Michy Batshuayi was leading the Belgian attack in the absence of injured talisman Romelu Lukaku. While he was wasteful too, he scored against the run of play on the stroke of halftime. But his goal was enough to see off Canada 1-0.

The Canadians who were making their first World Cup appearance after 36 years were woeful in front goal. They had 21 attempts on target to Belgium’s 9. Yet, they ended up on the losing side. The win put the Red Devils top of Group F ahead of Morocco and Croatia who earlier drew 0-0.

Canada looked as if they would register their long-awaited first goal. Belgium’s Yannick Carrasco handled the ball in the 11th minute and Alphonso Davies stepped up to take the penalty. But Courtois, one of the world’s best goalkeepers, denied Davies a historic score by stopping his weak spot-kick.

The Canadian attack continued to press. Their speed created havoc in the Belgian defence and kept Courtois busy throughout the first half. But against the run of play, Belgium took the lead when Batshuayi broke between two defenders. What seemed like a missed pass ended up for Batshuayo. He ran on to the long ball and shot past goalkeeper Milan Borjan in the 44th minute.

The second half was more even with both sides generating chances but unable to score.
