The Red Devils gave a commanding display as they dumped the five-time world champions out of the global tournament

Belgium outclassed Brazil 2-1 to secure a spot in the semi-finals of the 2018 Fifa World Cup.

Fernandinho's own goal and Kevin De Bruyne's stunner gave Roberto Martinez's side a first-half advantage before Renato Augusto reduced the deficit for the Selecao.

Brazil's loss means they are the last South American team to kiss the World Cup goodbye, leaving only European nations in the running to win the prestigious prize in Russia. 

However, Friday's performance at Kazan Arena has stimulated Nigerians to shower praise on Belgium as they aim for their first World Cup trophy.
