The Red Devil won their opening game against Canada in the Group F game of the 2022 FIFA World Cup, holding at Qatar.
Belgium’s forward, Batshuayi scores the opening goal for his side despite many attempts from the Canadians to score. Canada, during the game showed a lack of quality with their last couple of efforts.
The result means the Red Devils move top of Group F with Croatia and Morocco both tied on one point.
Canada’s pace caused Belgium’s aging backline a wealth of problems and they had the chance to take the lead in the 13th minute from the penalty spot after a Yannick Carrasco handball at a corner.
