Soccer-Belgium stun Brazil to lead 2-0 at halftime

KAZAN, Russia, July 6 (Reuters) - Belgium stunned five-times World Cup winners Brazil as they took a 2-0 halftime lead in their quarter-final on Friday with an own goal by Fernandinho and a superb finish by Kevin de Bruyne.

Brazil went behind when Fernandinho put the ball into his own net from a corner in the 13th minute. The South Americans were open at the back and Belgium took advantage when Romelu Lukaku found De Bruyne who fired home the second in the 31st.
