According to João Miranda, the captain of Brazil tonight, the Belgians are afraid. He responds to the statement of Vincent Kompany, who said that the Red Devils do not lie awake of the confrontation with the Brazilians. His reasoning reads as follows: ‘You must prepare yourself, especially against the Brazilian national team, and a leader when Kompany should radiate confidence to his teammates, as the experienced players with us that should be doing. It is a way to confidence to show fear to hide.” In fact, he says so: we are also afraid.


In the meantime, they are there over the Channel sure: England is going to the world cup win. Wherever you look, everywhere you see: football’s coming home. Only the ever likeable Alan Shearer is a bit on the brakes: “There are probably already more talented English teams at a world cup, but what is the unity and the team spirit is concerned, we have never had a better group. From now on, anything is possible, but I refuse to think about our quarter-final against Sweden. This world cup is so ridiculously unpredictable been until now.’ He might be afraid?


Is he fit or not? Uruguay is in the ban of the state of Edinson Cavani. The 31-year-old striker since back yesterday on the train, but kept it in separate sessions. A scan showed that there was no muscle tear in his linkerkuit, but a swelling. The clash against France may be too early for him. Coach Oscar Tabárez remains mysterious: ‘You will see who is playing and who is not.’ Didier Deschamps is ready for the two scenarios: “I prepare my team for Uruguay, with Cavani and on a Uruguay without Cavani. For Cavani, that is world’s best.’ You can smell the fear already?


Now Lionel Messi and his bags packed, this becomes more and more the world cup of Diego Maradona. The Spaniard left after the 1/8 final match between Colombia and England again, notice with a few inflammatory statements. He found that the Colombians ripped off. “If you are the referee google, then you know that he is not the suitable man for such a important match to lead… Mark Geiger, an American, what a coincidence!’ That the arbitrator only spoke English, was in favor of England, had he understood. The FIFA was not set up with the commentary of Maradona, and let it also know. Then scribbled Fell back. On social media he posted a photo of him and Gianni Infantino , with the message: ‘I have absolute respect for the work of the FIFA and the referees.’ Doing a good job, Diego!
