The Belgium team had attempted to hit top gear on time during the competition, however was was firing on all cylinders to beat Hungary 4-0 and progress to a quarter-final.

Belgium now meet Wales in Lille looking for a place in the semi-finals, but on the back of this promising performance coach Marc Wilmots will be looking for improvements in front of goal.

Led by captain and man-of-the-match Eden Hazard, Belgium dominated the Hungarians but struggled to put the game to bed, with Toby Alderweireld’s header making it only 1-0 at the break.

But the game broke open late in the second half, with goals to Michy Batshuayai, Hazard and Yannick Carrasco blowing the scoreline out.

Belgium go into the European Championship quarter-finals for the first time since losing the 1980 final.

Hungary impressively won their group but if they struck any fear into the hearts of Belgium’s players, it did not show.

Despite their attractive football, a lack of clinical finishing left Belgium at risk during an encouraging Hungary fightback in the second half.

Kiraly did well to block De Bruyne’s effort with his feet after he powered on to Lukaku’s sweeping pass behind the Hungarian defence.
