Hmm, what to make of the Belgium game, given I didn't see it. Would they have eventually broken through if Mertens doesn't score that lob? Or did it need a stunner for them to break down Panama? This game should offer them a tougher test, as Tunisia looked technically sound, if a bit limited, against England.

Tunisia though, there were players crying and they all looked crestfallen against England. Given that, can they lift themselves to get something here? A point gives them a fighting chance, as a big win against Panama and an England win against Belgium would see them through. After taking a thorough disliking to them, I now say, come on Tunisia.

Looking forward to this one with a few rum and cokes, hard to see past this Belgium side winning but they weren't massively impressive against Panama, and as we know Tunisia made it hard work for England. Hoping for a result for the Africans, would be a big boost for England to win the group.

It’s hard enough playing Belgium without giving away one stupidly after 6 minutes.

Wow what a start to this match, Tunisia back in it now, should give them a lift and maybe create some nerves for Belgium.

Also, the lack of organisation in the Belgian defence for that free-kick is a hopeful sign for England and shows that this is truly a Roberto Martinez side.

Khazri has been much more in the match than he was against England too.

Definitely come back into the game, they need to stop giving the ball away as much in dangerous areas though or they'll be punished.

Belgium looking impressive, more slick going forward than in the first game.

This goal difference could help Belgium secure top in the event both them and us ended up with 7 points. May not come to that of course.

Stat: Lukaku is the first player to score 2 or more goals in consecutive World Cup games since Diego Maradona in 1986 (England & Belgium).

Belgium won the game in the first half, just like England would have done had they been more clinical. Impressive from them though, although given far too much space time and time again. Tunisia made Belgium’s defence look very average though as they caused them a lot of problems, which is encouraging for England.
