Lukaku & Hazard Down Salah-Less Egypt

International Friendly 

Result: Belgium 3-0 Egypt

Date: 06 June 2018

Venue: King Baudouin Stadium

Goals from Romelu Lukaku, Eden Hazard and Marouane Fellaini guided Belgium to a 3-0 win over Egypt, who were without Mohamed Salah in their final World Cup warm-up clash.

Roberto Martinez's charges dominated the opening exchanges, but they were let down by their decision-making in the opening 20 minutes.

The home side eventually broke the deadlock in the 27th minute thanks to a strike from Lukaku, who fired home from close range.

Eden Hazard went close to doubling Belgium's lead after 31 minutes but he blazed his effort over the crossbar from close range.

The Chelsea star was not to be denied seven minutes later as he doubled the lead by turning home Yannick Carrasco's cross from close range.

That proved to be the final bit of goal-mouth action in the half as the hosts went into the break with a two-goal lead.

The Egyptians, who were without the injured Salah, nearly pulled a goal back 10 minutes into the second half but Thibaut Courtois produced a good save to keep out Trezeguet's strike.

Substitute goalkeeper Mohamed El Shenawy came to Egypt's rescue in the 69th minute with a good save to deny Carrasco from close range, following some good work by Thomas Munier.

Egypt did have another chance to get a goal with 10 minutes remaining, with Kahraba sending a header wide of the upright.

The Red Devils managed to see out the closing stages with relative ease and they managed to add a third goal in second-half stoppage time, with Fellaini firing home a close-range effort after being teed up Michy Batshuayi.
