Brazil are on their way home from the 2018 FIFA world cup in Russia

Title favorites and five time champions Brazil was dumped out of the 2018 FIFA world cup in Russia, after losing 2-1 to Belgium in Kazan arena on Friday..

Brazil who went into the game on the back of a big performance against Mexico, found themselves behind early in the first half after midfielder Fernandinho scored in his own net.

He could not prevent the ball coming off his hand and into the goal following a flick on header by Vincent Kompany from a Belgium corner.

The red devils increased their lead before the break when Kevin de Bruyne slammed home a ferocious effort.

Brazil pushed to remain in the game and was given a lifeline with 15 minutes remaining, when Renato Agusto headed home.

It turned out to be only a consolation, as Belgium remained resolute to the end to book a semifinal spot.

Earlier another South American country Uruguay was sent packing by France.

Les bluer won 2-0 with a brilliant header from defender Varane and a long range effort from Antoine Greizeman, which goalkeeper Muslera failed to hold and it spilled into his own net.

The last two semifinalists will be decided on Saturday, when England take on Sweden, before host Russia take on Croatia.
