Belgium are through to the 2018 FIFA World Cup quarter-finals

Belgium are through to the 2018 FIFA World Cup quarter-finals after coming from behind to beat Japan 3-2 in a thrilling Round of 16 tie at the Rostov Arena.

Following a goalless first half, it initially looked as though the Samurai Blue were going to pull off a huge upset as goals after the break from Genki Haraguchi and Takashi Inui put them 2-0 up.

But Belgium coach Roberto Martinez pulled off a masterstroke as substitutes Marouane Fellaini and Nacer Chadli both scored – the latter in the 94th minute – after Jan Vertonghen had pulled one back to help complete an amazing come-from-behind triumph.

The result means that the Belgians will now meet Brazil in a tantalising quarter-final clash, while the Round of 16 is once again the furthest Japan have reached.
