Belgium vs Tunisia expected starting XI

World Cup 2018 Belgium vs Tunisia Belgium Face Tunisia Eyeing Race For Supremacy In Group G

Romelu Lukaku and Eden Hazard scored a brace for Belgium and Michy Batshuayi gave Belgium a comfortable victory.

Wahbi Khazri found a second consolation for the Tunisians after steering home a cross-field pass a minute from time.

A win today against Tunisia and Belgium will be basically through to the last 16.

Group G of the 2018 FIFA World Cup is really will take shape when Belgium and Tunisa meet.

Midfielder Ferjani Sassi picked up an early booking for complaining when Tunisia's appeals for a penalty fell on deaf ears, just before Belgium added their second goal. This enabled us to score five goals.

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

Belgium, who named the same starting XI that cruised past Panama in their opening game, got off to a great start after six minutes thanks to some clumsy defending from Syam Ben Youssef.

Melania Trump makes surprise visit to US-Mexico border
When asked what message the first lady's jacket meant to send, spokeswoman Stephanie Grisham said: "It's a jacket". Trump was wearing a different jacket when the plane landed.

Tunisia responded two minutes later when Dylan Bronn headed the ball past Thibaut Courtois at a free-kick.

Ahead of next Thursday's likely top-spot shootout with England in Kaliningrad, however, Martinez has confirmed that Hazard, Lukaku and fellow forward Dries Mertens - each substituted against Tunisia - are all carrying knocks that could rule them out. Sliti starts on the bench after Tunisia's 2-1 defeat by England, while Farouk Ben Mustapha stays in goal after coming on when Mouez Hassen was injured.

However, Tunisia will not make life easy for Belgium as they seek to provide a bright spot in a poor World Cup for African sides, with Egypt and Morocco already out.

Belgium has all but qualified from Group G with two wins.

Belgium pressed Tunisia into giving up the ball in its own half, and attacked with pace and skill in a dizzying mix of talented play.

Tunisia, also without a point after two matches, having extended their 40-year World Cup winless run to 13 games, are also still in with a theoretical chance of making it on through three points.
