Belgium Just Won Its World Cup Game In Ridiculous Fashion

belgium tops japan at the world cup

The game of the World Cup just happened. Belgium and Japan played as entertaining a match as possible, basically. And Belgium is moving on.

Belgium, which trailed, 2-0, in the second half of this afternoon's Round of 16 contest, rallied with a flurry of goals in the final 20 minutes.

The country is moving into the Round of 8 thanks to three goals in the final 20 minutes, including a goal in the final minute of stoppage time.

It. Was. Absurd.

Watch the finish below:

It's tough to imagine a World Cup game finishing in more-exciting fashion than that. Congrats to Belgium. Japan deserves a lot of credit for its performance, too. They played extremely hard until the end.

Belgium is moving onto the Round of 8, where it'll play Brazil. That one should be incredible.
