BELGIAN RELISH BRAZIL CHALLENGE
After their thrilling 3-2 success over Japan on Monday night‚ Belgium are confident they can beat Brazil in their quarterfinal clash on Friday.
It is a “dream” match-up for the Belgians‚ who have a number of global stars in their ranks such as Eden Hazard‚ Kevin de Bruyne and Romelu Lukaku‚ but will still be regarded as underdogs.
"When you play against Brazil‚ you need to understand they are the best team in the competition‚" coach Roberto Martinez said.
"We can enjoy it from the first minute. I don't think anyone expects us to go through to the semifinals."
Brazil booked their quarterfinal place with a 2-0 win over Mexico.
