This World Cup appears to be getting better and better.

The second round of group games have served up some real treats, with Belgium and Tunisia involved in a real entertaining clash in Moscow.

The heat was supposed to slow the pace down, but it was the complete opposite as Belgium soared into an early 2-0 lead.

Eden Hazard and Romelu Lukaku got the goals but after 17 minutes, it was 2-1 as Dylan Bronn headed home for the Tunisians.

And the African side kept threatening Thibaut Courtois' goal, but Lukaku was on hand to score his fourth of the tournament just before the break.

Hazard then got his second after the interval, before Michy Batshuayi and Wahbi Khazri got on the scoresheet to leave the final score 5-2 to the Belgians.

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.

Manchester United's main man was put through by Kevin De Bruyne, but a poor first touch saw him blow the chance.


Tunisia's goalkeeper came off his line and made minimal contact, but Lukaku was honest enough to admit it was not a penalty despite his initial error.

We need to see more of this in the game.


After Neymar's theatrics and the unsportsmanlike behaviour from Argentina vs Croatia, this was just so refreshing to see.

And Lukaku deserved all the praise he was getting on Twitter.


Of course, VAR would likely have intervened had he taken the Neymar route, but it was still nice to see his positive reaction.

And he got his just reward with two more goals, further extending his stunning goal record for the Red Devils.

Lukaku, Hazard and De Bruyne looking real good? England, be worried.
