"We had fine games with Saudi Arabia and with Egypt as well as with Spain".

While Brazil have not lost in their last 16 matches, Belgium are equally unbeaten in 22 matches. Croatia advanced after a penalty shootout in Nizhny Novgorod.

"Uruguay have so many assets, so many qualities", said France coach Didier Deschamps.

Zlatko Dalic's side take on Russian Federation in the last eight in Sochi on Saturday, looking to reach the semi-finals at the showpiece tournament for the first time since 1998. After Germany exited, I was supporting Japan, for, it was the only Asian team.

The victor of the tie will face either England or Sweden, who also play on Saturday, in the last four at Moscow's Luzhniki Stadium next week. Now I am thinking only about the next game. A bet on France meant we got plenty of value on a top-notch team which is why they were our pick to win the World Cup. Brazil is ranked second and Belgium third.

That comment might be an indication of how Uruguay will approach the game. Both sides can score, but the question is whether Belgium can finally become a big team by defeating Brazil. "Now is the time and hopefully we can achieve a similar result", Perisic said.

"I can not give you all my information", Tabarez said Thursday.

None of the teams in this side of the draw would have begun the tournament with realistic expectations of reaching the final.

The veteran coach adds "in less than 24 hours, you will know who will play and who will be on the bench".

It was 1994, and the Swedes made a similar run to the latter stages of the World Cup.

Croatia's Milan Badelj had his low shot was stopped by Denmark 'keeper Kasper Schmeichel's legs, though Croatia still advanced to the quarterfinals.

"Playing for my team is a great honour and a pleasure, but to win the World Cup with Croatia is nearly unthinkable, like the most lovely fairy tale!"

The Argentina great who is a Federation Internationale de Football Association ambassador told Venezuelan broadcaster Telesur that the outcome of that game was a "monumental theft".

REUTERS/GETTYCould England make it to the final of the World Cup?

On Friday, July 6, Uruguay will play France in Nizhny Novgorod at 3pm.

"My whole family watched that championship and I remember how we celebrated the success then and I feel proud", Rebic said.

Saturday is a day of all-European quarterfinal ties.

After Mexico was eliminated this week by Brazil, fans went to the Izmailovo market in Moscow looking to swap their sombreros. But sadly, they're already out of the World Cup. "The players that they have ... both teams deserve to be facing each other a little further in, in this tournament and not in the quarter-final", Kompany said. I can even say some kind of a burden to be better than them.

The Three Lions are preparing for a last-eight meeting with the Swedes that is set to kick off at 1500BST on Saturday - as is the friendly at the Swansway Chester Stadium.

"Thousands of the city's visitors, who also consume water, are contributing to the increase", Samara Communal Systems wrote in a press release on Wednesday the newspaper reported.
