After the matches against the Ivory Coast and England, the Red Devils in Reykjavik started with some doubts about the match.
After barely ten minutes, captain Romelu Lukaku took away those doubts. With his back to the goal, he took a ball from Alderweireld cleverly. What followed was “vintage Lukaku”. He turned free in the box which left goalkeeper Runarsson no chance.
Surprisingly, Iceland came into the game a bit better after the 0-1. At a time when Belgium had 80% of the ball, the home team suddenly gave up. Carrasco was surprised in the back, Saevarsson aimed well next to Mignolet in goal.
The Belgians were briefly taken aback by the victim, but before half time Lukaku (who else ?!) put things in order from the spot.
After the interruption, one long yawn began. Only one minute before the end of the match, Carrasco had the only chance of the second half. His handsome individual number did not get the finish it deserved.
Not icing on the cake, but three points extra for the Red Devils, who are again the leader in their group thanks to Denmark’s victory against England. The English had to manage with 10 men after half an hour after a red card for Maguire. Eriksen scored the only goal from the spot.
