MOSCOW, Russia (AP) — Romelu Lukaku scored just before halftime to give Belgium a 3-1 lead over Tunisia and equal Cristiano Ronaldo's tally of four goals so far at the World Cup.

Thomas Meunier played the ball through the defence for Lukaku to beat the offside trap and flick the ball over goalkeeper Farouk Ben Mustapha.

Earlier, Eden Hazard opened the scoring from the penalty spot before Lukaku made it 2-0 for Belgium. Tunisia cut the deficit when Dylan Bronn headed in from a free-kick.

Bronn soon went off injured and was later joined on the sidelines by Tunisia defender Syam Ben Youssef.

Lukaku also scored two goals in Belgium's opening 3-0 win over Panama. Ronaldo has scored four goals in Portugal's first two games.
