Lukaku and Hazard score two each as Belgium rout Tunisia 5-2

Belgium duo Romelu Lukaku and Eden Hazard scored two goals each in the 5-2 World Cup rout of Tunisia in Moscow.

Lukaku, who also had a brace against Panama on Monday, has scored 17 goals in his last 11 global games, Hazard scored his first two World Cup goals with a penalty in the opening minutes and Michy Batshuayi capped off the scoring late.

However, Dylan Bronn pulled a goal back for Tunisia two minutes later with a towering header inside the box following free-kick from Wahbi Kazri. A spot in the round of 16 is nearly certain after an opening 3-0 win over Panama.

Before all that Group F craziness, Belgium takes the field in the morning against Tunisia as they look to follow up its comprehensive 3-0 victory over Panama in the opening round.

Belgium expect to be up against a defensive Tunisia, who will rely on quick counter-attacks.

In addition, Eden Hazard's converted spot kick is the 13th penalty awarded at this World Cup.

Toby Alderweireld's long pass from defence was taken on the chest by Hazard, who then rounded Mustapha to stroke into an empty net.

With seven defeats in seven matches for Arab countries, Tunisia will hope to stop the rot.

Hazard won the penalty when he was brought down by Tunisia's Syam Ben Youssef on the edge of the area.

The game between England and Belgium, scheduled for Thursday, will determine which team top the group. Lukaku then ran ahead and, with Ben Mustapha drawn forward, Lukaku chipped it over the goalkeeper from nine yards out.

Don't miss a moment of the World Cup!

They can seal qualification to the second round with a win today, and start fulfilling some of the potential their squad promises.
