Belgium have qualified
Korea have to win AND hope that Algeria don't beat Russia AND need a goal difference swing in their favour

I think Belgium need a team to come at them for us to see the best of them. Hopefully South Korea will continue to abandon the quick passing game they began the tournament with, and sling that tall bloke up front again and play percentages. Could make for a very open game.

Belgium vs USA will be a good 2nd round game, with the Belgians favourites I guess.

Who is their last 8 probable opponent?

Tasty start ... like the look of this ... Koreans attacking, Belgian fringe players getting a game ...

Dull stuff now as Belgium pass it around in front of a Brazilian/Korean/Belgian Mexican wave. South Korea attack, but not enough quality yet

Good chance for Mertens but over the bar. If Belgium do score, they might win by a few

The ref has done well in the face of diving South Koreans looking for a penalty, and screeching Belgians behaving like their leg is broken after a robust but fair challenge.

You sound like our manager, when in charge of Stoke.

That tickles me.

I need Belgium to win for a nice accumulator to come in. Got a feeling its not going to happen.

wish the Koreans wold stop playing the man and for their sake the keeper needs to catch the ball occasionally

Louis

Watching the game with 2000+ Belgians in Antwerp...
Loudest cheer was for the Korean yellow card in the 1st half...
And they have all been given those gayer clappy things.
It's like being at the Amex except the beer is better

Was that goal offside? Watched the highlight but they showed 14 different angles and not the relevant one.

Koreans weren't worth watching this tournament. Normally play a really high tempo style but thought they were very subdued over there 3 games.
Glad there out tbh.

I only saw the first half but I thought he did well in those 45 + minutes. Kept strong for two blatant South Korean dives in the box, and tried to keep the game flowing, though it was littered with sly little trips and pulls.

I looked him up afterwards and discovered that he's an Australian PE teacher. No wonder he ignored the South Korean penalty protests. Soft Sheilas compared to the thumps in Australian Rules & an ingrained casual racist attitude against yellow skin.
