  • Man Utd superstar Alexis Sanchez reveals who he wants to win the World Cup

The World Cup is now in the "final sixteen" stage, which will then see the eight winning teams go through to the quarter finals.

Brazil and Belgium both progressed to the quarter-final of the World Cup after yet another dramatic day of last-16 action in Russian Federation.

Nishino stepped in as coach just months before the World Cup, after Japan's Football Association unceremoniously canned his predecessor Vahid Halilhodzic.

Sanchez, whose Chile failed to qualify for the tournament, has backed his club teammate Lukaku to go on win the award.




The World Cup will be remembered for many things, and the antics of Brazilian superstar Neymar will be right up there. We don't have many resting days over the season. But the five-time World Champions are starting to find their feet in the tournament as they entered the knockout stages after two consecutive 2-0 victories.

After a heartbreaking loss to Belgium in the round of 16 on Monday, the Japanese men's team stayed behind to clean up their locker room.

Honda, playing in his third World Cup, was unable to help the Samurai Blue reach the quarterfinals for the first time in their history, and is stepping down just two games short of a century of worldwide appearances.

"The ones who played against England are desperate to contribute again and those who were rested want to get out on the pitch".

"Look, I think it's more an attempt to undermine me than anything else".

"This was a really good team, their passing and scoring and teamwork", said 39-year-old hairdresser Kenichi Okegami.
