Belgium have pulled a goal back against Italy through Romelu Lukaku, who converts from the penalty spot.

Roberto Martinez’s men found themselves up against it after goals from Nicolo Barella and Lorenzo Insigne gave the Italians a healthy advantage.

However, after Jeremy Doku turned on the burners against Italy defender Giovanni Di Lorenzo, Belgium earned themselves an opportunity to get back into the contest.

What a great time to score, too, right on the brink of half-time.

Martinez will have an opportunity to speak to his players ahead of a crucial 45 minutes that’ll determine whether they continue or crash out of Euro 2020 tonight.

Irrespective of who’s the victor after 90 minutes – or more – we’ve got another brilliant Euro 2020 game on our hands. What a chuffing tournament.
