How to Watch the 2018 World Cup Quarter Finals Online for Free, Including Brazil vs. Belgium
The quarter finals of the 2018 FIFA World Cup start Friday — and the games for that day include the highly anticipated match between Belgium and Brazil, following Belgium's last-minute comeback during their game with Japan.
Brazil remains a favorite to win the 2018 World Cup — the team has reached the quarter finals of the soccer tournament for the last seven years in a row and only lost twice at this stage. But Belgium is also a top contender. Both teams had three of their players make the short list for the 2017 Ballon d'Or, the annual award for individual excellence in soccer.
The last time these two teams met during the World Cup was in 2002, during round 16 when Brazil won 2-0. However, now, Brazil will have to face them without Carlos Casemiro, who plays a key part of the team's defense, because of his one-game suspension after two yellow cards earlier in the World Cup tournament. He will be replaced by Fernando Luiz Roza, known as Fernandinho, but Belgium will likely take advantage of the change in the Brazil's dynamic and give the five-time World Cup champions a run for their money.
The winners of each of the four games of World Cup quarter finals will go on to compete in semi-final round starting Tuesday, June 10.
