Belgium's knack for a late goal in the 2014 FIFA World Cup continued as Kevin De Bruyne and substitute Romelu Lukaku scored in extra time to see off a stubborn United States.

These teams last met on the very first day of FIFA World Cup football on 13 July 1930 when the US won 3-0, but Belgium had the better of this 90 minutes, making Tim Howard produce 15 saves. De Bruyne eventually put the Red Devils' 32nd shot past Howard before Lukaku made it two and although Julian Green reduced arrears, Marc Wilmots's side will face 1986 semi-final nemeses Argentina in the Brasilia quarter-final on Saturday.
