My god, what did we just watch. The game of the tournament, certainly, and probably one of the best matches in recent World Cup history. All I know for sure is that Belgium beat Brazil today, 2-1, in a quarterfinal that had all the intensity, insanity, momentum-swings, and amazing plays that make this entire spectacle worth every second.
Brazil (and this is just an okay Brazil team) played great and has nothing to be ashamed of unlike Germany who finished last in their group and Argentina who have nothing but Messi and got torn apart by Croatia and France or Spain who only seem to know how to pass around a ball and went out to Russia.
Brazil can hold their head high. They might have been my favourites but is not surprising that number 3 ranked beat number 2 ranked.
The man of the match was without a doubt Belgium’s goal keeper Thibaut Courtois.
On the other hand Uruguay got eliminated by France.
The last two South American teams are gone.
And Brazil leaves the World Cup but he leave as the recordist winner.
Ladies and gentlemen… Welcome to the EuroCup!!!
