Alderweireld is the last to have a shot without defenders present. Goes wide.

20 & # 39 ;: Chance for Belgium

Mertens takes the unmarked ball in the box and shoots at close range. However, the guardian Mustapha is there.

18 & # 39 ;: OBJECTIVE! Tunisia Gets One Back

Incredible. Tunisia withdraws one. Khazri with the long free kick and Bronn gets a header.

16 & # 39 ;: GOAL! Belgium 2-0.

Mertens breaks up, feeds Lukaku and takes him home. Easy peasy. This could get ugly. That is the objective No. 3 is this Lukaku World.

10 & # 39 ;: Opportunity for Tunisia

A chip-in for Anice Badri while Tunisia tries to answer. The guard Courtois arrives first.

6 & # 39 ;: GOAL BELGIUM!

Danger takes the penalty. Just in the corner; the guardian did not move. 1-0 Belgium.

5 & # 39 ;: Penalty?

Eden Hazard falls hard. It is a pity? Youssef the culprit. It is a pity. Disastrous start for Tunisia!

Ben Youssef's challenge to Hazard is notable for his stupidity. It came noisily inside him like a fugitive train. A way to absorb the energy of the crowd. #BEL #TUN
