Belgium's Benteke fires social media barb at Brazil
Christian Benteke kicked off the mind-games ahead of Belgium's blockbuster World Cup quarter-final against Brazil.
Belgium had to come from two goals down to beat Japan 3-2 in Rostov-on-Don and will now face Brazil after a stunning comeback.
Five-time champions Brazil are widely tipped as favourites to win a sixth crown and Benteke is already cranking up the pressure on Neymar and his team.
Despite being left out of the Belgium squad after a poor Premier League season with Crystal Palace, Benteke saw the chance to poke fun at Brazil by using snaps of former Liverpool team-mate Philippe Coutinho.
Whether or not his social media antics come back to bite him later, with Belgium facing Brazil on Friday in Kazan, remains to be seen.
