Eden Hazard hails prolific Belgium teammate Romelu Lukaku

Belgium looks to shut down Tunisia quickly at World Cup Article Image 0

Belgium looks to take another big step toward the knockout stage of the 2018 World Cup when it faces Tunisia in Moscow on Saturday.

Lukaku, meanwhile, doubled Belgium's lead in the 16th minute, scoring left-footed from the left channel after Dries Mertens forced a turnover.

The ball continued rolling for the Red Devils as Eden Hazard earned Belgium a penalty after five minutes.

Should they lose their final game against England, now on three, and pointless Panama somehow beat England and Tunisia, all three would have six points and the top two would be decided on goal difference.

Against England on Thursday, Belgium will be favoured to advance as the winners of Group H.

Khazri and Dylan Broon scored for Tunisia but it was not enough as they were eliminated from the tournament.

An inch-perfect Kevin de Bruyne pass sent Hazard clear for his second six minutes after the restart, the midfielder showing superb balance and skill to round keeper Farouk Ben Mustapha and tuck home to effectively end the contest.

With half-time approaching, the Belgians grabbed their third goal. Lukaku then ran ahead and, with Ben Mustapha drawn forward, Lukaku chipped it over the goalkeeper from nine yards out.

However, Tunisia will not make life easy for Belgium as they seek to provide a bright spot in a poor World Cup for African sides, with Egypt and Morocco already out.

Only in the 90th minute, after Youri Tielemans found him in the box, did Batshuayi tally his first World Cup goal, and Khazri answered in the 93rd minute, moments before the full-time whistle.
