BRUSSELS (Reuters) - Belgium's hopes of reaching their first Davis Cup final in over a century remained alive when world number 15 David Goffin comfortably beat Argentina's Diego Schwartzman in the fourth rubber to take their semi-final into a decisive final singles.

Goffin won 6-3 6-2 6-1 in just over an hour and a half.

The final rubber will see Belgium's Steve Darcis face off Argentina's Federico Delbonis with the winning nation facing Britain in the final after Andy Murray secured an unbeatable 3-1 lead over Australia earlier on Sunday.
