We’ve made it down to the final eight at the 2018 FIFA World Cup, and while there are certainly some teams that have a better chance of winning the trophy than others, this year’s tournament has proven that nothing is impossible. Every single nation to have reached the quarter-finals deserves to be here, and tomorrow, we could see one of the games of the year when Brazil face Belgium to see which one of the two juggernauts will progress to the semi-final stage.

In one of the most interesting last 16 games of World Cup 2018, Brazil and Mexico clash on Monday night, as the pre-tournament favourites look to seal their spot in the competitions quarter-finals.


Brazil started the tournament as favourites to lift the trophy and the Selecao remain the most fancied team to win World Cup 2018. Tite’s highly talented team are now 14 games unbeaten, having beaten Costa Rica and Serbia while drawing with Switzerland in the group stages.

Prediction: Both teams to score.

Best odds: 5/6

Bookmakers: Ladbrokes and Coral.

As the group stage of the 2018 World Cup slowly draws to its close, group E is set to be resolved on Wednesday evening. At the moment, Brazil and Switzerland seem like the two teams most likely to progress. Costa Rica lost their two games so far and even if they beat Switzerland in the third and final round they cannot progress further. Serbia, however, still stand a chance but in order to qualify for the round of 16, they will have to perform a small miracle and win their game against Brazil.

On Friday afternoon, one of the World Cup favourites Brazil faces Costa Rica in their second Group E game, as the Selecao look to get back to winning ways in Russia. Their opponents cannot afford defeat or could face an exit from the competition.


Brazil dazzled in the early stages of their opener against Switzerland. However, the Selecao dropped the pace and the game ended 1-1 after a highly disciplined performance from the European side.

The 2018 FIFA World Cup has already thrown up a series of shocking moments and great goals, and we’re only just getting started. Over the next few days or so every single team in the tournament will play their first game in Russia, with one of the more notable encounters being Brazil vs Switzerland. The five-time world champions are expected to ease their way through this group and into the knockout stages, whereas the Swiss are being tipped to follow the South Americans through to the Round of 16.

Alexis Sanchez helps Chile defeat Brazil 0

Posted on October 09, 2015 by David Nugent

Arsenal forward Alexis Sanchez scored a last-gasp effort for Chile as they defeated Brazil 2-0 on Thursday night in World Cup qualifying. The former-Barcelona star went into the international break carrying a knock, but Gunners fans will be breathing a sigh of relief that Sanchez came through the game unscathed.

Sanchez has hit form in recent weeks scoring six goals in his last three games in all competitions for the north London club, after failing to find his best form in the opening games of the season.

Much of that lack of form was put down to his involvement with his nation side at the summer’s Copa America.

Arsenal winger Wellington Silva is finally allowed to play for the Gunners, after the 22-year-old was given a new Spanish passport following his time away on loan. It’s been four long years that Wellington has been waiting to be eligible for Arsenal, and supporters are looking forward to seeing what he can do.

“The good thing is slow in coming, but arrives with the greatest satisfaction in the world,” he said, via his Twitter account, with his Spanish passport pictured.

Gabriel Paulista called up to the Brazilian national team 0

Posted on March 24, 2015 by Crippy Cooke

Arsenal defender Gabriel was recently called up for the Brazilian national team ahead of their clash against France and Chile at the Emirates Stadium, and expressed his delight to have finally been given a chance to impress for his country.

“I am very happy with the news, and it is a dream for any player to wear the shirt of your country. I’ll play the best possible way. It is a valuable opportunity and I hope that is the first call of many. It will be an incentive for me to continue working hard at Arsenal. It will not be easy, because the Brazilian team has great quality, but I will work hard to get my place in the team,” he said.

Arsenal checking on Brazilian defensive midfielder 0

Posted on August 25, 2014 by David Nugent

According to the Daily Mirror, Wolfsburg defensive midfielder Luiz Gustavo is the latest in a long line of defensive midfielders that Arsenal are believed to be interest in. The Mirror claims that Arsene Wenger sent scouts to watch the former-Bayern Munich player in action for the Wolves in their 2-1 defeat at his former-club.


The Gunners again looked vulnerable at Everton in the 2-2 draw, especially to the counter-attack which also proved so effective for the Toffees last season against the Gunners. I have no doubt that a solid defensive midfielder would make Arsenal a stronger unit in games like Saturday’s.

David Ospina could prove a bargain buy for Arsenal 0

Posted on July 21, 2014 by David Nugent

According to Sky Sports, Arsenal is close to completing a £3million deal to sign Colombia number one David Ospina. The 25-year-old was already a highly-rated keeper prior to the World Cup, but his performances in Brazil have raised his profile even further.

Ospina looked very solid as the South American’s reached the quarter-finals of the competition and were unlucky to exit the competition at the hands of the hosts Brazil.


Ospina has forged a big reputation in Ligue One with Nice, where he has become known as a very reliable keeper. Ospina has helped Nice to become a stable team in the French top-flight. Ospina has spent five years at the French club developing his talent.
