In one of the clashes more 'hot' of what goes of the Glass of the World, Belgium and Croatia confronted in research of the last square for the eighth of final of his group, after the 'miracle' of Morocco. The Belgian knew that they had to win yes or yes, but remained half in front of some very serious Croats that did not leave space for the uncertainty and are, again, in some eighth.
