And now its 2-2. What a game this is.

Truly nail-biting.

Never thought I'd see the day I'm actually cheering for the Japs in a football match.

2018 is a truly strange world cup.

My god this is intense. Props to the Japanese keeper though. Belgium is putting intense pressure on Japan and their defence is breaking. This could be one hell of a finish. Japan certainly need a break. As for Extra Time (if Belgium don't snag a late winner), I'm not sure Japan will survive. Either way, I really hope the Japanese can bounce back and go on to win it! This is interesting.

Given that both Belgian goals benefitted from poor positioning... okay, understandable for the first, that one was ridiculous.

But the second one, I'm pretty sure some keepers would have saved.

Yeah but you can't ignore some of the brilliant saves he has made. It could very easily be Belgium in front if it wasn't for them.

Pretty epic finish. Free kick -> corner -> counter -> goal.

Anyone's game right up to the last second. Not in the sense of 'well, if they score', but in the sense of 'they have the opportunity right fucking now'.

After recent events, the player behind the nation of Tinhampton would like to express his desire for Neymar Jr. and his merry band of men to give Belgium a right royal pasting in the quarterfinals. Or for Mbappe or Suarez to do so in the semifinals. Or for Kane or Shaqiri or one of the underdogs to do so in the final.

If that doesn't happen, I suppose I'll have to get a new telly on the grounds that my previous model was accidentally damaged.

The Japanese team fought with such valour and honour...

the goalkeeper's determined life-and-death expression throughout the game as he jumped and blocked repeatedly...

in the end though, the power of Tin Tin was too much...

Nobody does.

The French bully them.

I will never forget Belgium's pay-to-use public bathrooms. This is my main gripe with them (although other European countries have such policies).

So they're disliked? I'm hoping on that bandwagon then, go Brazil or France/ Uruguay!

I'm praying for the Swiss to go out, I've hated Switzerland after that ski trip I went to... Long story short, I shat myself while skiing and I fell over, out of the area you are supposed to ski and landed face first into the snow.
