SALVADOR, Brazil - Romelu Lukaku scored a second goal for Belgium in extra time on Tuesday, giving the team a 2-0 lead over the United States in the second round of the World Cup.

Lukaku took a pass from Kevin De Bruyne and beat U.S. goalkeeper Tim Howard in the 105th minute.

A few minutes earlier, De Bruyne scored following a pass from Lukaku, who had come on a substitute just before extra time started.

The match went to extra time after the teams went scoreless through 90 minutes of regulation play. There are two 15-minute halves in extra time. If the match is still even, it will be decided by a penalty shootout.

The game was briefly delayed when a man ran onto the field in the 16th minute.
