World Cup Group G match report Belgium v Tunisia 23 June 2018

Belgium looks to shut down Tunisia quickly at World Cup Article Image 0

Tunisia, meanwhile, valiantly held England to what appeared to be a draw, but a late Harry Kane header snatched away the point from the Eagles of Carthage, who find themselves in a tough spot fighting for their tournament survival.

He scored twice in Belgium's 3-0 opening Group G game against Panama and needed just 45 minutes against Tunisia to score another double. Hazard added the fourth on the break six minutes after the restart, Michy Batshuayi added a fifth in the last minute before Wahbi Khazri pulled another back for Tunisia.

Hazard scored the opener on a sixth-minute penalty, converting after he was taken down just inside the right of the area by Syam Ben Youssef.

Group G concludes on Thursday, with England playing Belgium in Kaliningrad and Tunisia facing playing Panama at Mordovia Arena in Saransk.

Tunisia captain Khazri grabbed their second goal just before the final whistle of their second defeat in Russian Federation.

That goal served to halt Belgium's early dominance, but they did grab a third with nearly the last kick of the half.

Belgium and England clash next Thursday in their final Group G match in Kaliningrad in a contest likely to decide the pool victor.

An inch-perfect Kevin de Bruyne pass sent Hazard clear for his second six minutes after the restart, the midfielder showing superb balance and skill to round keeper Farouk Ben Mustapha and tuck home to effectively end the contest.

Khazri scored a consolation deep into stoppage time after a neat swivel in the box, but it mattered little as Belgium comfortably took a giant stride towards the last 16.
