VIDEO : #Russia2018 World Cup : Belgium vs Tunisia 5-2 || WATCH Match Highlights



Romelu Lukaku and Eden Hazard both scored twice as Belgium sent out a message about their World Cup credentials with a 5-2 win over Tunisia on Saturday.

Hazard opened the scoring from the penalty spot (6) before Lukaku doubled their lead (16) with a tidy finish.

Dylan Bronn headed Tunisia back into the game (17) but Belgium always carried a huge threat in attack and Lukaku finished off a counter-attack to re-establish the two-goal cushion (45+3) with his fourth goal of the tournament.



Hazard added another (51) following a wonderful Kevin De Bruyne pass and Belgium could afford substitute Michy Batshuayi to miss a hatful of late chances, although he did finally score in injury time (90), as they all but guaranteed their spot in the last 16.

Whabi Khazri scored a consolation (90+3) for Tunisia, who, barring a minor miracle, are out of the World Cup following two straight defeats.
