Belgium, a whirlwind against Romania

A Belgian whirlwind was unleashed over Romania. A fast, vertical and high-tempo game defeated the Romanian resistance. Belgium atoned for its poor debut and achieved its first victory in the European Championship. The triumph of the Red Devils put Group E red hot. The four teams (Belgium, Romania, Ukraine and Slovakia) are tied on points with the last round remaining. Tielemans and De Bruyne were the authors of the Belgian goals to certify a well-deserved victory.

After the defeat against Slovakia in the debut, Domenico Tedesco, Belgium coach, shook the shaker. He introduced four changes to the starting eleven and his team responded like a rocket with a stellar output. Before reaching two minutes he had already opened the scoring after a textbook shot by Lukaku and a sensational cross shot from the edge of the area by Tielemans, one of the novelties. Another of those who entered the lineup, Sevilla’s Lukebakio, was about to increase the lead but found opposition from the Romanian goalkeeper Nita, the best of his team against the Belgian waves that were coming at them.

In the stands of Cologne the Romanian troops were in charge but on the pitch only Belgium ruled, which at times exceeded 70 percent of the possession. But he didn’t just have the ball for the sake of it, but to direct it like a flamethrower towards the opponent’s goal. De Bruyne became the architect of the big occasions and his Manchester City teammate Doku overflowed on his side. The danger to Romania was relentless and the outcome was clearly in its best interests. Going into the interval with only a goal down was a miracle but the Belgians, like the first day, were lacking aim. Lukaku, great at acting as an offensive anchor, ran into a defender on another clear occasion.

Meanwhile, Romania hardly showed any offensive signs, although it is true that from the half hour mark until half-time the Belgian storm subsided.

After the refreshment, both teams appeared on the grass with renewed strength and the match became a back-and-forth affair. From the Belgian monologue to the large estates to take advantage of. Options for De Bruyne, who ran into goalkeeper Nita, and for Lukaku, who scored. However, his goal was disallowed for offside. The Belgian striker did not score but was a permanent nightmare for the defense.

On the other side of the field Man had the opportunity to tie, but goalkeeper Koen Casteels prevented it. Romania would regret it, as it had to start taking risks to scratch some point. But that step forward left him more exposed and even more so if his defenses did not maintain concentration. That’s what happened and De Bruyne caught a bad header backwards to persist and score the second in the 79th minute.

With the victory of Belgium, the four teams in the group are tied with one day remaining

Romania could no longer recover and everything remains pending on the last day. On Wednesday Belgium will face Ukraine and Romania will face Slovakia. Maximum emotion.
