Full-time Belgium 3 – 2 Japan #WorldCup

Nacer Chadli

Final score: Belgium 3-2 Japan What a counter-attack that was. Courtois catches the corner and rolls the ball out to De Bruyne. He carries it to halfway and passes to Meunier, in all sorts of space on the right, and his low cross is excellently dummied by Lukaku, leaving Chadli with a tap-in.

What a second half that was. Absolutely brilliant. And played in a wonderful spirit. Japan made no attempt to kill the game at 2-0 up. There was no time-wasting, no Neymaresque histrionics. Perhaps they were punished for it, but the result was fabulously compelling.

No team has come from two goals down to win a World Cup knock-out tie since West Germany against England in 1970 (and they needed extra time).

Belgium has stolen it, with eight seconds of stoppage time remaining!
