Belgium’s top goalscorer Romelu Lukaku reacted on the fans who are making fun of Neymar by calling him an “actor”, “No! For me, he is not an actor he is a player. Even the players who play against him are tough. I think in future, he will be the best player in the world and I’m pleased that I’ll be going to play against him for the second time.”
Lukaku accepts the fact that Belgium are considered underdogs in front of Five-time World Champions Brazil, and he praised his team’s efforts and their training, “I think we are playing with a lot of pressure even if we are seen under pressure. I think we will have to savour the game and do as much as we can for our country.”
Lukaku on Brazil
According to Romelu Lukaku, Brazil has no weakness, and they are as strong as their contender. Brazil are entirely prepared, their Defender Marcelo is back in the team, claimed by coach Tite. Before that Marcelo was suffering from a back problem, but now he is ready to take his place back from Felipe Luis. “I talked to both (Marcelo and Luis). Luis played good in those matches, but in Quarter-final Marcelo is coming back,” Coach also noted that in place of suspended Casimero they are planning to take Manchester city’s midfield star Fernandinho. Coach also shared his opinion on the opponents (Belgium) he said Belgium is not just about Lukaku, they are a solid and attacking team they have high quality-skilful players, but Brazil’s defence is ready to neutralize the attack from the very first minute of the match.
