The referee blows for the end of the second period of extra time.

FULL TIME: After a quite incredible finale to an entertaining game, the Belgians are through to the quarter-finals to face Argentina. De Bruyne and Lukaku scored after it ended goalless after 90 minutes, but the USA struck back through Green just after the interval of the extended period. A concerted spell of USA pressure saw Dempsey go close to levelling, but it's Marc Wilmots' side who advance. Another remarkable game at Brazil 2014!
