Livescore: Result of Belgium vs Japan

Belgium's Eden Hazard celebrates after scoring his side's fourth goal during the group G match between Belgium and Tunisia at the 2018 soccer World Cup in the Spartak Stadium in Moscow Russia Saturday

Belgium secured their place in the quarter-finals of the 2018 FIFA World Cup with a dramatic 3-2 win over Japan on Monday at the Rostov Arena in Russian Federation.

Belgium have gone past the last 16 on two previous occasions, reaching the quarter-finals four years ago in Brazil and the semi-finals in 1986 when they were beaten by a Diego Maradona-inspired Argentina. In preparation of the match, I think I have to overcome him mentally.

Roberto Martinez brings back nearly all of his regular starters back.

The win puts Belgium into the quarterfinals, setting up a mouth-watering clash with Brazil in the last-eight. This time around, they'll surely be looking to seal a quarter-final berth in normal time.

Rival GM: LeBron James would 'let the roster come together' for Lakers
Keep in mind, the Lakers will also be able to add some veterans willing to sign for the minimum if James end up in Los Angeles. Many options for him are complicated, however, and it seems as if there's no ideal fit for him.

The Manchester United star is set to face Japan after missing the win over England with an ankle knock. "His stats speak for themselves".

The Japanese have endured stinging criticism in the aftermath of their final group game, when they ran the clock down in a 1-0 defeat to Poland, squeezing into the knockout rounds to advance at Senegal's expense by virtue of having picked up fewer yellow cards. Even their goalkeeper Eiji Kawashima now plays for Metz in France, and had previously featured for Lierse SK and Standard de Liege in the Belgian top-flight league.

Belgium came back from a 2-0 deficit in the World Cup on Monday by scoring three straight goals to beat Japan. Conversely, Japan is a favorite at -130 getting 1.5 goals.

As Akira Nishino announced, his side was not preparing specifically for a penalty shootout.

Argentina, Portugal eliminated from FIFA World Cup
The Barcelona star is heating up, scoring his first goal of the 2018 World Cup against Nigeria in his squad's last match. The loss meant that Messi has never been able to score in the knockout phase of a World Cup .

Attacking midfielders Genki Haraguchi, Shinji Kagawa and Takashi Inui will have important roles to play just behind striker Yuya Osako. The Japanese will target attacking through the wings where Gaku Shibasaki will play a vital role.

Japan got their tactics spot-on and deservedly took the lead after defending well, pressing Belgium and taking their chances when they came.

- Belgium scored more goals than any other team in this year's World Cup group stages (9).

So far, so good in Russian Federation. "Messi and Ronaldo are out, but there are still a lot of players like me who also want to go to the final too, so let's see", said Hazard. On that occasion, a lone Lukaku strike took Belgium home.

Sampaoli sure Argentina can find feet against France
Now, the Soccerbot has digested the film, crunched the numbers and broken down every single player on France and Argentina . Before you lock in your 2018 World Cup picks, you need to see what European football expert David Sumpter has to say.

Japan, somewhat naively, refused to be cowed down and were chasing a third right until injury time and it proved to be their undoing in the end as Courtois released Kevin De Bruyne after collecting a corner late in the tie.
