#BELIRLLukaku brace and Witsel header put Belgium three up

Belgium secured a crucial 3-0 win over Republic of Ireland in their Euro 2016 Group E clash on Saturday.
The Red Devils created a great opening in the 13th minute as Kevin De Bruyne delivered a terrific corner kick that was flicked on at the near post, but there was no one to pounce on the ball at the far post. 
De Bruyne again produced a great ball into the box that John O'Shea attempted to clear but sent it straight towards Eden Hazard who failed to show the composure needed to take advantage.
Another corner kick from De Bruyne unlocked the Ireland defence as he picked out Thomas Meunier, but his headed effort went wide of the near post.
The deadlock was finally broken three minutes into the second half as Belgium took the lead. Romelu Lukaku netted the opener with a great finish after none other than De Bruyne provided the assist.
The lead grew in the 61st minute as Axel Witsel scored the second. He beat his marker to run onto Meunier's cross, heading the ball beyond Darren Randolph.
Nine minutes later the vital three points were secured as Lukaku completed his brace. Meunier initiated the attack by dispossessing James McClean and then playing it on for Hazard. The Chelsea man placed his pass onto Lukaku's feet and he in turn placed the finish for a 3-0 win.
The victory sees Belgium move up to second position in the group, behind Italy.
