Romelu Lukaku and Kevin De Bruyne scored in extra time Tuesday to give Belgium a 2-1 win over the United States and a spot in the World Cup quarterfinals.
 
De Bruyne gave an attacking Belgium the lead in the 93rd minute, finally getting a shot past U.S. goalkeeper Tim Howard. Lukaku made it 2-0 in the 105th.
 
Julian Green then pulled one back for the Americans in the 107th minute, but the Americans couldn't muster another to send the match to a penalty shootout.
 
The game was briefly delayed when a man ran onto the field in the 16th minute and had to be escorted off.

Belgium has not reached the quarterfinals since 1986.

Belgium will play Argentina in the quarterfinals on Saturday in Brasilia.  (AP)
