Another of the remaining champions gave its farewell to the World Cup when seemed that order was taking over chaos.After the defeat of Uruguay in the morning, Brazil lostas well. The only twoteams that were representingAmerica in Russian territory were eliminated.

Two scores in the first half were enough to shock the men under Tite´s command. The first was Fernandinho´s, who jeopardized his own goal after a corner kick at the 13’ minute.Kevin de Bruyne made the difference wider after an excellent shoot from the limits of the goal area at 31’.From that moment on the Red Devils decided to strengthen the defense, a tactic that worked out despite the goal scored by Renato Augusto at 76’.

In the morning, the Uruguayan team gave its biggest effort on the NizhniNóvgorod Stadium´s field but, they could not affect a strong French team that isbeing the most solid team of the tournament.The goals scored by Raphael Varane and Antoine Griezmann —who had the “help” of goalkeeper Fernando Muslera—, sunk the Uruguayan ship. The absence of Cavani on the fieldhindered the goal occasions. The Americans had no chances against Europe Sub-champion.

Today, at the end of the quarter finals, Sweden and England will battle and, in the afternoon will be Russia and Croatia turn´s to define their fates.
