In a half-filled King Boudewijn Stadium in Brussels, Belgium defeated Saudi Arabia 4-0 on Tuesday night.
The Saudi’s began well with two corners in the first minute, but that outburst didn’t last long.

After that shaky start the Belgians took control when Romelu Lukaku started the goal parade on 13 minutes giving Belgium a 1-0 lead. Belgium remained in command and Lukaku scored his second of the game at 39 minutes. It was his 33rd goal in 66 appearances for Belgium.

The second half was a continuation of the first half with Michy Batshuayi making it 3-0 on 77 minutes and Kevin De Bruyne ending it at 4-0, a minute later.

It proved to be an easy win for the Belgians against a weak opponent, as they prepares for the FIFA World Cup, starting 14 June in Russia.
