Hazard and Lukaku at the double as five-star Belgium thrash Tunisia

Romelu Lukaku of Belgium celebrates after scoring his team's third goal during the 2018 FIFA World Cup Russia group G match between Belgium and Panama- World Cup 2018 Belgium vs Tunisia What time is kick-off on Saturday what TV channel is it on

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

Tunisia hit back two minutes later with a Dylan Bronn header as Belgium's own sometimes shaky defending was exposed but another misplaced Tunisian pass enabled Thomas Meunier to feed his goal-hungry striker as Lukaku clipped in to make it 3-1 in stoppage time.

Tunisia captain Wahbi Khazri got his team's second with nearly the last kick of the match.

Tunisia, also without a point after two matches, having extended their 40-year World Cup winless run to 13 games, are also still in with a theoretical chance of making it on through three points.

Hazard scored the opener on a sixth-minute penalty, converting after he was taken down just inside the right of the area by Syam Ben Youssef.

Lukaku, meanwhile, doubled Belgium's lead in the 16th minute, scoring left-footed from the left channel after Dries Mertens forced a turnover.

With half-time approaching, the Belgians grabbed their third goal.

Any faint hopes that Tunisia had of clawing their way back into the game were extinguished six minutes into the second half when Hazard scored his second.

Only in the 90th minute, after Youri Tielemans found him in the box, did Batshuayi tally his first World Cup goal, and Khazri answered in the 93rd minute, moments before the full-time whistle.

Batshuayi looked like he would endure a miserable afternoon after two more missed opportunities - one crashing back off the crossbar from close-range - but the Chelsea man finally scored late on, meeting Youri Tielemans' fine cross at the back post with a controlled half-volley.
