Roberto Martinez names unchanged Belgium team for Tunisia clash

Romelu Lukaku Belgium 2018 World Cup

Belgium looked impressive in an attacking sense at the Spartak Stadium, with Eden Hazard and Romelu Lukaku helping themselves to a couple of goals apiece, while substitute Michy Batshuayi also registered late on.

Cursed by the "Golden Generation" tag for their last two worldwide tournaments, Belgium have been seen as underachievers given the wealth of talent at their disposal. They can officially claim a spot in the knockout stages if Panama fail to defeat England on Sunday - setting up a final-day battle between the two European sides to decide top spot in the group.

Following his double in the 3-0 win over Panama it took the him to four goals for the tournament, level with Portugal's Cristiano Ronaldo, and made him Belgium's highest scorer at a single World Cup - after one-and-a-half games.

And Belgium, who wrap up Group G against England on Thursday, may confront fitness concerns with Lukaku, who had his right ankle worked on in the first half before coming off in the 59th minute with the result no longer in question.

Syam Ben Youssef needlessly crashed into Hazard to give away a sixth-minute penalty, which he calmly converted. "There are very many things that we need to work on", Martinez said.

The decline has coincided with a greater understanding that smoking is a cause of cancer, heart disease and other health problems. The launch and popularity of e-cigarettes has also played a factor.as 3 percent of adults use them.

Tunisia coach Nabil Maaloul said his young squad were nervous in their first appearance on the World Cup stage against England but they would be more confident against Belgium.

This World Cup appears to be getting better and better. "The first game at any tournament is always a little tough and the heat also exhausted us out but after rest we'll be ready to roll again", Chelsea playmaker Hazard said in the build-up to the weekend's clash.

Against England on Thursday, Belgium will be favored to advance as the victor of Group H.

And there was a moment in the first-half from Lukaku that really got fans talking, with the likes of Piers Morgan and rugby referee Nigel Owens all praising the Belgian striker.
