The "red devil's" went in front in the 37th minutes after Yannick Carrasco shot was deflected and went past Hugo lloris to put Belgium in the lead.

Roberto Martinez side doubled the lead in the first half to put the Belgians two goals up as Chelsea man Romelu Lukaku fired in a heavy shot in the box just three minutes later after Carrasco scored to make it 2-0 just five minutes before half time.

With the lead after half time the Belgians are already one foot in the finals to face Spain if they secure the victory and also would end the French record against them in an Unbeaten 40years run against them.

The second half started well in the favour of the French side as they mount more pressure on the Belgian side to bounce back in the game with remarkable efforts to score as they kept pressurizing the Belgian team with determination, courage and believe to be able to get something out of the match.

The deadlock was broken as France scored their first in the game after a wonderful pass from klyian Mbappe who found Karim Benzema to make it 2-1 in the game.

The French team were relentless as they keep on pursuing for a second goal in the game with so much pressure coming from them leaving the Belgian in total confusion as they look shaky to defend their lead.

France eventually got the equalizing goal after they were awarded a penalty when Youri Tielemans have been said to fouled Antoine Griezmann in the box after a VAR review which saw klyian Mbappe step up to take the spot kick to make it 2-2 in the 69th minutes.

Belgium went back in front with a wonderful shot coming from Romelu Lukaku but that effort was cancelled after a VAR review showing its an offside goal.
