The only goal in the match was scored in the 44th minute by Michy Batshuayi.

Canada returned to the pitch in the second half with more vigour creating chances in the 18 yard of Belgium but the chances were not of quality for goals.

Belgium on the other hand tried to double the lead but were slack in finding the back of the net.

Belgium tops Group F with three points while Croatia and Morocco are one points after playing a goalless draw during the day.
