"When you are in the World Cup it's about achieving your aim so it's not something to criticise; the opposite".

Twitter user Training Ground Guru shared a photo of the after-pic, writing, "This was Japan's dressing room after heart breaking injury-time defeat by Belgium".

"Yeah, I just want to go through the quarter-final, semi-final and maybe the final".

While Monday's World Cup action gave us a victory by favourites Brazil over Mexico, it also delivered some of the classiest gestures of the tournament by Japan.

Paul George agrees to max contract with Oklahoma City Thunder
This is a party that members of the Thunder front office will reportedly attend and - who knows - possibly George himself. This is definitely the biggest indication that the 28-year-old is likely to stay with the Thunder next season.

"I am also a lot stronger than four years ago in Brazil".

Under previous manager Marc Wilmots, Belgium fell at the quarter-final stage at the 2014 World Cup and they have real hopes of surpassing that performance this time round. Belgium are one of the only three teams to win all their three group stage matches.

"Most of us are between 25-33, so we have the same level of maturity". "We were leading and we were going to win, but I didn't expect this reversal of the result. We have good training sessions, and I'm sure we'll be ready tomorrow". "I think the group is more important than individuals". "We have played to our best, but the players have something more to offer", said coach Akira Nishino.

"The ones who played against England are desperate to contribute again and those who were rested want to get out on the pitch". To beat Brazil, you have to be 100 per cent, 120 per cent of your mental and physical capacity.
