ROFL! Neymar Challenge is making people roll all over the world

ROFL! Neymar Challenge is making people roll all over the world

"I don't care where I play", said Kevin de Bruyne, Belgium's totem.

And while we're on the subject of Neymar: This could have been the World Cup where he made a move from No. 3 in football's superstar hierarchy to No. 1.

Neymar was personally tipped for glory in the competition but endured a hard tournament, scoring twice for Brazil but also receiving severe criticism from around the world as a result of his perceived tendency to dive and exaggerate injuries.

World Cup goalscorers by club: Which team has provided the most goals at Russian Federation 2018?

"In 2014 Brazil tried to use the emotion of Neymar's injury to beat Germany (lost 7-1)", tweeted British journalist Paul Hayward after Brazil was knocked out of Russian Federation 2018 by Belgium.

France take on Belgium in the first of the Semi Finals, in what should be an entertaining game.

For Brazil, the most successful nation in World Cup history, a quarter-final exit is a massive disappointment.

The most ideal and traditional line-up for the final would be France vs England, but we should not disregard the chances of Croatia and Belgium.

The Brazilian attacker drew the ire of football fans around the world for his on-pitch antics, with his regular theatrics after getting fouled becoming tiresome very quickly for supporters. The Chelsea star has been involved in 14 goals in his past 14 internationals, with eight goals and six assists. After a brace in Atletico Madrid's Europa League final win over Marseille, firing France to their second World Cup would cap a glittering year for the newly contracted 27-year-old.

These two have looked the best two teams in the tournament. De Bruyne scored his other knockout goal in the 2-1 win over United States in the round of 16 in 2014. I think he's set to be the next big superstar as Lionel Messi and Cristiano Ronaldo are coming to the end of their careers.
