June 23 (UPI) -- Belgium's national squad snatched a 5-2 win over Tunisia in a group stage match of the 2018 FIFA World Cup Saturday at Spartak Stadium in Moscow.

The goals were scored by Belgium's Eden Hazard (in the 6th minute after a penalty kick and in the 51st minute), Romelu Lukaku (16th and 45th minute) and Michy Batshuayi (90th minute) and Tunisia's Dylan Bronn (18th minute) and Wahbi Khazri (90+3).

Lukaku has so far scored four goals at the current tournament, sharing the first place with Portuguese striker Cristiano Ronaldo.

Belgium and Tunisia have now confronted each other four times. In the previous three games, both teams won one victory each, while another match ended in a draw.
