The competition between the two championship candidates soon took place openly with many tit-for-tat battles.

Belgian players shared joy after the opening goal thanks to luck.

Fernandinho and teammate Gabriel Jesus jumped up to clear the ball, but the ball hit his shoulder and went into the net, leaving goalkeeper Alisson helpless.

They pressed forward as if the match was winding down to the final minutes and that rush opened up immense space behind for Romelu Lukaku, Eden Hazard and Kevin De Bruyne.

Mr. Martinez wants to free De Bruyne from midfield disputes and take advantage of his tactical vision.

Not Lukaku, De Bruyne is the player playing in the center of Belgium’s three-man attack in this match.

Another unsung hero of Belgium who also made his mark in this match was goalkeeper Thibaut Courtois – who stopped Brazil’s efforts.

Coach Tite will certainly be questioned about his trust in Jesus and Willian – players who have played very poorly.

Courtois made the decisive save in extra time of the second half.

Roberto Firmino and Douglas Costa came on at the start of the second half and the presence of these two players clearly improved Brazil’s attack.

It wasn’t until coach Tite sent Renato Augusto onto the field that Brazil found a way into the opponent’s goal.

Three minutes after scoring, Augusto was faced with the opportunity to score again.

Although he did not score, Hazard helped Belgium maintain pressure in the Brazilian half.

This is the second time Belgium has reached the World Cup semi-finals.
