Group H

Japan vs Belgium
The first goal, from Marc Wilmots, sparked this game into a frenzy and the action didn't stop. Japan threw everything forward in the closing minutes that Belgium hardly had a chance to catch their breath.

Tunisia vs Belgium
More was probably expected from Belgium, after they beat France in Paris.... but maybe that was the sign that France were falling rather than Belgium were rising.

Belgium vs Russia
At one time during this match Belgium were at risk of going out... but they fought back to qualify for the Second Round, behind Japan.
