  • 5 Reasons Lionel Messi Should Retire From Argentina After World Cup 2018

Former Arsenal manager, Arsene Wenger believes one of France, Brazil or England will win the 2018 FIFA World Cup in Russian Federation.

Yahoo Sports notes that Neymar might be the most-fouled player in the World Cup, but figures revealed on Thursday show just how much he is "milking every point of contact". In the July 2 game against Mexico, he was down for five minutes and 29 seconds total, with the longest interruption coming when Mexican player Miguel Layun stepped on Neymar's right ankle.

Croatia face hosts Russian Federation in the quarter-finals at the Fisht Stadium in Sochi on Saturday evening with the victor playing either England or Sweden in the last four.

Favourites Brazil will come up against Belgium's "golden generation" in Kazan on Friday while an exciting young France side spearheaded by Kylian Mbappe take on a shrewd Uruguay outfit in Nizhny Novgorod.

Neymar has made headlines at this tournament both for his offence and for his dramatic reactions to being fouled, and he's had plenty of opportunities to be involved in both.




Neymar racked up 5.29 minutes of extra time in the round of 16 against Mexico.

England may be more talented on paper but Sweden has a mojo rolling through this tournament that is hard to reconcile.

"Since the beginning of the World Cup, she mocked Messi and said he couldn't even score a penalty against Iceland". Uruguay will manage this game, but I don't see their midfield being able to give (a possibly injured) Luis Suarez enough supply to keep things close. The difference between these two teams could be the presence of a star.

Whether or not the host country can continue its unexpected run will be one of the main storylines heading into the quarter-finals, along with the meeting of four powerhouses in a pair of games.

There have also been news going round that the 31-year-old could announce his retirement from global football.
