-like" - contest every ball, control the ball, play dogged defense and stage lightening counterattacks. In celebration of our City Centurions' remarkable, record-smashing season, we are running a 100-themed summer feature.

"It's going well, there's still a long way to go, the most important thing is winning games", said the 24-year-old Tottenham star.

"Maybe Belgium feel the tournament is starting after their three wins, but I'd like to feel we are on a par with them". Coach Tite insists his talisman is now approaching his best form again, four months after undergoing surgery on a fractured foot.

"Japan is totally different to Wales (the side that eliminated Belgium from the 2016 Euros), and we'll take this as seriously as possible".
