Russia: Fellaini ‘incredible,’ Neymar ‘not the dominating figure’ — Schmeichel on Brazil-Belgium clash

Former Denmark and Manchester United goalkeeper Peter Schmeichel, speaking in Sochi shortly after Belgium’s victory over Brazil on Friday, gave his insight into what had determined the outcome of the showdown. Schmeichel appeared to be not surprised that Belgium came out on top noting that it is a “proper football team,” which kept up a high-quality game throughout the match. “It is well... Еще-constructed, well-setup team,” he added. Besides that, he noted, that the Belgian team could also boast of “individual players” who were able to change the pace of the game. Schmeichel went on to laud midfielder Marouane Fellaini saying he “was incredible.” “He’s big, awkward, he can run, a lot of people, they look at Fellaini and they see something different or someone they can’t believe that he’s like that, but technically he’s very good,” said the goalkeeper. Speaking about Brazil’s unfortunate performance, he noted that “Brazil played better today than I’ve seen them in the whole tournament, but ironically they go out on that performance.” From Schmeichel’s perspective, the team failed to recover after an own goal. The Danish goalkeeper also pointed to Neymar’s lack of impact in the game saying “he was not the dominating figure in this team tonight.”
