Lukaku scores twice as Belgium ease to victory over Panama

Lukaku scores twice as Belgium ease to victory over Panama

TheWord Cup 2018 game between Belgium and Panama will kick off in Fisht Stadium on Monday 18 2018 at 17:00 CEST.

The passion exuded from Panama's national anthem sent social media into overdrive.

They're in group G which also contains England and Tunisia.

Chelsea star Hazard set up Lukaku's second goal, as the Red Devils overcame a hard first half in the Group G encounter.

Whilst Belgium qualified by scoring the joint highest number of goals seen by a European team challenging to reach the World Cup, Panama won just three games during their qualification process.

Many are tipping Belgium for the tournament with their golden generation of players and it will be tough for the Canalmen to cut off the supply to Romelu Lukaku. And when you leave space for the likes of de Bruyne, Lukaku, Dries Mertens, Meunier and Carrasco, you'll be in trouble. It was also no more than they deserved against a Korea Republic side that ended the match without having registered a single shot on target.

One of the features of the World Cup finals so far has been the excellent atmosphere in Russian Federation with fans from all over the World getting together to enjoy the party. While they were able to step up in the second half and take the anticipated win, if they still require points against England in the final group game, Gareth Southgate's side will be able to target that uncertainty. Argentina and Iceland don't have a great distance but there's a greater distance between us and Belgium.

"We didn't lose patience and I think we got better as the game went on in terms of control of play and speed of passing".

Can Belgium live up to expectations against debutants Panama?

The trend over the decades has been clear: European teams win more at World Cups taking place in Europe, and teams from the Americas win more at World Cups taking place outside of Europe.

To a question that why does Belgium have such a good team, he answered: "Belgium is a small country of 11 million inhabitants, and yet we are witnessing a proliferation of very talented players, competing with the absolute world top".

He further said: "But undoubtedly football is king at the moment, and the Belgian team, commonly known as the Red Devils, is immensely popular".
