Later on Friday, Belgium powered into a dominant first-half advantage over Brazil before holding out to best the favourites 2-1 in Kazan - a result that meant all six teams remaining in contention are from Europe. Also, Brazil is still one of the most popular teams, everybody wants to attend a Brazil game.

"We're in a World Cup semi-final - whether we're in the top four in the world is something we would still have to prove, I think", he said.

"We are in this position because guys that are in the squad like (Gary) Cahill, (Phil) Jones, (Danny) Welbeck, (Nick) Pope, (Jack) Butland, (Danny) Rose, the older ones, have been exceptional in their mentality, their attitude to support the team, to train every day".

"President Putin called me before the (last-16) game with the Spanish and after", said Cherchesov, who masterminded a win against Spain on penalties in the last 16.

Belgium will go on to play France in the semi-final, with the victor going on to meet one of Sweden, England, Croatia or Russian Federation.

"Very happy to be part of this team, I am proud of all, interrupted our dream but they did not get out of our head and neither of our hearts".
