  • Belgium celebrate against Japan

The game began with Belgium on the front foot - the likes of Nacer Chadli, Lukaku, Eden Hazard and De Bryune combined to put pressure on Brazil's backline, thus leaving the impression that Brazil will be unable to keep up with Martinez' side during the entire tie.

Belgium took the lead in the 13th minute with an own goal from Brazil which came of Fernandinho's arm.

That 3-2 victory over Japan was the first time a team has overcome a two-goal deficit to win outright since West Germany beat England in 1970, and the first to do it in regulation since Portugal came from three down to beat North Korea in 1966.

Brazil pulled one back when Philippe Coutinho's superb chip was cleverly headed home by substitute Augusto in the 76th minute, setting up a frantic finale.

It will be the first time since 2006 that four European teams will feature in the World Cup semifinals. Only a three-goal comeback in the last 15 minutes saw Roberto Martinez's side book their ticket for the last eight.

Belgium will continue its World Cup campaign on Tuesday when it meets France in the semis.

It was a Round of 16 fixture back in 2002 and the South American side ran out 2-0 winners.

Trump Asked Aides About Invading Venezuela Last Year
Even some of the staunchest U.S. allies were begrudgingly forced to side with Maduro in condemning Trump's saber rattling. Eventually, Mr McMaster pulled the president aside and walked him through the dangers of an invasion, the official said.

"It was a very impressive game between two teams with fantastic technical qualities", he said. If you aren't scheduling your entire life around World Cup, you'll be happy to know fuboTV provides access to all of the games for up to 72 hours after the original airing, allowing you to watch the games on your own schedule.

Brazil were almost back on level terms twice soon after, but Augusto fired his shot from just outside the area wide of goal before Coutinho skied a shot from Neymar's laid-off pass well over the bar. De Bruyne made no mistake as he lashed home a thunderous drive from distance.

"Randomness happened and it was cruel to us", Brazil coach Tite said.

Roared on by the vast majority of the crowd at the Kazan Arena, the Brazilians poured forward to try and save the game but Roberto Firmino, Augusto and Coutinho spurned gilt-edged opportunities to level the scores.

Brazil boss Tite defended Neymar after Brazil's elimination from the World Cup.

VAR came into play soon after the Neymar penalty shout when Kompany tripped up Jesus near the Belgium goalline, but after review the video assistant did not award a spot kick to Brazil.

Fernandinho will be replacing him in the starting Xi and that shows the amount of talent they have in the squad.
