Severely beaten by the Netherlands on the first day of the League of Nations, Belgium spent their nerves on Poland. Once again at home, the Red Devils, however badly embarked after a goal from the inevitable Robert Lewandowski, were able to turn the tide by showing themselves irresistible offensively after the break (6-1). This festival, which must have pleased the supporters, allows Belgium to launch its competition. In the standings, she comes back up to her victim of the evening, but remains three points behind the Netherlands, who won against Wales (2-1).
After Robert Lewandowski’s opener, who still made his science speak in front of the frame (0-1, 28th), we thought that Belgium was still going to face a terrible disillusion, while it got into the game much better. The fact is that the Poles were initially able to show good defensive discipline, despite the inspirations of Kevin De Bruyne and Eden Hazard, in particular by locking the axis. Then they were realistic, thanks to their star striker. There was everything to upset the Red Devils, lacking in confidence.

Fortunately for the Belgians, Axel Witsel equalized just before the break (1-1, 42nd) to help his team get their heads back. And, in view of the spectacle offered on the return from the locker room, it served as a real detonator. Because the waves began to follow one another on the cage of poor Bartłomiej Drągowski, who did what he could (57th), before sinking along with his selection. Hazard, who is gaining momentum, perfectly shifted De Bruyne, the other maestro, to take the lead (2-1, 59th). While Leandro Trossard made the break, with a good sequence (3-1, 73rd).
Cornered and unable to retaliate, Poland quickly dropped the case, especially after the exit of Lewandowski (69th). The Belgians therefore seized the opportunity to drive home the point to reassure themselves. Trossard, again, took advantage of a corner played two with Yannick Carrasco to find the opposite skylight from the left lane, a sublime goal (4-1, 80th). As much as the tense and distant strike of Leander Dendoncker (5-1, 83rd)? That remains to be seen.
To complete Belgium’s offensive masterpiece, Loïs Openda added his name to the scoreboard, on a service from Thorgan Hazard (6-1, 90th + 3). This result will be good for the heads of the Belgians, after the doubts that appeared against the Netherlands. Still need to confirm.
