‘Too little, too late’

Belgium 5-2 Tunisia

Chris Sutton

Ex-Chelsea striker on BBC Radio 5 live

Belgium just switched off here. But let’s give Tunisia some credit for not giving up here – Wahbi Khazri with a nice finish at the end, but it’s too little, too late.

GOAL – Belgium 5-2 Tunisia

Wahbi Khazri

And another! We have a seventh goal in Moscow, beautiful stuff. A cut-back from the right is turned in by the shins of Sunderland man Wahbi Khazri.

‘Batshuayi puts disappointment behind him’

Belgium 5-1 Tunisia

Phil Neville

Former England & Man Utd defender in Russia

Fantastic ball by Tielemans and a really good finish.

That is what strikers have got to do, put the disappointment of missed chances behind them.

That will do him an absolute world of good.

  • CLOSE!

    Belgium 5-1 Tunisia

    Incredible! He should have had FIVE! Michy Batshuayi is in again but screws his shot wide.

    He could have won the golden boot in 20 minutes…

Michy Batshuayi’s movement has been brilliant since he came on and he’s finally got his goal. He’s missed a couple of sitters but he’s got this one – a nice sliding, half-volley. Belgium have been good – they’ve been impressive.

GOAL – Belgium 5-1 Tunisia

Michy Batshuayi

You can say what you like about Michy Batshuayi, but if you give him four absolute sitters he will take one.

He finally gets his name on the honours board, steering in a lovely cross from Youri Tielemans. That’s eight goals for Belgium in two games. Hugely impressive.

‘Tunisia have made it easy’

Chris Sutton

Ex-Chelsea striker on BBC Radio 5 live

Tunisia have been wide open at the back this afternoon – that’s been their main weakness. They’ve made it easy for Belgium at times.

‘Belgium could go all the way’

Belgium 4-1 Tunisia

Chris Sutton

Ex-Chelsea striker on BBC Radio 5 live

Belgium could go all the way – they’ve certainly got the talent. The World Cup is wide open at the moment. Brazil have had a slow start after blowing away everyone in qualification. Spain haven’t been overly fluent. Germany have been disappointing. Russia and Mexico have been exciting. Iran could knock Portugal out.

SUBSTITUTION

Belgium 4-1 Tunisia

One for the Football Manager players out there. Wunderkind Youri Tielemans gets a run out as Dries Mertens comes off.

He transformed my Stoke side a few years ago.

How far will Belgium go this time around? Nobody will want to face them in the knockouts if they keep this up.

Richard Vaughan: You really have to admire Michy Batshuayi’s desire to not score.

Paul Smith: All this talk of Lukaku being a flat track bully have a look at Batshuayi. Then tell me about Lukaku.

GREAT SAVE!

Belgium 4-1 Tunisia

Well he only came on in the 68th minute but Michy Batshuayi could have easily had a hat-trick! Kevin de Bruyne picks him out with a cross from the left, his connection is fantastic but Farouk ben Mustapha this time makes a really good save…

How has he missed that? He’s onside, Mustapha couldn’t hold it. I can’t believe it, it looked more difficult to miss.

‘Hold your head in shame’

Belgium 4-1 Tunisia

Chris Sutton

Ex-Chelsea striker on BBC Radio 5 live

Michy Batshuayi – hold your head in shame. The goalkeeper just knocks it down into his path, five yards out, he’s got all the goal to aim at, and he hammers it over the bar.

 

 

 

 

‘England performamce similar to Belgium’

Belgium 4-1 Tunisia

Phil Neville

Former England & Man Utd defender in Russia

England could have had a similar scoreline if you think about the first 30 minuts and the chances they missed.

Similar type of performance, Belgium got the goals to back up the performance.
