Eden Hazard hails prolific Belgium teammate Romelu Lukaku

Tunisia coach Nabil Maaloul demands changes after painful World Cup defeat against Belgium

Lukaku, who also had a brace against Panama on Monday, has scored 17 goals in his last 11 worldwide games, Hazard scored his first two World Cup goals with a penalty in the opening minutes and Michy Batshuayi capped off the scoring late. England, meanwhile, would seal their own qualification for the last 16 by beating Panama.

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

Wahbi Khazri found a second consolation for the Tunisians after steering home a cross-field pass a minute from time.

Hazard scored the opener on a sixth-minute penalty, converting after he was taken down just inside the right of the area by Syam Ben Youssef.

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.

Belgium and England clash next Thursday in their final Group G match in Kaliningrad in a contest likely to decide the pool victor.

Dries Mertens won possession just inside the Tunisia half before driving forward and feeding Lukaku. Tunisia pull a goal back.

With the game essentially wrapped up, Martinez opted to bring Lukaku off before the hour, the striker having picked up a knock on his foot earlier in the game.

Michy Batshuayi closed in on his first World Cup goal, but his attempt was cleared off the line after rounding Mustapha 14 minutes to full-time.

Batshuayi looked like he would endure a miserable afternoon after two more missed opportunities - one crashing back off the crossbar from close-range - but the Chelsea man finally scored late on, meeting Youri Tielemans' fine cross at the back post with a controlled half-volley.
