Belgium defeat dominant Canadians

DOHA, Belgium opened their Qatar 2022 campaign with a hard-fought and, tough win over Canada.

The 2018 bronze medalists spent much of this Group F encounter on the back foot, pinned back by an adventurous and energetic side that managed over 21 efforts on goal to their illustrious opponents’ nine.

Michy Batshuayi scored the only goal in the 44th minute after Alphonso Davies had a penalty saved.
