Marc Wilmots reacted to the Hungarian pressure by changing Dries Mertens for Yannick Carrasco and Romelu Lukaku for Michy Batschuayi, and just minutes later it paid off: Eden Hazard did a rush down the left channel and squared the ball in where Batschuayi tapped the ball in for 2-0.

The goal took all the air out of the Hungarians and allowed for the brilliant Eden Hazard to score a beautiful solo goal, driving the ball inwards from the left and releasing a hard low shot from the edge of the area, beating Kiraly at the far lower post.  There was even time for Carrasco to score as well with a great finish, served by Radja Nainggolan.

Belgium go into the quarter finals with great confidence, proficiat and félicitacions!
