Romelu Lukaku and Eden Hazard scored two goals each in a dominant Belgium display on Saturday, leading their team to a 5-2 win against Tunisia in the highest scoring game of the Soccer World Cup.

Group G of the 2018 FIFA World Cup is really will take shape when Belgium and Tunisa meet.

Should they lose their final game against England, now on three, and pointless Panama somehow beat England and Tunisia, all three would have six points and the top two would be decided on goal difference.

The Manchester United striker increased his goal tally in Russian Federation to four, bagging a brace against the Carthage Eagles to go alongside his double in the 3-0 victory over Panama.

He scored twice in Belgium's 3-0 opening Group G game against Panama and needed just 45 minutes against Tunisia to score another double. VAR was used, confirming that the challenge was illegal and that it had taken place just inside the penalty area.

The Chelsea star sprinted onto De Bruyne's lofted pass, held off two defenders, rounded keeper Ben Mustapha and tapped home Belgium's fourth goal in the 51st minute.

Hazard left the game in the 68th minute, with Germany's Andre Schurrle and Toni Kroos, who did so in the 7-1 victory over Brazil in the semifinals in 2014, the last two players to score two goals each in a World Cup game.

Ali Maaloul then gave the ball away at halfway after 16 minutes, Dries Mertens drove forward before rolling it into the path of Lukaku to plant it low into the corner.

Substitute Batshuayi missed a hat-trick of fantastic chances within five minutes before finally finding the target in the 90th with a good finish.
