Five-goal Belgium say stand by for more

Lukaku lifts the ball over Panama goalkeeper Jaime Penedo in their World Cup game. It finished 3-0

"It must have been a great game to watch as a neutral but there are lots of things we need to work on and that starts tomorrow", he said.

Michy Batshuayi, the leading candidate to replace him should he become unavailable, did come on for Belgium after replacing Eden Hazard on 68 minutes in the second half.

It might have only been Panama, but England could hardly have been more impressive in thrashing their Group G rivals to make it six points from six at this year's World Cup.

Veteran striker Javier Hernandez doubled the lead when he scored after the main break, notching his 50th goal for Mexico in 104 internationals.

Belgium are likely to rest midfield maestro Kevin De Bruyne and possibly striker Romelu Lukaku for their last World Cup group match against England, coach Roberto Martinez said on Monday.

With four World Cup goals in two games, Romelu Lukaku may have finally answered Belgian prayers for a consistent target man to turn a team of abundant midfield creativity into potential champions.

Lukaku now has four goals in just two World Cup appearances in Russian Federation this summer. Although none of those injuries appear serious, they are obvious candidates to miss the England match to ensure they are 100 per cent fit for the knockouts.

He now sits level with Cristiano Ronaldo in the race for the "Golden Boot" in Russian Federation with four goals and he could have had even more if coach Roberto Martinez had not chose to substitute him with over half an hour still to play. We were talking about Lukaku to check and change the angle of his runs to create his own space that's what he did there.

With that in mind, Martinez said he was unlikely to field any players who have a yellow card in case they picked up another and are disqualified from the round of 16.

Toni Kroos rescued holders Germany from the brink of an unthinkable early World Cup exit here Saturday, curling home a sensational victor in the fifth minute of stoppage time to seal a 2-1 win over Sweden.

"For our country, that would be a very hard mindset to have", Southgate said of the possibility of taking it easy.

"The reason we spent the biggest amount of money for Everton was because we saw the outstanding quality of his finishing, not because he was the finished article, not because he was a player who could give you something other than scoring goals".
