Lukaku, Hazard score 2 each, help Belgium beat Tunisia 5-2

Belgium vs Tunisia LIVE stream

Belgium, with a win over Panama in its opening match, stand on top of the group with six points while England will play Panama on Sunday in their second round group match.

With their last match of the group stage scheduled against unsafe England, Martinez's men would want maximum points from today's match.

Michy Batshuayi, on loan at Dortmund from Chelsea, added the fifth in the game's dying minutes, only for Tunisia captain Wahbi Khazri to claim a consolation goal in added time.

New tech and resources for studying opponents are letting World Cup minnows cramp the style of bigger teams, Roberto Martinez said as his Belgium side prepare to try and break down a well-organised Tunisia on Saturday.

Tunisia captain Wahbi Khazri then scored with nearly the last kick of the match.

In what has been a hugely productive 2017-18 campaign, Lukaku has followed up his 27 goals in all competitions for United with seven goals for Belgium in June alone.

"No team goes into a game wanting to lose", he added.

It got worse for the Tunisians six minutes into the second-half with Hazard showing a delightful piece of skill for Belgium's fourth. "The understanding between players is really really good".

But Maaloul was compelled to alter his defence when right back Dylan Bronn and center back Syam Ben Youssef were forced off injured in the 24th and 41st minutes respectively.

Other co-stars were said to be in attendance, including Peter Dinklage , Emilia Clarke , Sophie Turner , and Maisie Williams . Kit , also 31, said: "The country is attractive ... the Northern Lights are magical ... it was there that I fell in love".

After receiving two goals in the net from Belgium Tunisia scored one against Belgium.

Substitute Batshuayi missed a hat-trick of fantastic chances within five minutes before finally finding the target in the 90th with a good finish.

A lot of the drama at this World Cup has had little to do with the football so far.

Tunisia who first made appearance at the world cup in 1978, have never gone past the group stage in four appearances.

Belgium light up the group stages with a ruthless demolition of Tunisia.

Just before half time Lukaku shredded Tunisia's hopes of winning the Group G matches as he scored Belgium's 3rd goal.

Hazard, whose younger brother Thorgan is also in a squad considered to be Belgium's best for decades, is aware of the thirst for success back home. Lukaku then ran ahead and, with Ben Mustapha drawn forward, Lukaku chipped it over the goalkeeper from nine yards out.

When asked by Xinhua reporter about the two national team players Yannick Carrasco and Axel Witsel, Martinez said that they have concerns that the duo might see their form dropping in the Chinese Super League but their concerns proved to be unnecessary.
