Five-time champions Brazil had arrived in Russian Federation with high hopes of putting the humiliation of their 7-1 semi-final thrashing on home soil by Germany four years ago behind them, but were instead sent packing by a clinical Belgian outfit.

Belgium came through a tense sense quarter-final clash with Brazil to book their place in the last four while the French recorded a comfortable win over Uruguay.
