Livescore: Result of Belgium vs Japan

Romelu Lukaku celebrates with Eden Hazard after scoring against Tunisia

Belgium, who tied their 1986 record for most goals at a World Cup with 12, are the first team to come back from a two-goal deficit at any point in the match and win in regulation time of a knockout stage match since Portugal in 1966 against North Korea.

Fox Sports timed the counterattack at 9.9 seconds.

Takashi Inui doubled Japan's lead on 52 minutes, bending in a sumptuous strike beyond the despairing dive of Courtois.

The equalizer came only five minutes later, Marouane Fellaini, on as a substitute, towering over Japan's defense to head in an Eden Hazard cross.

Fellaini then headed in Hazard's cross to level before Chadli converted Thomas Meunier's pass to finish off a flowing move and help the Red Devils avoid being the latest victims of a World Cup of shocks. Coach Akira Nishino ordered his side to shut up shop and not give away any bookings in the hope that a 1-0 defeat would be enough to see them qualify.




Belgium very almost responded instantly, with Eden Hazard rocketing a shot off the post just after the reset.

But when Japan did get forward there were moments of danger for Belgium.

Lukaku, who was marked, left it for Chadli to tap home and cap Belgium's stunning win right before the final whistle.

With the last kick of the game, a sweeping counter-attack was finished off with Chadli at the far post as Belgium progress to face Brazil in the last eight on Friday at the Kazan Arena.

At the other end, Courtois saved Keisuke Honda's wickedly curling free shot which led to the winning goal. It was from the corner that Japan were punished and Belgium's golden generation lived to fight another day.
