Hazard praises Lukaku after Tunisia bashing

Belgian attacker, Eden Hazard has hailed teammate Romelu Lukaku after Belgium defeated Tunisia by five goals to two in their second group game at the ongoing FIFA World Cup in Russia.

Lukaku scored his third and fourth goal of the tournament against the North Africans, making him the highest goal scorer alongside Portugal's Cristiano Ronaldo.

Hazard also scored two goals against the African side, the first one a penalty. His two goals in the game takes his tally to three in the entire tournament.

Hazard's penalty was the thirteenth penalty awarded in this edition of the biggest footballing event in the world.

The Chelsea attacker described Lukaku's performance in the game as 'fantastic', going further to say that it is very easy to play alongside the Manchester United attacker.

Lukaku showed great presence in the game, always available to receive a pass from Belgium's supporting attackers.

Belgium currently have nine points, and will face England in their final game of the group next Thursday.
