The 2018 World Cup in Russia continued its surprise series and the Brazilian team joined the big team which called the tournament early. The Belgian team ousted Brazil, the strongest candidate to win the title outside the tournament, winning 2-1 on Friday in the quarter-finals of the tournament to become the golden box of the European Championships after the last South American representatives of this version.
The Belgian team qualified for the Golden Box well deserved to meet the qualification for the final of the tournament with his French counterpart, who beat Uruguay 2-0 earlier in the day. The Belgian team ended the first half with a 2-0 win by Brazilian Ferenandino in the 13th minute and Kevin de Bruen in the 31st minute.
In the second half, Brazil responded with a goal by substitute Renato Augusto in the 76th minute, just three minutes after his arrival. Africa, Asia and CONCACAF (North, Central America, and the Caribbean) were the first and second round to remain Brazil and Uruguay from South America in the competition with six European teams.
With the Brazilians (samba dancers) and Uruguay (heavenly) coming out today, the current version has guaranteed a pure European gold box. In the other two Group B matches on Saturday, the Russian team will meet their Croatian counterpart and the English team will clash with his Swedish counterpart in two European matches.
Brazilian samba’s attempts to erase the humiliating exit from the 2014 World Cup in Brazil have failed after a heavy 7-1 defeat to Germany in the semi-finals of the tournament. The samba dancers received a new shock as the team’s attempts to win the sixth world title failed and the team wasted a golden opportunity to regain the world throne.
With the samba dancers out today, only two teams have already won the title – the French national team crowned at home in 1998, who have already qualified for the gold box today and the England team crowned home in 1966 and who are waiting for their fate in the tournament. Tomorrow against Sweden.
It was the second time in history that the Belgian team qualified for the Golden Box in the tournament, where it was the only previous time when he finished fourth in the 1986 edition in Mexico.
