Belgium vs. Brazil (7/6 2:00pm)
Needing a last-minute winner to complete their comeback over Japan, Belgium manager Roberto Martinez will certainly be making sure that his players are abundantly aware that they cannot afford to get off to such a sluggish start against powerhouse Brazil. While the Samba Boys did not necessarily dominate Mexico in their previous match, Brazil is not the type of side to let a two-goal lead slip often. And again, while this tournament has been full of surprises, Brazil will be working extra hard to avenge 2014’s humiliating exit in front of their own fans. Adding to their chances is the fact that attacking midfielder Douglas Costa has returned to training having missed the last match due to injury. If Belgium are to win, they’ll need stars Eden Hazard and Romelu Lukaku to be at their best. The two have already combined for half of Belgium’s goals this tournament. I expect this match to entertain as both countries like to play attacking football and I would not be surprised if it came down to penalties.
Kenan predicts Brazil to progress.
