Overall Game Assessment
Wow! What a game from Belgium! They came out strong and kept the pressure on Brazil right from the beginning! A little bit of luck does not hurt on their first corner kick goal that was counted as an own goal. but they played really well to take a commanding lead. They are so dangerous in the counter-attack as evidenced by De Bryune's goal! Courtois had the best game of his tournament today and his ridiculous save at the end sealed the win for Belgium. Stella Artois for everyone!!!!!

They sat back a bit after the 2 goal lead and relied on the counterattack, but they showed their firepower!

Defense Comments
Great game and a difficult task, but Belgium's defense played well. They closed quickly when Brazil got their chances and played a physical game to not give them easy looks. Courtois was awesome in net - his best game of the tournament!
