Ronaldo's comments came as fans and pundits, many of them Brazilians, hit out at what they saw as play-acting by English players in their shootout win over Colombia.

On seeding, defending champions Germany would have expected to be in Samara on Saturday but they finished bottom of Group F in Russian Federation, an ignominious exit that would have come sooner had Sweden held out for a few seconds more to draw their clash in Sochi.

The team appears to believe, and the fans are now starting to believe as well so this may be the ideal time for the Three Lions to further impress in the World Cup.
