Chelsea duo Eden Hazard and Michy Batshuayi were on target as Belgium beat Tunisia 5-2 on Saturday.

Hazard became the first Chelsea player to score in the 2018 World Cup when he drilled a penalty into the bottom corner to open the scoring after just six minutes.

Hazard made it 4-1 for Belgium after controlling a pass from Kevin De Bruyne with his chest before rounding Tunisia goalkeeper Ben Mustapha and finishing well under pressure.

With Belgium enjoying a comfortable lead, Hazard came off for Michy Batshuayi with 67 minutes on the clock. It was Batshuayi’s first appearance of the tournament.

Batshuayi looked sharp in the 22 minutes he was on for. He timed his run into the box perfectly to meet a Youri Tielemans cross and volley left-footed into the bottom corner to make it 5-1, before Tunisia scored a consolation in added time.

Chelsea goalkeeper Thibaut Courtois also started for Belgium.
