At a World Cup rocked repeatedly by the fall of giants, Brazil and Belgium have managed to hold firm in the maelstrom and will meet in a blockbuster quarter-final in Kazan Friday.Against Brazil, however, Belgium's formidable attack featuring captain Eden Hazard and Romelu Lukaku may be hard pressed to break down a stingy defence which has conceded one goal in their four matches at the tournament, and a total of six from their past 25 .Their win over Mexico showed textbook defending from the central pairing of Thiago Silva and Miranda, assisted by full backs Fagner and Filipe Luis.At the other end, Brazil's attack has clicked after a disappointing start to the tournament, and even Neymar's much-criticised histrionics could not completely overshadow a dominant performance against Mexico.
