With a big smile, and allowed the Red Devils tonight on a visit to king Filip. Or is it vice versa? With two goals from prince Romelu Lukaku, and two of the emperor Eden Hazard blew the Belgians a disappointing weak Tunisia away: 5-2 after a frenzied afternoon.

100 percent sure is the qualification for the 1/8th final yet, but without the accidents of England against Panama dueling the Red Devils Thursday at the group’s profit.

The world cup-the preparation of the Red Devils is now totally on. After Panama, disappeared with Tunisia a second amuse-gueule behind the choosing of the Red Devils. Buffalo Dylan Bronn brought the Red Devils still to the fright with the 2-1, but to the rest, Belgium was ready with a mainly defensive disappointing to Tunisia. Lukaku and Hazard scored two each time, the sunken Batshuayi missed three imposed opportunities. In the slot made the striker then his goal, the second tegengoal was just a footnote.

From the tribune could king Filip just enjoy. The frost got the accusation that he, by his presence, the regime of Vladimir Putin in the map played, but he had a good reason to be in Moscow: a party building with the Red Devils.

Fire and desire

Coach Roberto Martinez opted for the same eleven as against Panama. And even though the temperature in Moscow is certainly not lower than previous Monday in Sochi, began the Red Devils this time with fire and passion to the contest. As feared were the ankles of Eden Hazard is a target of the Tunisians. Already in the first minute he was against the plain worked. And after five minutes came Syam Ben Youssef flown in with a rash tackle on the edge of the penalty area. The American ref Jair Marrufo did not hesitate and pointed straight to the spot.

The videoassistentscheidsrechters doubted and asked Marrufo to the images to revisit. But the American remained in his decision – we are not that many referees do at this world cup. While the Tunisian social media their gal uitspuwden about the decision was Eden Hazard calm behind the ball and he put Belgium 1-0. A droomstart that the Belgians wings gave.


The Tunisian coach Nabil Maaloul had with Saifeddine Khaoui for Naim Sliti a more balvaste player inserted but the Belgian press was too great. It was just to wait until the 2-0 fell. Could first Hazard is not finishing on a cross from Lukaku, then intercepted Dries Mertens a pass from Ben Youssef to Lukaku the 2-0.

Tunisia had the good fortune, shortly afterwards, the aansluitingstreffer to score. Captain Wahbi Khazri kicked a free kick on the head of the run-Dylan Bronn. Two Tunisians were offside, but not the rear right of AA Gent. Unfortunately for Bronn and Ghent, he had a moment later, injured to the side.

The 2-1 was the best Tunisia in that we are on this world cup have seen. Khazri was the dreigendste man and Boyata had a few times to intervene to have a chance at the end to throttling.

Shared topschutter

Lukaku had one good chance on the 3-1 had when he was in the injury time of the first half was aangespeeld by Meunier. The right of Paris Saint-Germain lived in his attacking “wingback”position, and gave it at the perfect moment to Lukaku. For the Manchester United striker, it was the fourth goal of this world cup and his fortieth goal for Belgium. Not only is he shared world cup topschutter with Cristiano Ronaldo, with five world cup goals (also one in Brazil), he will also be on the same level with record-holder Marc Wilmots.

The rest were Demons with Tunisia finished, and they could think ahead to the match against England. Lukaku had in the first half all care received at the foot and went on the hour to the side for Marouane Fellaini. The 4-1 was already on the board. Toby Alderweireld picked up from with one of his typical long balls, Eden Hazard provided the perfect control and finish.

Duel to group profit

Hazard went his goal celebration for the Belgian subjects and the three thousand Belgians, plus many neutral fans that the side of the Red Devils had selected, were now completely out of the sphere.

Martinez also got Hazard at the side, for Michy Batshuayi. Who missed three great chances, but he knew than in the slot to score. So did Tunisia, it was 5-2.

Mathematically, the Red Devils are still not sure of qualification, but without the accidents of England against Panama fights Belgium on Thursday with England in Kaliningrad to the group’s profit.
