Brazil, ranked second in the world, were the last remaining non-European team after Les Bleus knocked out Uruguay in Friday's first quarter-final.
But Tite's men, who badly missed the suspended Casemiro, were soundly beaten by third-ranked Belgium thanks to a pair of goals before the break at the Kazan Arena, despite the Selecao mounting a second-half fightback.
Fernandinho turned a corner into his own net to put Belgium in front, with a superb counter-attack extending their advantage. Here is how Kenyan fans reacted to the shock defeat that sent Neymar and Co. home.
Titte didn't do his homework, Martinez is a stubborn, detailed, game oriented manager. He drew up a plan that incapacitated Brazil's only play. He failed his team, they had no response to the PACE and POWER.— James Smart (@jamessmat) July 6, 2018
Good. Doesn’t feel so bad now after Germany’s exit. The other teams left in the tournament can all win, doesn’t change anything at the top, of the All-time World Cup winners list. Maybe now France and England should also exit then we have a first time winner! #BRABEL #Russia2018— Hussein Mohamed (@HusseinMohamedg) July 6, 2018

But why have all VAR decisions gone against Brazil in Russia? And that Serbian referee looks like he was on a mission.— Japheth Mutinda (@JaphMutinda) July 6, 2018
