Brazil Fans 'Welcome Back' Players By Throwing Stones At Team Bus

Brazil's forward Neymar on the ground during FIFA World Cup 2018 round of 16 against Mexico at the Samara Arena

After Brazil were knocked out by Belgium in the quarter-final of the FIFA World Cup 2018, social media was flooded with messages of disappointment saying that this World Cup is a tournament of upsets.

Martinez urged his players not to waste the opportunity of a lifetime and become the first Belgian side to reach a World Cup final.

Kevin De Bruyne has praised Belgium boss Roberto Martinez for instilling the belief in his team that they can win the World Cup.

Neymar, regarded as one of the most talented players on the Brazilian side, was not seen in the disembarkation area.

Also striking: the final four teams are all European.

According to Sportbible, the fans expressed their displeasure to the team on their arrival as they hauled stones at the team bus after touching down in Brazil from Russian Federation.

If the 26-year-old Brazilian did not set the World Cup alight, neither did he perform terribly. He succeeded Carlos Dunga in 2016 and guided Brazil to a comfortable World Cup qualification. "It's not something you need to travel to Belgium to realise", he said.

Four years ago at home the pressure, and actually not having that great a side, got to them on home soil but they arrived in Russian Federation as the favourites and with a better side than 2014.

"I think Madrid have interest in him, but I do not know about any offers or any potential bids but it would be almost impossible to sign a player who can sell a lot like him".

The harshest comments were reserved for star forward Neymar, who scored just two goals in Brazil's five matches. "He answered, "Maybe I should thank him a little", recalled former Chelsea team-mate Demba Ba of Hazard.

The Chelsea winger showcased his individual skill numerous times against Brazil, especially with a mesmerizing dribble from wide in the second half, and the statistics showed that all 10 of his dribbles in the game ended with his team still in possession.

De Bruyne knows how risky they are and is taking little for granted.

And he is part of an attacking unit that the French will be very wary of Tuesday night in St Petersburg.

From the heartbreak and shock of seeing the big boys head home because they so much as rely on pedigree and not form to the anxiety of wishing to know what lies ahead of us, we shall spend this week rubbing our elbows in anticipation of July 15.
