Belgium are going to need to put more effort into this game, Slovakia are quite comfortable here.

I watched the highlights of the 4-0 over Wales, and they looked very good.

Not missing Courtois there, that's a brilliant save and a very strong hand, that was a vicious shot.

They don't look comfortable when they try to build-up action from 5 meters line. Belgium with high pressing almost scored after a mistake by the GK who passed the ball directly to his opponent. I wonder if Belgium will finally take advantage from it in the 2nd half.

That would be too easy, Mr. Lukaku :grin1: Still 1-0 Slovakia.

So much booing. He clearly took a knee to the head on the replay. Didn't they show it on the screen?

What a player Lobotka!
Far above the average of Slovakia players.

Nearly got them with that again there. So many Belgians forward when they stole the ball.

Lukaku goal!
Lack of attention by Slovakia defense. Lukaku too free in the middle of the box

Hand in the build. Very harsh, letter of law rather than spirit.

Both goals correctly disallowed as per the current rules. But Belgium really unlucky, even if they seem below their level of the last 8-10 years.

It's been a much improved second half for Belgium, Slovakia have ridden their luck. Still a decent chunk of injury time to go...

Slovakia win. Apparently the biggest upset in the history of the tournament by FIFA Ranking, 48th beats 3rd. That'll be a big haul of FIFA points for Slovakia and pull Belgium down.
