Lukaku and Hazard likely to miss Group G showdown with injury concern

A loss for Panama or England will seal their spot in the last 16.

Here's how to watch Belgium vs. Tunisia online.

It was the second-earliest goal scored by a Belgium player at a World Cup after Leopold Anoul scored in the fifth minute in 1954.

Belgium's forward Romelu Lukaku scores a goal during the Russian Federation 2018 World Cup Group G football match between Belgium and Tunisia at the Spartak Stadium in Moscow on Jun 23, 2018.

Belgium's forward Eden Hazard scored the opening goal during the Russian Federation 2018 World Cup Group G football match between Belgium and Tunisia at the Spartak Stadium in Moscow on Jun 23, 2018.

Tunisia are a lot more upbeat now, a few days on from their late defeat to England.

England will await the result of this match with a great deal of interest with their Group G encounter with Panama on Sunday.

Romelu Lukaku, Dries Mertens and Eden Hazard again lead the attack in an unchanged Belgium lineup for the World Cup game against Tunisia.

Martinez told reporters after the match that Lukaku has "external ligament" damage in his left foot, Hazard has a problem with his calf and Mertens suffered "a bit of a knock on his ankle". Belgium can tighten its grip on first place in the group and book a spot in the Round of 16 with a win over Tunisa, which needs to win or draw in order to avoid elimination from World Cup 2018. The Manchester United striker then arrowed a low strike across Farouk Ben Mustapha into the bottom-right corner for his third goal of the tournament.
