Belgium vs Russia highlights

Romelu Lukaku has scored a brace which set Belgium on the way to an opening win. After taking his tally to 20 goals in his last 15 competitive matches, Lukaku is now second overall in the ranking after his fine start to Euro Cup 2021.

88th minute: Belgium 3 | 0 Russia

Meunier advances past the halfway line on the right, considers his options, and calculates a deft low pass onto the path of the dangerman in front of him on the penalty area's edge. Lukaku's finishing is flawless, as he plants a strong finish beyond Shunin's dive at the near post. Three for Belgium, two for Lukaku!

34th minute: Belgium 2 | 0 Russia

It's two now, thanks to the substitution! Hazard cuts inside the penalty area on the left and swings in a magnificent, dipping cross that Shunin can only deflect into Meunier's path in front of goal on the right, who gleefully fires beyond the grounded goalkeeper. 2-0!

10th minute: Belgium 1 | 0 Russia

Belgium takes the lead! Mertens has enough of time to arc a dangerous cross towards Lukaku as he reaches the penalty box from the right. The hitman spins and fires a brilliant finish into the far corner of Shunin's net, defeating the goalkeeper's dive to his left. The dangerous striker now has six goals in his previous eight outings!
