USA goalkeeper Tim Howard set a World Cup saves record in defeat to Belgium.

In making 15 saves, the Everton custodian had set a new World Cup record since such statistics were first collected in 1966.

Peru's Ramon Quiroga held the previous best with 13 against Holland in 1978.

Seventeen of Belgium’s 39 shots had found the target, only the extra-time efforts of Kevin De Bruyne and Romelu Lukaku managing to evade Howard.
