Belgium and US 0-0 after 90 minutes at World Cup

SALVADOR, Brazil (AP) — The United States held tough against Belgium’s relentless pressure and took Tuesday’s second round match to extra time at 0-0 at the World Cup.

U.S. goalkeeper Tim Howard made a tough save in the first minute to deny teenager Divock Origi to start a standout game as waves of Belgian attacks largely went unanswered in a lopsided match.

Yet the United States relied on its stamina, and on Howard, to force extra time.

The game was briefly delayed when a man ran onto the field in the 16th minute and had to be escorted off.
