OMG! Belgium Reveal Injury Problem For Romelu Lukaku And Eden Hazard

Belgium are set to make changes in the Starting XI against England due to injury worries.

The Red Devils thrashed Tunisia 5-2 this afternoon with Romelu Lukaku and Eden Hazard scoring twice.

Lukaku has picked up a ankle knock while Hazard has a calf problem.

"It will be major changes against England," Roberto Martinez said.

Martinez insisted he has no thought whether it is better to finish second or first in a bid to avoid Germany or Brazil in the quarter-finals.

"Football has got a strange knack of punishing you when you don't treat things professionally," he said.

Lukaku who scored was substituted in the Second-half after picking up an ankle knock and will be assessed on Sunday.

Michy Batshuayi who came on with 20 minutes left and scored the last goal for Belgium.

Dries Martens, replaced with 5 minutes to go by youngster Youri Tielemans, is also carrying an ankle injury.

Martinez then revealed he is satisfied with a performance that showed further evidence of the team playing as a unit.

"Today we're allowed to celebrate," he said of the first time the country had scored five goals in a World Cup match.

"The whole of Belgium should celebrate."

"It was a great game to watch as a neutral but that doesn't mean that we are the finished article. There are very many things that we need to work on," Martinez said.

"And our work will start tomorrow morning."

Also, he underlined a more stunning performance from players who have long shown their individual talents at club level but has showed again for their country.

"What we saw was a team prepared to suffer, prepared to work for each other and we look well balanced in that respect," said Martinez.

"When you've got that, then the individuals can show their talent ... Today I was delighted with the attitude.

"Talent on its own is not enough."
