    Hungary have been entertaining and can leave with their heads held high...especially, everyone's favourite dad.

    Hungary really don't serve to lose by 4. They especially deserved to score at least 1.

    Great performance from Belgium. Finally seeing what this team can do. Hungary played very well also, but were just outclassed by the attacking talent on Belgium.

    Hazard had an incredible game. I'm still frustrated we didn't see this level from him for Chelsea in 15-16, because he played amazing in 14-15.

    That was probably Hazard's best game for Belgium

    Good game overall, apart from a 20 min spell early second half

    That is the most lopsided score of a more-or-less even game... :amazed:

    Good to see Belgium finally put the game away near the end.

    How does everyone feel about the Red Devils vs Wales?

    Wales should get absolutely battered playing a real team for the first time, so I'm quite looking forward to it.

    Commentating was just mindless in this one.

    "Look out Germany, look out Spain, look out Italy Belgium are coming"


    Um, Italy entirely dismantled Belgium in the opener with that game being the only challenging opponent Belgium have faced.

    As far as Hazard, good game, sure, but lets be clear here that the Hungary defending was expectedly weak.

    On 2nd goal the corner is turned away out of harms way, Hazard gets the ball, in a position where he is defended by two opponents, who somehow just stand there and watch as he simply pushes the ball forward and beat them both to the ball, not only did they not even challenge for that ball they allow him enough time for a cross..:amazed: Just awful defending. Definition of being caught flat footed.

    On Hazard goal he walks around every Hungary *defender* on the pitch before wrapping the ball around the goalie in the one spot he could put it. Great play, but just awful defending, questionable goaltending on the play.

    Belgium really benefitting from weak side draw. They get an easy opponent, then another in Wales. Meanwhile Spain Italy have to play each other in the same round that teams like Ireland and Wales are playing each other.:shakehead

    Sham bracket.

    Yeah although they basically scored on their only chance, which also happened to be an extremely dumb turnover by (I think) Nainggolan. But tbf we also didn't create much in that game

    Wales have played us very though in both the WC and EC qualifying, we only beat them once in 4 games

    ...Well, they did quite well against England despite losing (at the last minute).

    ...

    Wait, real team?

    Hazard was spectacular today... I've heard people already trying to knock down the performance "because it's Hungary"... well, it was a freaking exhibition, Hungary or not, he was sublime.
    If he played like this always he would be considered a top-3 player no doubt.

    Belgium has to break through, right now only way they're going to silence people.

    Given the bracket, they'd have to win the whole thing. Beating Wales won't quiet the skeptics, beating one of Poland/Portugal probably won't either completely.

    Belgium not being in the final with the bracket given to them would truly be embarrassing. Hard to imagine them having an easier way to a major tournament final then this one. No offense to Wales and Poland/Portugal but those countries are one player teams for the most part. Belgium is a far more complete squad and should feel very confident in the position they are at now.

    On this still, you're right. My replay showed otherwise here. :dunno:
    Again, not a big deal anyway.
