How Japan cleaned up at the World Cup

At the 2014 World Cup, Belgium reached the quarter-finals, losing to eventual runners-up Argentina, but Hazard was a pale shadow of his brilliant club self.

"'" feel angry not to go, we could have been there, but I want Belgium to be world champion for my friend Lukaku", Sanchez told Fox Sports. After being released by Milan in the summer of 2017, he joined Mexican giants Pachuca, and according to reports in Japan prior to the World Cup, he will not extend his one year contract that expires later this month. We talk about the team a lot to be able to improve it.

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. "Most of us are between 25-33, so we have the same level of maturity".

"When you play against Brazil, you need to accept they are the best team in the competition, you need to accept your role", said Martinez after beating the Japanese in the last 16.

It's pretty clear that Meghan Markle's effortlessly elegant style is already iconic, but it turns out, it might be award winning too.

But it's what they did next that really impressed many people across the globe: they left their locker room in utterly impeccable condition despite their heart-wrenching FIFA World Cup elimination, which was held in Russian Federation on Monday.

With so many presumptive title contenders now eliminated from the tournament, and other leading candidates not looking near as impressive as most expected them to, this could be ideal chance for Belgium to make a very deep run. "We will have to pay attention because they are used to causing teams problems in both boxes".

Two years ago, Belgium eased through their Euro 2016 group only to crash out of the tournament in a stunning 3-1 defeat to Wales. "We know what to do and what not to do, we are better off", insisted Hazard. "But we were also thinking that we could score goals to win".

"This is football. It is a bitter pill to swallow, but a result that we have to accept", Shinji Kagawa said.
