Martinez not anxious despite ankle knock keeping Lukaku from training

Roberto Martínez admits Romelu Lukaku suffered ligament damage in win

Roberto Martínez admits Romelu Lukaku suffered ligament damage in win

The short steps before kicking the ball just like a tennis player before they hit the ball - they take short steps before they hit it and it gives you more accuracy.

Under Martinez, who has hardly set the world alight with this extremely talented Belgium squad despite Saturday's win, Lukaku has scored a remarkable 23 goals in 20 games and is now joint top goalscorer for the tournament alongside Ronaldo. Yet a troubled start for Germany means the Group G victor risks coming across either the defending champions or a feared Brazil earlier in the knockout rounds.

But Martinez must urgently take a closer look at his team's defensive operation which a few times allowed the Tunisians to take a stab at Thibaut Courtois' goal.

Since England's 6-1 defeat of Panama on Sunday, both are sure to progress from Group G to the last 16 with, for now, identical points and goal tallies for and against.

Belgium's first two goals, including an Eden Hazard penalty, in a span of 10 minutes were reward for exactly that early pressure, along with many more scoring chances. A second yellow would mean they would be suspended for the round of 16 game.

"We want to have a good performance and keep a winning mentality and not drop our level".

Northern California wildfire jumps single road leading to rural communities
A wildfire that was not contained grew to 21 square kilometres and destroyed at least 22 homes and buildings, the agency reported. The Pawnee fire was reported after 5 p.m. and was threatening the Spring Valley Lakes subdivision east of Clearlake Oaks.

But Southgate said England also had to "decide what is our priority".

ESPN's Nick Ames shares his thoughts on Belgium's dominant display against Tunisia which saw them top group G. Substitute Michy Batshuayi also got on the scoresheet, so Belgium have a class replacement ready to go.

He played down the advantages of not having to travel as far from their Moscow base, saying Russian logistics had been "fantastic", and he warned that being too tricky in football can backfire.

"He's here to try to help the team to win and to fulfil his role".

However, if Brazil finish top of Group E and Germany come second in Group F, whoever finishes second in England's group would avoid them both and plot a favourable route to the semi-finals.

Roberto Martinez has revealed that Belgium are sweating on the fitness of three star men ahead of their World Cup showdown with England.
