Tottenham's Belgian trio could not prevent the Red Devils from exiting the World Cup at the hands of Argentina this afternoon.

An eighth-minute strike was enough to ease the Albiceleste to victory over the Belgians, who struggled to test Argentinian goalkeeper, Sergio Romero.

Jan Vertonghen was the only Spurs player to start, with Nacer Chadli coming on for Eden Hazard with 15 minutes to go.

Moussa Dembele was an unused substitute as Marc Wilmots' side bowed out in the last eight.

Brazil midfielder Paulinho is the single remaining Spurs representative at the World Cup.
