Belgium beat Brazil to reach World Cup semi-finals


Neymar’s Brazil were sent crashing out of the 2018 World Cup after losing 2-1 to Belgium, who will face France in the semi-finals.

Roberto Martinez made one change to his side that defeated Japan as Maroune Fellaini was rewarded with a start, while Marcelo and Fernandinho replaced Felipe Luis and Casemiro.

Brazil threw everything forward in search of an equaliser in the closing stages, while Belgium withdrew Romelu Lukaku for Youri Tielemans.

However, Thibaut Courtois ensured Belgium walked away with the win as he produced a fine save to keep out Neymar’s curling effort in stoppage time as they march on to the final four.
