Premier League stars Romelu Lukaku and Eden Hazard scored a brace each as Belgium thrashed Tunisia 5-2 in their second game to move three points clear at the top of Group G.

Chelsea forward Hazard started the scoring for the Red Devils as he won and scored a 6th minute penalty before Lukaku added a second goal ten minutes later only for Gent defender Dylan Bronn to halve the deficit via a bullet header two minutes later.

The Manchester United striker restored the two-goal advantage on the stroke of halftime to complete his brace and take his Russia 2018 FIFA World Cup tournament tally to four goals, alongside fellow joint topscorer Cristiano Ronaldo.

Hazard added a fourth goal six minutes after halftime before substitute Michy Batshuayi scored a fifth goal in the final minute of the game.

Tunisia captain reduced the deficit in added time but it was mere consolation for the Carthage Eagles who are on their way out of the tournament.

Belgium are now on the brink of qualification for the knockout stage and unbeaten in their last 21 games since the defeat to Spain in 2016.

The win takes Belgium to 6 points from 2 games and have established their top spot status in Group G ahead of England (3 points), Panama (0 point) and Tunisia (0 point).

England and Panama play their second game on the group on Sunday.
