Belgium Win In Amazing Comeback That Will Be A World Cup Classic

Eden Hazard of Belgium during the 2018 FIFA World Cup Russia group G match between England and Belgium

The race to reach the quarterfinals of FIFA World Cup 2018 is on and Belgium is set to play against Japan today.

But they came back with goals from Jan Vertonghen, Marouane Fellaini and Nacer Chadli.

Fellow sub Chadli grabbed a dramatic victor deep into stoppage time in the 94th minute finishing off a devastating counter-attack to break Japanese hearts.

The European side enjoyed more possession and attacking opportunities in the first half.

Pepe rose from a corner to nod Portugal level after the break, but just seven minutes later Cavani scored again to settle the tie. Ronaldo ran in front of Pepe and drew the attention of both Gimenez and Godin.

Tied at 2-2 in stoppage time, Belgium stopped a corner kick from Japan in the 94th minute, with keeper Thibaut Courtois rolling the ball out to midfielder Kevin De Bruyne, who began the counter-attack.

Belgium goalkeeper Thibaut Courtois almost bobbled the ball into his own net just before half-time after a tame shot trickled right to him, but he managed to smother it before any Japanese players could react.

Japan stunned Belgium early in the second half, scoring twice in the space of five minutes to put themselves on the brink of another famous upset at this World Cup.

Unfortunately for Japan, the lead would prove short-lived.

South Korea unfortunately were knocked out despite recording one of the biggest shocks in tournament history. Unfortunately they are injured.

West Germany did rally after trailing England 2-0 in 1970, but required extra-time to knock out the Three Lions.

Vertonghen was guilty of some sloppy defending for Japan's opener, and he was a little fortunate to pull one back with a header that looped over goalkeeper Eiji Kawashima.

Then Belgium drew level when Hazard's pin-point ball found Fellaini in the middle and the Manchester United midfielder unleashed an unstoppable header on 74 minutes.

Belgium's winning goal came on a counterattack launched in injury time.
