Brazil's shock exit after being beat 2-1 by Belgium last night saw thousands of fans turn to Twitter to gloat.

A video has emerged on Social media which seems to show Brazilian fans throwing stones in disgust at the bus that carried their national team after the team returned from the FIFA World Cup in Russian Federation.

The 2018 FIFA World Cup kicked off on June 14 and will continue until July 15, with the matches being played in 11 cities across Russian Federation.

England overcame Sweden 2-0 while Croatia needed penalties to beat hosts Russian Federation to join Belgium and France in the final four of the competition. Germany meanwhile, has handed a 2-0 defeat at the stadium on the final matchday of group play, which ended its title defense in the first round.

If the 26-year-old Brazilian did not set the World Cup alight, neither did he perform terribly.

The 1966 World Cup champions last reached the semifinals in 1990, losing the first of a series of haunting penalty shootouts. But we will be ready because we have an extremely good state of mind, and it is the semi-finals in the World Cup.

"We are very, very proud of the diversity we have in the squad", Martinez added.

Following Croatia's shootout win over Russia, Fox Sports soccer analyst Alexi Lalas suggested that Russia 2018 was the greatest World Cup ever.

However new PSG signing Buffon thinks failing to win the World Cup could act as extra motivation for Neymar in the coming campaign.

This World Cup also spelled the beginning of the end of the Messi and Cristiano Ronaldo era.

"He had only played about 10 matches and at that time I didn't know him", said De Bruyne.

Here, we take a look at the contenders.

Belgium are just the ninth team in World Cup history to win* five successive matches in a single World Cup tournament, though the feat has been achieved 11 times. On this occasion at least, Brazil could not overwhelm a team through the quality of its individuals, though it did come close.

"World Cups don't happen every day, you get to play in them perhaps two or three times in your life, if you're lucky".
