After being frustrated by the Irish in the first half, Belgium broke through when Lukaku struck three minutes after the restart, atoning for his profligacy in front of goal in Monday's 2-0 loss to Italy.Midfielder Axel Witsel headed home in the 61st minute and Lukaku got his second and Belgium's third 20 minutes from the end as Belgium came good at last, albeit against a limited Ireland team who worked hard but created little.More than anything the win should reinvigorate Marc Wilmots' Belgium side before their last match with the Swedes and will certainly boost the confidence of Everton striker Lukaku.Belgium broke quickly with Lukaku releasing De Bruyne wide on the right. The Manchester City playmaker worked the ball back into the middle for Lukaku, who took a touch before beating goalkeeper Darren Randolph with a neatly-placed shot into the bottom-left corner from 20 yards.
