WORLD CUP: Batshuayi fires Belgium to opening win against Canada


Michy Batshuayi steered Belgium to an unconvincing 1-0 victory over Canada in their opening game of the 2022 World Cup campaign.

Playing in just their second ever World Cup finals, Canada missed a golden opportunity to take an early lead, as Alphonso Davies had a penalty saved.

And Batshuayi took full advantage just before half-time as he fired in the only goal of the game, sealing the Red Devils a narrow Group F win in Qatar.

Canada lost all three of their games without scoring in their only other World Cup finals appearance in 1986, and their wait for a first point and first goal goes on into their next game against Croatia on Sunday. (Skysports)
