Follow along for live updates and highlights of goals and key plays as Belgium faces Tunisia in the World Cup group stage.

Belgium has its sights on another three-point haul when it takes on Tunisia in the second game of Group G play at the World Cup.

The Red Devils pulled away from Panama to win convincingly in their opener, taking a 3-0 result behind a goal from Dries Mertens and another two from Romelu Lukaku. The Belgian golden generation has high hopes at this World Cup and can take a step closer to the knockout stage by taking care of Tunisia.

The Eagles of Carthage may not be such an easy opponent, though. They held up against England despite conceding an early goal, earning an equalizer and nearly a point before succumbing to a last-gasp header by Harry Kane. In order to keep their hope of survival alive, they’ll need to play with smarts and desperation against a stellar group foe.
