Roberto Martinez brought Fellaini on and that was the change they need. Vertonghen scored a fantastic header in the 69 minute.
Fellaini’s header made it two-all with minutes to the end of the game. With seconds to end the game, DeBruyne started a counterattack while defending a corner kick.
Chadli was unmarked when he got the ball and tapped it into the net. The referee ended the game when Japan passed the ball.
