Number 15: “Nacer Chadli fires Belgium to the World Cup quarter-finals.”
Match: Belgium 3 – 2 Japan | Date: 2nd July 2018 | Competition: World Cup Round of 16
In my opinion, there’s nothing greater in football than a comeback story. The hunger from the players, the desperation from the fans, and the idea of clinging on to hope always produces a memorable spectacle.
On a warm Monday night in Rostov, Belgium completed their own comeback story for the ages thanks to one final counter-attack and one particular strike from the then 28-year-old Nacer Chadli.
