They weren’t at their brilliant best but Belgium made it through a very tough round of 16 clash with Portugal.
The relief on Roberto Martinez’s face was obvious and he can be very happy with the way his defence held up to waves of Portugal attacks.
The bookies weren’t overly impressed though as Belgium have been eased to 13/2 with Paddy Power and they have another very tough task in the shape of Italy in the quarter-finals.
