An underrated Belgium side defeated a much fancied Brazil 2-1 in the quarter final of FIFA WC 2018 at Kazan to send the South American giant packing. The tournament continued to be a nightmare for teams with big names and it was the turn of Brazil. Belgium took the lead against the run of play in the 13th minute, when Brazil’s Fernandinho turned a corner kick into his own post. The mistake proved fatal for Brazil as Kevin de Bruyne buried a long shot through a group of Brazilian defenders in the 31st minute to give a 2-0 lead to Belgium. It was looking like an easy win for Belgium but then the substitute Renato Augusto converted a header in the 76th minute to cut down the equation to 2-1. Brazil was running out of time and could not manage to get an equalizer that send Belgium to the semi finals of FIFA WC 2018. Twitter which has became a breeding ground of reactions throughout this world cup went berserk over Belgium’s win against Brazil. Here are the best reactions.
The power of “Trio”
Hazard, De Bruyne and Lukaku all stood up and were counted tonight. Emphasis on the term ‘stood up’. It’s what the best players do on big stages like this. All three were superb. #BRABEL
