Belgium wrapped up a perfect campaign in Group H with a 1-0 victory over South Korea. 

The Belgians had already advanced to the knockout stages, but clinched their spot atop the group and a date with the United States in the round of 16 on Tuesday. 

Jan Vertonghen gave 10-man Belgium the late lead in the 77th minute after pouncing on a rebound and finishing at the near post.

The teams went into half-time scoreless, but not without a few highlights. 

Steven Defour was sent off shortly before half-time for a not-so-subtle stomp:

Belgium's Dries Mertens had Belgium's best chance of the half, but couldn't keep his shot down:

Oh, #BEL. You gotta make those shots, buddy! http://t.co/N5AWhGdoAl https://t.co/1WF1xfAakl
