Belgium vs. Tunisia - Football Match Report

Share

Hazard scored the opener on a sixth-minute penalty, converting after he was taken down just inside the right of the area by Syam Ben Youssef.

Lukaku, who also had a brace against Panama on Monday, has scored 17 goals in his last 11 worldwide games, Hazard scored his first two World Cup goals with a penalty in the opening minutes and Michy Batshuayi capped off the scoring late.

Two goals each for Romelu Lukaku and Eden Hazard and one for Michy Batshuayi swept Belgium to a 5-2 victory over Tunisia on Saturday that put them in command of World Cup Group G and underlined their status as one of the tournament favourites. Dylan Bronn and captain Wahbi Khazri were on target for Tunisia.

Belgium coach Roberto Martinez will field the same starting XI which beat Panama 3-0 on Monday, hoping for three points that would all but qualify his side for the next round before they face England on Thursday.

Belgium and England clash next Thursday in their final Group G match in Kaliningrad in a contest likely to decide the pool victor. Lukaku finishes it coolly to give Belgium a 2-0 lead over Tunisia in the 16th minute.

If Belgium beats Tunisia it will be nearly certainly assured of a place in the knockout stages of the World Cup. On Sunday, a draw for England against Panama would knock the African team out of the World Cup.
