FIFA World cup 2018 | Belgium qualify for World Cup knock-out stages


Romelu Lukaku and Eden Hazard scored two goal each as Belgium ran out agreeable victors against Tunisia to fit the bill for the thump out stages from Group G.

While England required a last-wheeze Harry Kane champ to conquer Tunisia on Monday night, Belgium had no such issues as Roberto Martinez's side changed over their odds in Moscow.

Chelsea star Hazard opened the scoring in the 6th moment when he was fouled on the edge of the case after a one-two with Lukaku. The ref accurately declared him to be in the region and he opened the punishment home.

But Belgium's big names continued to make chances and Lukaku claimed his second - and fourth of the tournament - with a deft touch over the goalkeeper in the third minute of added time.

Hazard added a fourth shortly after the restart when he showed great control and composure to slot the finish past the goalkeeper and two defenders in the 51st minute.

Lukaku was replaced with just over half an hour to go with Martinez eager to protect his star striker for their final group match against Gareth Southgate's side on Thursday evening.

Substitute Michy Batshuayi had three great chances in the final 13 minutes to add to Belgium's lead but had one effort cleared off the line, struck another close-range chance against the bar and saw his third saved by the keeper.

But Batshuayi finally got on the scoresheet in stoppage time when he slotted home Belgium's fifth.

Tunisia grabbed a late consolation through Wahbi Khazri but will be heading home after losing their second group match.
