The head coach of the national team of Belgium on football Roberto Martinez has shared his expectations from today's quarterfinal match of the 2018 world Cup against Brazil.

"I am here to win and I hope I can improve".

Martinez signed a new contract to lead Belgium to the 2020 European Championships and said he lived "from project to project" and that in football "you can only look at the present".

'It's like playing in the school playground and you have a 16-year-old playing against the 11-year-olds, It's like that he's too big and too strong for everyone, ' Ferdinand explained.

Ferdinand's views were quickly echoed by fellow pundit Alan Shearer, who suggested the Manchester United man was close to the flawless centre-forward performance. However, all vividly remembered the confrontation between Brazil and Mexico, where the first won a victory with the score 2:0.

Much of the focus surrounding Brazil's bid for a record-extending sixth world title has inevitably been on Neymar.

In fairness, the compiler of the statistics said that Neymar is the player against whom most often foul the opponents. All he needs is the goal and you've got the ideal centre forward performance'. "We are all very optimistic that it will happen, hopefully in minutes, hours or the next few days".
