    Belgium 2-2 Japan

    There he is, Keisuke Honda ghosts in behind the Belgian defence and looks like hitting the target, until Vincent Kompany slides in and blocks...

  2. 'Japan still in this'

    Belgium 2-2 Japan

    Chris Sutton

    Ex-Chelsea striker on BBC Radio 5 live

    Japan will be shell shocked from those two Belgium goals, but they are still in this.

  3. Post update

    Belgium 2-2 Japan

    The hint of a lull in play, both sides have given so much in this second half. All credit to Belgium for that response to going 2-0 down, that shows huge mental resilience and togetherness. If they go on to win this tonight it could end up doing them the world of good.

    Belgium 2-2 Japan

    Japan send on their record World Cup scorer Keisuke Honda. Let's have another goal lads. It's been seven minutes...

    James: Fellaini is cheating, he's five times the size of all the Japanese players

    Kartik: Super sub strikes again! Jose is not that crazy you know.

    Gilbert: I really don't want to stay up late again for penalties. My heart can't take it

  7. Post update

    Belgium 2-2 Japan

    Belgium win a corner. This is where they look more than a handful. Vincent Kompany loops a header across and it's cleared. Japan now look in trouble back there...

  8. Did he mean this?

    Belgium 2-2 Japan

    You decide.

  9. If you don't shoot, you don't score

    Belgium 2-2 Japan

    All four shots on target in the second half have been scored.

  10. Post update

    Belgium 2-2 Japan

    It was the immediate response to falling behind.

    Belgium have had eight efforts on goal in the second half and this was pretty close...

    Japan look a threat every time they go forward. You just get a feeling there will be another goal in the 90 minutes.

  12. Post update

    Belgium 2-2 Japan

    What a half of knockout football. Nacer Chadli stands up a cross and Romelu Lukaku can't force it home.

  13. Post update

    Belgium 2-2 Japan

    It doesn't look like it's going to matter now but this was a big miss...

  14. 'Fellaini keeps his eyes on the ball'

    Belgium 2-2 Japan

    Martin Keown

    Former England defender in Russia

    It is an unbelievable cross from Hazard but Fellaini does the rest. He gets up high and keeps his eyes on the ball. Outstanding. He was magnificent against England and the manager made the change.

  15. 'Belgium showing real fight'

    Belgium 2-2 Japan

    Chris Sutton

    Ex-Chelsea striker on BBC Radio 5 live

    He is a defender's worst nightmare. Marouane Fellaini is brilliant in both boxes. It is a brilliant header and Belgium showing real fight to get back in this.

  16. Post update

    Belgium 2-2 Japan

    This is superb. End-to-end stuff. Here come Japan, into the area with Takashi Inui again but it's blocked and the loose ball then screws right across the face...

  18. GOAL - Marouane Fellaini

    Belgium 2-2 Japan

    That's what he does! He isn't pretty, but there's a reason why club and country continually turn to Marouane Fellaini in times of trouble.

    What a header too, Eden Hazard stands up a cross and the Manchester United man is hair and shoulders above everyone to plant a header down and in.

    Who's going to win this now?!

    Marouane Fellaini

    BtheG: I don't think it was intentional, but what a goal!

    Matt: Belgium back in it. Japan will need to defend for their dear lives now.

    Daz: Damn that Vertonghen, scored before I could get my "Belgium are getting Ja-panned" gag out there!
