3 games, 9 points, Belgium’s Golden Generation topped group G when they defeated England in the final group-stage match of this tournament.

Belgium, despite struggling against Panama in the first-half, have managed to display a commanding performance in the tournament so far.

Their captain Eden Hazard had only scored 12 goals for Chelsea in the English Premier League. However, he has managed to put forth good performances for Belgium in the World Cup 2018.

He looked sharp in the group stage matches and has already bagged 2 goals to his name, both against Tunisia. He did well to create chaos in the opposition half and gelled well with midfielders and attackers against Panama and Tunisia.
