Belgium Defeats Romania 2-0 in Euro 2024

Belgium got their Euro 2024 campaign up and running as Youri Tielemans and Kevin De Bruyne scored to beat Romania 2-0 to earn the Red Devils their first points of the tournament.

Reeling from their unfortunate yet disappointing loss to Slovakia in their first game, Domenico Tedesco’s side came out all guns blazing and they were rewarded after 73 seconds, as Tielemans blasted home Romelu Lukaku’s lay-off from the edge of the area.

Belgium, led by the impressive De Bruyne and living confidently through the direct running of Jeremy Doku, felt nerves and frustration as their lead remained at one goal despite an impressive, collective team display.

Belgium secured their first win of Euro 2024 with a 2-0 victory over Romania. Youri Tielemans opened the scoring early on, and Kevin De Bruyne sealed the win late in the game. Romelu Lukaku had a goal ruled out by VAR, adding to his frustrations with the technology in this tournament. Despite the win, all four teams in Group E are level on points, setting up a dramatic conclusion to the group stage.

Belgium’s performance was praised for their midfield control and attacking threat, with De Bruyne and Tielemans standing out. Jeremy Doku was also highlighted for his pace and creativity, even though he didn’t get on the scoresheet. Romania put up a strong fight, with goalkeeper Florin Nita making several crucial saves to keep the scoreline respectable.

With one round of group stage games remaining, Belgium will face Ukraine, while Romania will take on Slovakia. Both teams will be looking for another win to secure their spot in the knockout stages of the tournament.
