Football pundits underline the strong overall performance of the Belgian team. Not just the star players like Lukaku, Hazard and De Bruyne were shining, but also wingers Thomas Meunier (right) and Yannick Carrasco (left). They had been criticized after the opening game. Also, the substitutes Michy Batshuayi, Marouane Fellaini and Youri Tielemans had a good performance, a delight for coach Roberto Martinez.
"It's a delight to see this team play", Martinez (photo below) said. "It's not easy to score so many goals (eight, red.) in two World Cup games. The boys are prepared to work for one another."
Lukaku had a big smile after the match, but kept his feet on the ground. "I think we can do even better. The most important thing in a tournament like this, is that you can improve and do better than your previous game. This is what we did today. And we have to do better against England."
So what is it that can improve? "We could have made 8 goals today, we should stay focused each minute. When you played against better countries, you need to stay fully focussed."
