Lukaku, De Bruyne score as Belgium beat Switzerland


Paris (AFP) – Belgium continued their build-up to Euro 2016 with a 2-1 friendly victory over hosts Switzerland in Geneva on Saturday.

Blerim Dzemaili fired Switzerland into a 31st-minute lead at the Stade de Geneve, but Romelu Lukaku levelled shortly afterwards with Kevin De Bruyne scoring an 84th-minute winner for Belgium.

Belgium, second to Argentina in the FIFA world rankings, play Finland on June 1 and Norway four days later before heading to France ahead of their first appearance at the European Championship since 2000.

Marc Wilmots’ side will face Italy, Sweden and the Republic of Ireland in Group E.
