"The difference is we haven't won a World Cup, it's as simple as that. you go into a tournament when you don't have the know-how to win the tournament", Martinez said. His knowledge of his club mate could prove hugely beneficial as Tite looks to starve Belgium's formidable attack of supply. Brazil and Belgium certainly belong to that standard.

Although Martinez says "power" will be vital against Brazil, he would be wise to remember that he also has one of the world's most decisive midfielders at his disposal.
Brazil coach Tite dismissed talk that his team is the favourite to win the match against Belgium, let alone the World Cup.
Despite scoring nine times in wins over Panama (3-0), Tunisia (5-2) and England (1-0) before the Japan game, Belgium will have to lift their game significantly to beat a well-drilled Brazil side increasingly dancing to the tune of star forward Neymar.
