Belgium is the leading scorer of the World Cup and faces Asia's last remaining representative at the final match hosted at Rostov Arena.

"I feel angry not to go, we could have been there, but I want Belgium to be world champion for my friend Lukaku".

'That is one of the reasons I am backing them to do so well at this tournament, and with Romelu in this sort of form, they definitely have a chance'.

"We'll see tomorrow", Hazard said on Sunday, when asked if the long break would disrupt the players.

Under previous manager Marc Wilmots, Belgium fell at the quarter-final stage at the 2014 World Cup and they have real hopes of surpassing that performance this time round. It's in our hands.

Federer stuns by appearing in Uniqlo instead of Nike
Forbes recently ranked him as raking in around $105 million previous year alone in endorsements and prize money. Roger Federer made his rumored divorce from Nike official by taking the court at Wimbledon in Uniqlo apparel.

I have heard Romelu say his determination to win is the most important thing he has learned from me, and I think it is a big part of him as a player. And then came Januzaj's move to wrong-foot England defender Danny Rose and curl in his shot to give Belgium a ideal 3-0 record in group play that earned him praise from Henry.

The 27-year-old Hazard perfectly embodies this, and he knows it. Hazard expressed the belief of many football observers and pundits- this could be the tournament where the Belgians finally truly realize their potential. Brazil was in similar position four years ago when it hosted the World Cup but was humiliated 7-1 by eventual victor Germany in the semifinals.

"Personally, I like to play, and sometimes when I stop I'm not as good in the following match". Knockout matches have a lot to do with experience, even when you have good talents.

"We have the same level of maturity across the team, which will make a difference this time".

Chile gave us a shock win over Spain and an entertaining last 16 loss to Brazil on penalties that they came close to winning.

"A few years later, the boy was with us, sitting next to me in the Chelsea dressing room. Japan are a different team to Wales, we'll learn the lessons". "If we think it's going to be easy tomorrow, we may lose".
