Belgium goalkeeper Thibaut Courtois came up clutch in the quarterfinals on Friday to keep his team's run going.

With Belgium ahead 2-1 in the 93rd minute of stoppage time, Brazil's Neymar tried to tie the score with a curling blast from the edge of the box. As he bent the ball toward the upper right-hand corner of the net, Courtois acrobatically got to it, tipping it to safety and keeping Belgium in the lead.

Belgium went on to win the match by that 2-1 scoreline and eliminate Brazil from the World Cup.

Belgium will play France in the semifinals on Tuesday in St. Petersburg, vying for what would be its first final appearance ever.
