Belgium started well by creating a few small opportunities. Egypt was very hard in the tackles, resulting in two yellow cards. Romelu Lukaku opened the scoring after a great action by Eden Hazard. The same Hazard scored the 2-0 ten minutes later.

In the second period, the four changes slowed the initial tempo. The Belgians were then no longer in danger and Marouane Fellaini made it 3-0 at the very end of the match.

Tickets are still available for the last friendly vs Costa Rica on Monday.
