Belgium's reward for topping Group G at the 2018 FIFA World Cup is a clash with Japan in the round of 16.
The Red Devils beat England 1-0 on Thursday to secure top spot a few hours after the Samarai Blue lost 1-0 to Poland. They advanced behind Colombia in Group H by having a better fair-play record than Senegal.

Per Reuters' Alastair Macdonald, Romelu Lukaku has recovered from an ankle injury and will be available for the match.
According to the Japanese FA's official website, all of their players participated in training on Friday, the day after the Poland match. However, the starting XI and substitutes Yuya Osako and Makoto Hasebe only "conducted a light recovery session" indoors rather than out on the training pitch.
Transfermarkt suggests Shinji Okazaki could be a doubt because of muscular problems, though.
Japan and Senegal both won 2-1 in their opening group matches before playing out a 2-2 draw.
Each nation lost 1-0 in its final match, leaving the teams level on goal difference and goals scored. In the final period of their game, Japan were evidently well aware of their ability to progress on fair-play grounds, per the Telegraph's Ali Tweedale:
Football writer Rik Sharma noted the irony of the situation:
It will have done little to endear them to fans, but it resulted in the desired outcome of reaching the knockout phase.
Going any further will be difficult, though.
The Samarai Blue lost to a disappointing Poland side who were already out of the tournament and benefited greatly from Carlos Sanchez's third-minute red card in their 2-1 win over Colombia, which handed them a penalty and a man advantage for virtually the entirety of the game.
Meanwhile, Belgium secured a maximum nine points and rang the changes in their victory over the Three Lions.
Lukaku and Eden Hazard were among those left out against England, but they will return here. With six goals and an assist between them, they have maintained their superb form for their national sides at the World Cup:
In the past year, Japan have kept just two clean sheets from 13 matches, and those came against Australia and North Korea.
They are vulnerable at the back, and with Belgium's attacking quality, this should only go one way.
