Belgium earn arguably their biggest-ever win, dump Brazil out of World Cup

By QLSports

Belgium reached only their second-ever World Cup semifinals after beating Brazil 2-1 in a dramatic, entertaining tie. They will face France in the semifinal. 

The Belgians ended Brazil’s dream of a sixth World Cup title after steadily defending their early two goal lead. 

Brazil dominated the opening stages, with Thiago Silva hitting the post, but went behind when midfielder Fernandinho put the ball into his own net from a corner in the 13th minute.

Belgium took advantage of some wide open spaces in the Brazil defence when Romelu Lukaku found an unmarked Kevin de Bruyne who fired home their second goal in the 31st.

Brazil threw everything at Belgium in the second half and finally found a way past goalkeeper Thibaut Courtois with a Renato Augusto header in the 76th. But despite laying siege to the Belgian goal, they could not find an equaliser.
