Vincent Kompany headed home for Brazilian defender Fernandinho on 13 minutes.

Match coverage in the first half
Belgium is well in the lead now. Kevin De Bruyne's 22-meter laser beam in the 32nd minute brought the Red Devils 2-0 to Brazil. The equalizer came from a counterattack from a Brazilian corner. Belgium's defense cleared the cross and striker Romelu Lukaku took the ball off 45 yards from its own net. He fought the midfield and beat two Brazilian defenders before finding his pass De Bruyne, who went on a miracle strike. The result brings the Seleção early in the game.
As the game speeds up and becomes more disorganized, both sides have begun to rely on standards. The Red Devils scored in the 13th minute after a brilliant corner. Vincent Kompany headed a header to his compatriots in the six-yard box, but the ball hit Brazil's Fernandinho and hit him on the back.
Brazil get the first chance
Thiago Silva was stranded on the thigh after a corner by Neymar in the six-meter box and the ricochet surprised the Belgian keeper Thibaut Courtois. The efforts hit the post and bounced off wide, and Belgium countered with an offensive offensive.
The game has opened early. Both sides play with speed and push the ball over the entire length of the field. Twelve minutes after the game, seven shots hit the goal.
Launch Plots Announced
It is the best of South America against perhaps the best left of Europe for a place in the semifinals. Brazil sailed past Mexico and reached the quarter-finals, while Belgium knocked out Japan in stoppage time with a winning goal and was the first team to score at least two goals since 1970.
There is a lot of expectation in this round for both sides. Everyone has entered the title favorite tournament and nothing has changed so far. Brazil are the odds' favorites to win the championship, and Belgium are not far behind after scoring 12 goals, three more than any other team.

Belgium has been only once since 1986 – and not beyond.
Brazil have hopes for world-class striker Neymar, but Paulinho and Philippe Coutinho have teamed up for a brilliant offensive that boosts the body's defenses and strengthens the defenses Seleção's ownership-oriented game
Fighting for Belgium the Red Devils for a share of the ball that Brazil does not want to give up.

Players in Focus
For Belgium, all eyes are on the attack duo Eden Hazard and Romelu Lukaku. They scored six goals, but the Red Devils are more than just a scoring. They rely on Hazard to hold the ball and control the pace. Lukaku, meanwhile, draws defenders in the box and opens secondary scoring options; His decision to pass a dangerous pass scored Belgium's goal against Japan. Marouane Fellaini scored the decisive equalizer against Japan before that time. For Brazil, the answer is always Neymar . The global superstar is so integrated in Brazil's game that although he is a striker, he gets the ball almost anywhere on the pitch. As soon as he gives up the ball in the attacking half, he immediately seeks to get it back. It's hard to imagine Brazil advancing unless Neymar finds his way into the scoresheet.
