Fans welcome Brazil team with stones after crashing out of World Cup

"We're ambitious and only thinking about winning the World Cup", he explained in his pre-match press conference. "I did my job and made sure the team was calm in hard situations". "The pain is very great because we knew we could get there".

"I am saying absolutely nothing about my future", he told reporters.

Here we are less than a week to the end of a completely unpredictable, engrossing and rather eerie World Cup that no one is planning to forget. "It is an opportunity in our careers and we have to grab it with both hands".

France take on Belgium next Tuesday (7pm) with England facing Croatia 24 hours later.

And Martinez said there had been no secret to success, just the following of a process as team and manager got to know one another's individual talents during his time in charge.

The Belgians led 2-0 at half time but Brazil were by far the better team in the second half and in addition to their goal from Renato Augusto with 14 minutes remaining they hit the woodwork and forced Thibaut Courtois into several excellent saves.

The results as well the build-up to the World Cup have demonstrated that there has been a power shift.


However, the fans of the south American team were unimpressed with the performance of their team in that game as they rained stones on their bus on their return home over the weekend.

Brazil almost dug themselves out of it. Renato Augusto's brilliant header gave his team hope, cutting the lead in half with 14 minutes to go before stoppage time.

Brazil have now been knocked out in the quarter-finals at three of the last four tournaments since winning the World Cup for the fifth time, in Japan in 2002.

While his call-up to the World Cup squad was to be expected, Chadli would have been a shock inclusion in the squad even if he had not missed most of the season for West Bromwich Albion because of injury. No host nation has won the World Cup since France in 1998.

France forward Antoine Griezmann has scored seven goals in his last six knockout stage matches in major tournaments (World Cup and EUROs).

Another indication of the winds of change: Among those taking their place is Belgium, which has never won the title but looks capable of doing so after reaching the semis for only the second time.
