Hazard, Lukaku Goals Put Belgium in Control Against Tunisia

Belgium boss Roberto Martinez

Belgium, in my opinion, the strongest team in this group.We slightly modify our game.

Michy Batshuayi, on loan at Dortmund from Chelsea, added the fifth in the game's dying minutes, only for Tunisia captain Wahbi Khazri to claim a consolation goal in added time. He is now also joint-top scorer with Cristiano Ronaldo on four points.

Belgium are beginning to look the part at this summer's World Cup, with another resounding victory over the Eagles of Carthage.

In the end, it was Harry Kane who came to the rescue with a brace on his World Cup debut to win it for England, but both of those goals should not have happened had Tunisia had players standing on both posts at set pieces.

Defeat for Tunisia leaves them all-but-out of the tournament, needing Panama to defeat England on Sunday to maintain even the smallest shred of hope of reaching the knockout rounds.

Wabhi Khazri's side-footed finish in the last seconds of the game put a flattering gap of respectability to an otherwise desolate performance at the Spartak Stadium that ended their interest at the tournament.

In what has been a hugely productive 2017-18 campaign, Lukaku has followed up his 27 goals in all competitions for United with seven goals for Belgium in June alone.

"The match was easy because we scored after five minutes and knew Tunisia would leave spaces as they needed to win, making it easier for us".

Belgium made it 4-1 shortly after the restart when Eden Hazard scored his second of the game. "The understanding between players is really really good". Sliti starts on the bench after Tunisia's 2-1 defeat by England, while Farouk Ben Mustapha stays in goal after coming on when Mouez Hassen was injured.

With less than five minutes on the clock, Hazard was brought down by Syam Ben Youssef.

The Red Devils' best run at a World Cup is third place in 1986 but they are regarded as dark horses for the title in Russian Federation.

After this, the struggle between the two teams continued for a long time. They got good opportunities to score goals, but the team was not able to convert it.

After racking up two wins and a goal difference of plus-six Belgium are virtually assured of advancing but it is not yet guaranteed - and they will be aware that they will need to tighten up at the back to handle the threat of the big guns deeper into the tournament.

That approach nearly paid off against England in Volgograd on Monday as they frustrated Gareth Southgate's men for most of the second half after they pulled level 10 minutes before the break from the penalty spot.
