There will be five European teams in the semi-final of the World Cup for only the fifth time, after Brazil were dumped out by Belgium on Friday night.

Roberto Martinez’s came into the quarter-final tie as underdogs, but raced into a two-goal lead before the break.

Fernandinho’s own goal gave Belgium the lead, before Kevin De Bruyne finished off a counter-attack with a blistering strike.

Brazil pulled one back through Rene Augusto, but it was not enough to keep the five-time winners from exiting the tournament.

Belgium will take on France in the last four on July 10.
