Belgium 3-2 Japan, a match that brought FIFA world cup to life

With the exit of Spain, Argentina, Portugal, and Germany from the FIFA World Cup 2018, it seemed like big teams have taken it too light to compete against uncomplicated teams. 

This is world cup and anything can happen here. Spain lost to Russia as FIFA World cup saw another big upset but Belgium had their game plan prepared if anything odd happen. 

Japan scored two quick goal to throw Belgium out of the World Cup but Belgium being 2-0 down did not give up and hold on strong. 

Haraguchi scored the first goal of the match and led Japan 1-0 in the 48th minute of the game but there were hungry for more. Japan's striker Inui turned the defender left and right as he shot the ball hard from 40 yards to beat Courtois. 

It was not easy but Belgium has their plan sorted and this is a quality of the big team who knows how to win matches under pressure.  

Belgium got their first goal with an amazing and outclassed header of Vertonghen in the 69th minute. It did not take Belgium's substitute too long to score the equalizer as Fellaini scored the second goal in the 74th minute. 

Belgium benefited from Japan's corner when Courtois passed the ball to Kevin De Bruyne who ran with it all the way and passed it to Meunier while Japan's defenders get back but could not stop Chadli from scoring in the last seconds of the game. 

Belgium has qualified for quarter finals and will face Brazil on Friday.
