Brazil have suffered a blow after learning full-back Danilo will not feature again at the 2018 FIFA World Cup due to an ankle injury. So they thought it was the best tactics for them, and I think they made the right decision.
Ante Cacic was sacked on the eve of Croatia's final qualifying match in October and replaced by Zlatko Dalic, who guided the team past Greece in a two-legged play-off to reach the World Cup. "For fans' comfort we chose to organise an additional space to watch the games near the Spartak stadium", Moscow Mayor Sergei Sobyanin wrote on Twitter. The South American country may not include as many big names as the French side, but the team does have world class talent within its ranks and expertly works together to maintain a solid defensive shape, conceding just one goal so far.
He recovered and was available for the 2-0 win against Mexico in the round of 16, but coach Tite kept his replacement, Fagner, in the starting lineup.
But first, the world´s most expensive player and his star-studded supporting cast have to get past Belgium, who boast an array of their firepower, to reach the semi-finals.

On a dramatic night in Moscow's Spartak Stadium, goalkeeper Jordan Pickford made a key save from Carlos Bacca before Eric Dier's spot-kick gave England their first-ever win on penalties at a World Cup at the fourth attempt - ending a jinx that has dogged them for so long. "We cheer for your recovery".
Neymar is found his scoring touch for the Selecao but seems to have not got over his habit of play acting. But Soosai Raj disagrees and says, "Brazil is my favourite team, but France looks to be quite solid as team". Still, coach Zlatko Dalic will have considered what worked and what didn't in the first round of the knockout stages, too.
Conservatively, I'd bet we'll see Brazil and England in the World Cup Final.
