The final whistle sounds.

FULL TIME: Belgium are through to the Round of 16 after an attritional affair in Rio de Janeiro. The Red Devils always looked most likely to create clear-cut opportunities and it was Eden Hazard who found the required touch of magic just two minutes from time. His mazy run down the Belgian left teed up Divock Origi, who became the youngest Belgian World Cup scorer and the seventh-youngest in the tournament's history with his late winner. Russia are still in the competition, but their chances of progressing are slim at best.
