Eden Hazard and Romelu Lukaku scored the goals as Belgium got their Nations League campaign off to a winning start in Iceland, BBC reports.

Lukaku was bundled over by Sverrir Ingi Ingason in the box for a penalty that Chelsea midfielder Hazard converted to open the scoring.

The Manchester United forward got on the scoresheet himself two minutes later with a close-range finish.

He then added a third with a deft flick nine minutes from full-time.

It was Belgium’s first game in the new competition and ended a run of 13 competitive matches unbeaten at home for Iceland, who were hammered 6-0 by Switzerland away in their opening Nations League game on Saturday.
