LEON, Mexico — Belgium shocked the Soviet Union in overtime on goals by Stephane Demol and Nico Claesen Sunday, winning 4-3 to join Mexico in the quarterfinals of the World Cup.
The Belgians, who finished third in Group B, twice came from behind in regulation to tie the score and send the game into overtime. In the first of two 15-minute extra periods, Demol crept behind the defense and headed in a long pass by Eric Gerets at 13 minutes.
The tiring Soviets allowed another goal three minutes into the second extra session when Claesen volleyed a right-foot kick home from 20 yards.
The Soviets, winners of Group C, got one goal back when Igor Belanov scored on a penalty kick, his third goal of the game and fourth of the tournament.
