- World Cup July 1
Belgium on Tuesday knocked the U.S. out of the World Cup with a 2-1 victory in their Group of 16 match. The Belgians dominated possession and peppered the U.S. goal, only to be denied time and again by goalkeeper Tim Howard, who amassed a staggering 16 saves. But the Red Devils broke the deadlock in overtime, scoring twice to kill the U.S.'s dreams of going to the quarterfinals.
Substitute Julian Green scored to pull one back for a nail-biting finish, but it turned out to be too little, too late.
Here is Belgium's second goal, from Romelu Lukaku:
