A very even first stage, both teams respected each ether a lot and finished without goals. In the second half, the Manchester United’s striker Lukaku opened the scoring in the 60th minute, setting up a Thomas Meunier center. However, Switzerland, who beat Iceland on the first date, tied the game at minute 76 with a Mario Gavranovic’s goal.
But six minutes to the end, Lukaku appeared again to finish a great collective play of the Red Devils and Dries Mertens assistance to get back on top of the scoreboard.
Belgium was about to take a scare in the minute 90. Courtois conceded a rebound to a far shot and Gavranovic fell in the area when the Real Madrid goalkeeper tried to clear the rebound. Mateu Lahoz, however, did not understand that there was a penalty and that would end the game with the victory of Belgium 2-1 and being the new leader of group 2, with 6 points.
Undoubtedly, this good generation of Belgium will continue to give to speak, with the majority of its players in the best teams in Europe, ordered by Roberto Martinez and led on the field by Eden Hazard.
