In a high tempo game, Lukaku bagged a second consecutive brace, taking him to seven goals in his last four global games, while captain Hazard notched his first goals of the tournament in a dominant performance for the Red Devils.

Eden Hazard has praised his Belgium teammate Romelu Lukaku for his goalscoring prowess following the nation's 5-2 win over Tunisia at the 2018 World Cup.

Khazri and Dylan Broon scored for Tunisia but it was not enough as they were eliminated from the tournament.

Priyanka Chopra and Nick Jonas PDA game going strong!

Should they lose their final game against England, now on three, and pointless Panama somehow beat England and Tunisia, all three would have six points and the top two would be decided on goal difference.

Lukaku, though, came through in added time with the third goal, moments after Kevin De Bruyne missed the striker in the box by mere inches.

Hazard then ran on to a long pass in the 51st minute, flicked the ball around Ben Mustapha and shot into an empty net. Farouk Ben Mustapha is expected to be his replacement. Unless Panama beat England in Sunday's Group G match, Belgium will be through with a game to spare while Tunisia will be out.

Diego Costa gets angry in post-match interview after Spain beat Iran
Iran kept a firm head on all fronts, despite David Silva's attempted volley that sailed over the crossbar after 30 minutes. Spain: De Gea 6, Carvajal 7, Pique 6, Ramos 6, Alba 5, Iniesta 5, Busquets 6, Silva 5, Isco 7, Lucas Vazquez 5, Costa 7.


Tunisia looked set to pick up a point against England until Kane's late intervention, and another defeat will likely signal the end of their World Cup hopes. Substitute Michy Batshuayi made it a rout in stoppage time, and failed with three other good scoring chances.

Only in the 90th minute, after Youri Tielemans found him in the box, did Batshuayi tally his first World Cup goal, and Khazri answered in the 93rd minute, moments before the full-time whistle.
