Romelu Lukaku gave a good account of himself on Monday as he banged in two goals to help Belgium to a 3-0 win over Panama.
After firing blanks in the first half, Belgium turned on style in the second half as Dries Mertens broke the deadlock two minutes after the restart.
Lukaku then came up with goals in the 69th and 75th to give Belgium a dream start and justify their ratings as one of the favourites for the top prize in Russia.
With three goals and three points in the kitty, Belgium are blazing the trail in Group G that also houses England and Tunisia.
