The game was fairly even in the first half, however, both teams tried to open the scoring, in the case of the Canadians it was first knowing that they would find one of the best goalkeepers of the moment, Thibaut Courtois.
Possession of the ball was low for Belgium compared to the rival, little by little those led by Roberto Martínez were raising the intensity. There was little left for the first half to close 0-0 but thanks to the speed of Michy Batshuayi he overcame the Canadian defense and scored (44').
After the game resumed, Canada tirelessly searched for an equalizer, but despite several arrivals on goal, Courtois deflected the balls as a fairly simple task.
John Herdman's men had many clear chances to even beat Belgium and their eleven really failed a few times, it wasn't the players' fault, all the credit goes to the Real Madrid goalkeeper.
Belgium with this victory seizes the leadership of group F with three points, while the second place is occupied by Croatia, followed by Morocco and ends the list with Canada.
