Former England defender Rio Ferdinand said Belgium will now take momentum into their last-eight tie with five-time world champions Brazil.
A Reddit user posted an image from Neymar's Instagram story showing a lobby with some very recognizable usernames including "Menino Ney" (PSG player Neymar Jr), -J-E-S-U-S (Manchester City's Gabriel Jesus) and coutinho11 (Barcelona's Philippe Coutinho).
The 2018 World Cup may go down in history as one of the greatest ever, with every round thus far producing drama by the bucketload.
Brazil's steady progress into the quarter-finals of the World Cup has marked them out as one of the favorites.
"They criticize Neymar more than the players who hunt him down over 90 minutes".
Neymar must help Brazil lift the trophy next week if he wants to join the greats, according to the World Cup victor who first took home FIFA's top individual award.
While his scoring is so often the focus, Neymar also creates goals for his teammates.
Cutting out the play-acting would also help Neymar win votes, 1990 World Cup victor Lothar Matthaeus said Wednesday. I just have to play football, help my team, I came to win, not for something else. The Brazilian was on fire last night and caught a lot of eyes with his performance and his look, as he changed his hairstyle for the third time this World Cup.
Matthaus was equally critical of Colombia's players during their agonising penalty defeat to England in their round of 16 clash.
But Silva is confident Neymar will emulate the recent feats of his other Paris Saint-Germain clubmates Edinson Cavani and Kylian Mbappe who scored two goals each in their pre-quarterfinals against Portugal and Argentina.
