Belgium knock out Brazil to reach World Cup semi-finals

Belgium have beaten Brazil and will play France for a spot in the World Cup final.


Roberto Martinez’s side secured passage to the semi-final after beating the five-time World Cup winners 2-1 thanks to a Fernandinho own-goal, then a stunning strike from Kevin De Bruyne.


The Red Devils were able to see things through for just a second-ever appearance in the semis, despite being made to hold on in the final 15 minutes following a consolation header from Renato Augusto.


Both managers made a couple of changes to their starting lineups, with Marouane Fellaini and Nacer Chadli – key players in the 3-2 comeback win over Japan in the last round – both coming in for Belgium.


Fernandinho was one of the two Brazil players brought into the side, meanwhile, along with fit-again Marcelo, and it was the Manchester City midfielder who gifted the opposition a 13th-minute lead.


Belgium will now face France in an all-Europe semifinal.
