A great advert for soccer here, Belgium had the better chances, but the USA were always dangerous while Howard was keeping them in the game.
02 Jul 00:35
Despite the loss, Tim Howard has to man-of-the-match here, constantly kept the USA in the game.
02 Jul 00:32
Belgium hold on to beat the USA 2-1 after extra time!
02 Jul 00:31
One last minute to play.
02 Jul 00:31
Green puts a cross into the box from the left, but it comes to nothing.
02 Jul 00:29
Momentum with the USA, while the Belgians look very nervy.
02 Jul 00:28
Yedlin puts a dangerous ball into the box from the right, but no teammate can get onto the end of it. Great cross, but nobody seemed to be expecting it, poor that.
02 Jul 00:27
So close for the USA...
02 Jul 00:26
Looking at a replay of that Dempsey effort, had his first touch not been heavy, he may have scored.
02 Jul 00:25
What a brilliant game this has been. Still 6 minutes left.
02 Jul 00:24
24' CHANCE! Brilliantly worked free kick by the USA as the ball is teed up for Dempsey in the area, but Courtois keeps out his shot.
02 Jul 00:24
23' Free kick for the USA in a decent position, 30-odd yards out. Chadli with the foul.
02 Jul 00:22
ET 21' Chadli on for Hazard for Belgium.
02 Jul 00:21
ET 21' Lukaku outmuscles two defenders and sets up a one-on-one with Howard, who again makes a brilliant save.
02 Jul 00:20
Green's goal to set up a fantastic finish...
02 Jul 00:19
ET 18' CHANCE! The ball falls to Jones in the area, and his prodded volley goes narrowly wide. Courtois was beaten.
02 Jul 00:18
The USA right back in it, and it will be a tough last 13 or so minutes.
02 Jul 00:18
Bradley puts in a ball over the top, and Green's volley - miscued it seems - beats Courtois!
02 Jul 00:17
GOAL USA!
02 Jul 00:16
Ref wastes no time getting the second half of extra time started.
02 Jul 00:15
2-0 to Belgium, all to do for the USA.
02 Jul 00:15
The Lukaku goal...
02 Jul 00:14
Green coming on for the USA, Bedoya off.
02 Jul 00:13
ET 15 + 2'
02 Jul 00:13
Belgium have found second wind here, and the USA players are out on their feet.
02 Jul 00:13
De Bruyne finds space on the left edge of the area and puts a good ball in to Lukaku whose brilliant first-time left-footed effort beats Howard at his near post.
02 Jul 00:12
GOAL BELGIUM!
02 Jul 00:11
14' Hazard works the ball into the feet of Mirallas, but his low shot is smothered by Howard.
02 Jul 00:10
The USA put together a decent move as the ball makes its way out to Beasley, but nhis decent left wing cross is blocked by Alderweireld.
02 Jul 00:08
ET 11' Lukaku forces Howard into another good stop. Has a point to prove here.
02 Jul 00:07
ET 10' Jones on the deck for the USA  after a good spell of pressure.
02 Jul 00:05
Inspired change by Lukaku, wreaking havoc amidst this clearly fatigued USA defence. Will do his confidence a world of good.
02 Jul 00:04
De Bruyne feeds it into Lukaku in the area and his first time effort is well stopped by Howard.
02 Jul 00:03
ET 6' More good work from Lukaku to feed the ball to Vertonghen, but the defender takes too long and his poor right-footed effort is blocked. Should have passed.
02 Jul 00:02
Howard finally beaten!
02 Jul 00:01
Great finish from De Bruyne, and a well-deserved Belgium goal.
02 Jul 00:00
A slip from a defender set Lukaku free, hism pass was poor, but De Bruyne does brilliantly to work a shooting chance from a tight angle, and fires past Howard!
01 Jul 23:59
GOAL BELGIUM!
01 Jul 23:59
Here's that sitter late on...
01 Jul 23:58
ET 1' Lukaku on for the impressive Origi.
01 Jul 23:57
And we're off again!
01 Jul 23:52
And regulation time ends goalless, we're on to extra-time!
01 Jul 23:52
Coutois did well to make himself "big", but that was a sitter.
