One of those heavily criticised was striker Romelu Lukaku, dropped for the last-16 match against the Americans at the Fonte Nova arena in Salvador, but whose entry at the start of extra time finally turned the tide Belgium's way.The Belgium coach said he suffered near heart failure as his side failed to take any of numerous chances in the 90 minutes, then scoring twice to seemingly settle the game before allowing the Americans back into the contest in a edge-of-the-seat finish.Belgium will face Argentina Saturday in Brasilia in the quarter-finals of the tournament.
