Belgium completed its Euro 2020 group campaign with a 2-0 win over Finland on Monday. 

In the match at Saint Petersburg Stadium in St. Petersburg, Russia, the deadlock was broken in the 74th minute when Finland’s goalkeeper Lukas Hradecky scored an own goal.

Seven minutes later, Romelu Lukaku scored Belgium’s second goal, and the team won Group B with nine points.

Lukaku found the net in the 65th minute, but after a video assistant referee (VAR) check, it was ruled offside.

In addition, a girl invaded the pitch for a while near the end of the match.

In another group match, Denmark beat Russia 4-1 to qualify as runners-up in Group B with 3 points.

Finland, who collected the three points, have to wait for the group stage to win a place among the four best third-place sides to advance to the knockout stages.
