Belgium had gone 2-0 up through a Fernandinho own goal and a stunner by Kevin De Bruyne, though Renato Augusto then pulled one back for Brazil in the second period.

Neymar looked like pulling things level here before a world class save from Courtois, which shows why Real Madrid have been linked with him.

The Chelsea star has just a year left on his contract at Stamford Bridge and Don Balon have been among the sources linking Los Blancos with a serious interest.

Of course, everyone already knows the Belgian is one of the best ‘keepers in the world, but this stunning stop just confirms it as he shows his ability on the biggest stage and at the most crucial of moments.
