Belgium coach Roberto Martinez has admitted that his team failed to control the game despite their 5-2 win over Tunisia which ensured they stayed top of World Cup group G on Saturday.
Martinez watched from the sideline as his side cruised to a 5-2 win as Eden Hazard, Romelu Lukaku both scored a brace while Michy Batshuayi came off the bench to score the fifth goal.
“[Romelu] will try to score as many goals as he can but not at all costs. I thought he was incisive, in the right position, in a confident mood, in front of goal he was as clinical as you might expect,” Martinez said in his post match interview.
“Many things can be better. This was a game that suited our style, you have to give credit to Tunisia. They wanted to win from the beginning, press high up.
“The credit that we deserve is that we took those opportunities well. We are still growing. With a two-goal lead we should have controlled the game a little bit better.”
Belgium will face England in their last group game next Wednesday.Copyright © 2020 Completesports.com All rights reserved. The information contained in Completesports.com may not be published, broadcast, rewritten, or redistributed without the prior written authority of Completesports.com.
