Belgium v Japan – World Cup 2018 – Live TV Coverage on BBC One, BBC iPlayer

The BBC will broadcast the World Cup 2018 last 16 clash between Belgium and Japan this evening.

The match takes place at the Rostov Arena in Rostov-on-Don, where the winners of Group G play the runners-up from Group H.

Roberto Martinez’s side topped their group with a 100 per cent record, having defeated Panama, Tunisia and England.

Japan became the first-ever country to qualify by virtue of their fair-play record, finishing level with Senegal on goal difference, goals scored and goals conceded and sneaking through with fewer yellow cards.

These countries have met five times before, including a group-stage encounter during the 2002 World Cup at Saitama Stadium. Marc Wilmots gave Belgium the lead, before Takayuki Suzuki and Junichi Inamoto gave the hosts a 2-1 lead.

However, Peter Van Der Heyden rescued a point for the Red Devils.

Coverage begins at 6.30pm on BBC One and BBC One HD, where Gary Lineker presents. Match commentary comes from Simon Brotherton and Martin Keown.

Kick-off 7.00pm

The match will also be streamed live via the BBC iPlayer.
