Belgium unchanged for Tunisia clash at World Cup

Romelu Lukaku Belgium 2018 World Cup

The Manchester United striker increased his goal tally in Russian Federation to four, bagging a brace against the Carthage Eagles to go alongside his double in the 3-0 victory over Panama.

Eden Hazard has praised his Belgium teammate Romelu Lukaku for his goalscoring prowess following the nation's 5-2 win over Tunisia at the 2018 World Cup.

Tunisia hit back two minutes later with a Dylan Bronn header as Belgium's own sometimes shaky defending was exposed but another misplaced Tunisian pass enabled Thomas Meunier to feed his goal-hungry striker as Lukaku clipped in to make it 3-1 in stoppage time.

Hazard left the game in the 68th minute, with Germany's Andre Schurrle and Toni Kroos, who did so in the 7-1 victory over Brazil in the semifinals in 2014, the last two players to score two goals each in a World Cup game. Belgium keeping the ball well now but Tunisia challenging on the counter.

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

Hornets traded Dwight Howard to the Nets
Getting that, along with a path to two max salary slots in 2019-20 in exchange for getting rid of a grumbling Timofey Mozgov? Howard, 32, played for the Hornets in the 2017-18 season, where he averaged 16.6 points and 9.3 rebounds in 81 games.

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

After earlier squandering two clear chances created by Kevin De Bruyne, Lukaku converted his third opportunity just before the half-time whistle.

Lukaku finishes it coolly to give Belgium a 2-0 lead over Tunisia in the 16th minute. He has scored four in two matches and will have a chance to add to his tally when Belgium takes on England in their final group match.

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