Debruyne(7) celebrates after scoring

In a historic 3-2 win over Germany on Tuesday, Belgium’s Kevin De Bruyne led his team with one goal and two assists.

Kevin De Bruyne was in a clinical mood as he found Yannick Carrasco for Belgium’s first goal in plenty of space and then slid through Romelu Lukaku for his fourth goal in two games, all in the span of nine minutes. 

Niclas Fullkrug’s penalty just before halftime gave Hansi Flick’s team a chance to come back, but they were unable to capitalize on an otherwise strong second half.

Leandro Trossard, who had once again been given plenty of room on the counterattack, came on to great effect. He hooked a pass back for De Bruyne to finish deftly and end the game. The game finished 3-2 despite Serge Gnabry scoring a late consolation, which made for a tense finish.
