Belgium bounce back in Euros with win over Romania


Belgium got their Euro 2024 campaign back on track after an impressive 2-0 win against Romania on Saturday, with goals from Youri Tielemans and Kevin De Bruyne.

Romelu Lukaku was the architect of the first Belgian goal and teed Tielemans up perfectly to fire home a superb effort from just inside the area in the second minute.

De Bruyne had chances throughout a polished Belgian performance and doubled the lead with 10 minutes left when he latched on to a long ball from goalkeeper Koen Casteels and found the net from seven metres out.

The result leaves all four teams in Group E on three points going into Wednesday's final matches, when Belgium take on Ukraine and Romania face Slovakia.
