Do you think Brazil has lived up to their tag as 'favourites'

Warren Barrett (former Reggae Boyz captain)

If not at the start, certainly yesterday (Monday) they were outstanding in all departments, confident, precise and ruthless in finishing the chances they created.

Andrew Price (football coach and analyst)

Well, if France made a statement against Poland, then Brazil gave a great reminder why they should be considered as one of the favourites despite losing to Cameroon, albeit making nine changes. The miraculous return of Neymar has lifted the confidence of the Brazilian team. They looked fluent and positive.

Tanya Lee (athlete manager and head of LEEP Marketing)

The Brazilian attack has kicked into high gear with the return of Neymar, who the attack runs through. Brazil look most convincing with Neymar's return and should get the better of Croatia in the quarter-finals considering Croatia have not really created chances all tournament.

Damion Lowe (Reggae Boyz defender, CVM TV World Cup analyst)

Brazil are still favourites. The addition of Neymar is a big plus.
