International

Belgium Down Sweden

Goals from Romelu Lukaku and Eden Hazard handed Belgium a 2-0 over Sweden in an international friendly at the NYA Ullevi Stadion on Sunday.

Sweden started the better of the two teams and had the first decent effort on goal in the eighth minute when Erkan Zengin fired a shot from just inside the box inches over the crossbar.

Five minutes later Vincent Kompany came close for Belgium when he met a Dries Mertens cross, but his header was well-saved by the keeper.

Two minutes later Kevin De Bruyne hit the bar with a right footed shot from the left side of the box after being put into space by Hazard.

Belgium opened the scoring in the 34th minute when Romelu Lukaku found the bottom left corner of the net with a powerful shot from just outside the box, 1-0.

Sweden started the second half positively, like they did in the first, with Mikael Lustig firing wide from just inside the box on the hour mark.

Eight minutes later Erkan Zengin hit the crossbar with a left footed shot from outside the box.

Belgium, however, made certain of the win in the 78th minute when Hazard found himself in space inside the box and he made no mistake to double his side’s lead, 2-0.

Belgium almost found a third in the first minute of injury time when Kevin De Bruyne hit the left post with a right footed shot from the centre of the box.
