Neymar had a chance to equalise late in injury time but Thibaut Courtois produced a magnificent save to tip over the goalbound curling effort.

For the first time ever, the World Cup will feature a semi-final that does not include Germany, Argentina, or Brazil.

"It's a heavy, bitter feeling".

Southgate said that the dressing room was "like a scene from MAS*H" after going the distance in Moscow, where Dele Alli, Ashley Young and Kyle Walker were others that looked in discomfort.

Belgium coach Roberto Martinez acknowledged the gulf in World Cup pedigree between his side, who have never been further than the semi-finals, and Brazil.

Deschamps was impressed by the Paris Saint-Germain teenager, but he believes there is more to come.

Raphael Varane opened the scoring shortly before half-time from a set-piece, steering a header past a diving Fernando Muslera after Antoine Griezmann whipped the ball in.

Uruguay almost replied immediately, also from a set-piece, when Martin Caceres' header was saved low to his right by France goalkeeper Hugo Lloris.

Suarez, who scored two goals in the group stage, didn't get a single touch on the ball in France's penalty area for the entire match.

"Brazil have the best depth to their squad and have lots of options, and for that reason I think they will win it", he said. "On other occasions he saved us with incredible stops", Godin said.

Deschamps warned his players would need patience in their efforts to break down a stubborn Uruguay. England put six past Panama but generally you're not seeing teams being ripped apart.

However, the 71-year-old was left frustrated by some of the media coverage of his forward's injury and recovery, so therefore said he will not disclose his team.

With England looking to continue their assault towards the latter stages against Sweden and host nation Russian Federation taking on Croatia, the Soccer Saturday pundit has offered his views on how things will unfold.

"We want to enjoy our game".

"He doesn't know what we have to do to succeed in football".

Despite controlling 57% of possession and having a 26-8 edge in attempts at goal, Brazil's tournament ends in the quarter-finals for the third time in the last four World Cups.

They won their only World Cup in 1998 on home soil, and in 2006 lost to Italy on penalties.
