MOSCOW-Romelu Lukaku drew level with Cristiano Ronaldo at the top of the World Cup goalscoring charts on Saturday, scoring twice as Belgium moved to the brink of the last 16 after a 5-2 romp against Tunisia.
Tunisia XI: Ben Mustapha; Bronn, S. Ben Youssef, Meriah, Maaloul; Skhiri, Sassi, Khaoui, Badri; F. Ben Youssef; Khazri.
England will await the result of this match with a great deal of interest with their Group G encounter with Panama on Sunday.
Group G of the 2018 FIFA World Cup is really will take shape when Belgium and Tunisa meet.
But they could not compete with Belgium's vastly superior firepower and Lukaku gave the Red Devils breathing space once more with a dinked finish from a Thomas Meunier pass just before half-time.
Tunisia weren't expected to set the world alight in Russian Federation, or even to take a point against the Red Devils, but the nature of their defeat demands investigation.
Against Tunisia, they were up against a side that frustrated England for large parts of their encounter last weekend, and could probably count themselves unlucky to come away with nothing after Harry Kane's late victor.
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.
Martinez expanded on the injury to Lukaku, as he hinited the striker tried to run off the problem in the second half before he was substituted after 59 minutes. Belgium then claimed a 1-0 victory in a friendly in June 2014.
Eden Hazard fired the ball to the net and Belgium gained their 4th goal of the game and leads by 3 goals.
Hazard had accused Lukaku of "hiding" against Panama.
It looks a simple task for Belgium on paper - but this World Cup isn't going to the script. Belgium are leading Tunisia with one goal to nil.
Bronn, the scorer of Tunisia's first goal, was replaced by Hamdi Nagguez before Leicester City's Yohan Benalouane came in for Ben Youssef.
After 80' Belgium 4, Tunisia 1.
