Belgium-Canada 1-0

Belgium got off on the right foot in Group F of the World Cup.

Martinez’s team beat Canada 1-0 at Ahmad bin Ali Stadium despite the absence of Romelu Lukaku, who is still unavailable.

The match was decided by the striker deployed in place of the Inter player, Batshuayi, who scored at the end of a beautiful restart.

The big chance the “Canucks” wasted in the 11th minute when Davies had a penalty saved by Courtois. Protests over two penalty kicks not awarded by referee Sikazwe.
