Belgium 3-0 Panama Full Highlights | FIFA World Cup 2018

Panama’s first ever game at the World Cup ended in a 3-0 loss to Belgium, a super strike from Dries Mertens breaking the deadlock.

Dries Mertens scored a stunning volley and Romelu Lukaku was twice on target as Belgium started their Group G campaign with a 3-0 defeat of World Cup debutants Panama in Sochi.

Belgium impressed in an unbeaten qualifying campaign, becoming the first European nation to book their place at Russia 2018.

But Roberto Martinez’s side struggled to break Panama down in a flat first half at the Fisht Stadium on Monday, requiring a moment of magic from Mertens to break the deadlock in the 47th minute.

Panama almost mustered a rapid leveller but Thibaut Courtois made a smart stop to keep out a low strike from Michael Murillo, before Lukaku struck twice in six minutes to settle the contest.

Lukaku nodded in a sensational Kevin De Bruyne pass and the Manchester United striker then scored a cute chip, though Panama can take heart from a promising display ahead of games against England and Tunisia.

Martinez’s golden generation have been tipped as potential champions, but Belgium – beaten by Wales in the Euro 2016 quarter-finals – will likely need to improve on an often-underwhelming performance when they face stronger opposition.

Third Goal

Belgium 3-0 Panama | Romelu Lukaku Goal | FIFA World Cup 2018

VAR was used to check for offside against Lukaku for the second goal, but replays showed that the Manchester United striker was just onside, and the goal was allowed to stand. The referee was not called to the side of the pitch to check, but the decision was made remotely in Moscow.

Panama are still trying, forcing Courtois into a routine catch as they push forward, but it’s evident that heads have dropped now. A comeback looks increasingly unlikely.

Dembele replaces Carrasco for Belgium, indicating a possible change of formation here to four at the back, with Vertonghen shifting to left-back and the substitute taking his place in midfield.

 GOAL! LUKAKU!! He’s made it 3-0 with his second of the day! Belgium break quickly and cleverly, with Hazard sliding a perfectly-weighted pass in behind for the striker, who lofted over the onrushing goalkeeper with ease! This is more like it! 

Romelu Lukaku Second Goal

CHANCE! Some lovely one-touch football from Belgium as they slice through the Panama defence and into the box, but Lukaku just takes his eye off the ball and lets the return pass slip away from him at the vital moment!

Belgium piling the pressure on here as they throw men forward, and Mertens’ dangerous cross is deflected behind for a corner.

Wide-man Barcenas comes off for a striker in Gabriel Torres as Gomez looks to go for a positive result.

De Bruyne and Mertens both stand over a well-positioned free-kick, but it’s wasted as the former smacks it straight into the wall.

Panama have been forced to retreat into their shell, restricting Belgium to more of the slow, sideways passing we saw in the first half. They’ll bide their time, waiting for an opportunity to launch a quick counter attack to their new front two.

GOAL!! LUKAKU MAKES IT 2-0 TO BELGIUM! A slick move produces the second goal, with Hazard cutting inside and playing the ball to De Bruyne, who beats his man and curls in a wonderful ball with the outside of his boot for Lukaku to power home a header at the back post!

Barcenas joins his team-mate in the book as he unceremoniously dumps Carrasco onto the turf. Possibly the easiest decision of the day for the referee.

Perhaps Martinez will need to change something at half-time, maybe releasing De Bruyne further forward in order to feed the front three, replacing a central defender in the process. Panama will have to maintain their enegery and their solidity to keep their illustrious opponents at bay, but they will certaibly be happy with the scoreline at the break. 
At half-time, Belgium haven’t quite hit top gear. They started brightly, but their tempo dropped off as the half wore on, Panama look spirited, but haven’t really threatened the Belgium back three and Courtios hasn’t had a notable save to make. Hazard and Mertens have tries to create moments of magic, but Lukaku has hardly touched the ball, and De Bruyne’s quality appears wasted in his deeper role. 
GOAL!!! WHAT A HIT BY MERTENS! It’s 1-0 to Belgium! They’ve hit early on in the second half courtesy of a wonder-goal by Mertens! A cross towards Lukaku is only half-headed clear, and Mertens hits a sublime, dipping volley over the gaolkeeper and into the far corner! What an outstanding goal!
