  Hell and heaven are sometimes only a few minutes apart.

  If it wasn't for the Croatian's quick counterattack in the 116th minute, the Brazilian, who dominated the field, would have entered the semi-finals of this World Cup.

At that time, Neymar and his teammates had smiles on their faces.

  It was this goal that dragged Brazil into a penalty shootout.

In the end, as Marquinhos' penalty shot came out, the collective "pigeon dance" of the Brazilians celebrating victory failed to be staged at the Education City Stadium after the game, and they felt the huge gap from heaven to hell.

  As the biggest favorite to win the title, the Brazilian team is aiming to win a record sixth World Cup title. With Neymar, Vinicius, Richarlison and many other famous players, the Brazilian team is considered to be "the strongest team in the past ten years." Brazil team".

In the previous group stage and 1/8 finals, the Brazilian team did not encounter too many difficulties and successfully entered the quarterfinals.

After scoring a goal, the players often danced a cheerful "pigeon dance", and even coach Tite couldn't help but join them.

  Before the quarter-finals, the outside world was almost overwhelmingly optimistic about Brazil.

Even Croatian journalists looked down on their team, "Our team is a bit old and has just gone through a penalty shootout. Physical fitness is not dominant, and the opponent is five-star Brazil after all..."

  In this game that was considered to have no suspense, the Brazilian team took the initiative on the field during the regular game time, Vinicius' sideways advancement, Neymar's organization and connection, and Richarlison's smart running in the penalty area, just like Brazil's samba is as smooth as flowing water, making the opponent's defense overwhelmed.

If it weren't for the Croatian goalkeeper Livakovic's brave performance, high catch and low block, and many times to resolve the danger, the Brazilian would have a chance to end the game early.

  Even in overtime, both Brazilian players and fans are still confident.

Neymar and Rodrigo were talking and laughing on the field. Some fans pointed at the reporter with two fingers, firmly believing that the team could win two consecutive cities within 30 minutes. "They just lacked some luck just now."

  In the 105th minute, Neymar's goal "arrived as scheduled", and the atmosphere of the Education City Stadium was instantly ignited. Brazilian fans, regardless of gender, young or old, danced the "pigeon dance" like a carnival celebration. .

  However, the joy only lasted for more than ten minutes, and the smiles of the Brazilians disappeared collectively.

Petkovic used a quick counterattack from the middle to equalize the score, and instantly silenced the Brazilian fans occupying "half the country" of the stadium. Some hugged their heads, some covered their mouths, and some bowed their heads in silence.

  The subsequent penalty shootout became a nightmare for the Brazilians.

The "Wall of Sighs" built by Livakovic is still powerful. The Brazilian team's first appearance by Real Madrid general Rodrigo's penalty was saved, which heralded a bad ending.

The Croatian made all four free throws. Marquinhos came on the stage in a desperate situation of 2:4 behind, but his shot hit the post and popped out. The Brazilian's World Cup trip to Qatar came to an abrupt end.

  From heaven to hell, this is a huge blow for the Brazilian players to bear.

Looking at the carnival opponents, most of the Brazilian players fell to the ground and cried together. No matter how the coaching staff tried to comfort them, they couldn't calm down.

  After a long time, Neymar got up slowly, his eyes were red, and he left the field lonely.

"I don't know if I want to continue playing for Brazil. I want to take this time to think about what I want. I'm not going to close the door to play for Brazil, but I'm not going to be 100 per cent. Said I'd be back," he said.

  A large number of Brazilian fans in the stands were still reluctant to leave, and they said goodbye to the Brazilian team with tears.

A female fan said: "The dreams of all Brazilians were shattered tonight. If we had persisted for a few more minutes, the result might have been completely different. However, there were no ifs in the game." (End)
