Onana Makes World Cup Debut In Belgium Win

Amadou Onana enjoyed a winning World Cup debut, stepping off the bench to help Belgium to a 1-0 victory over Canada at the Ahmed bin Ali Stadium.

Onana replaced Leicester City's Youri Tielemans at half-time of the Group F clash with the Red Devils leading courtesy of Michy Batshuayi's 44th-minute strike.

The 21-year-old midfielder was controversially booked 11 minutes into the second period, having been adjudged to have fouled Stephen Eustáquio while shielding possession from the Canada midfielder.

But Onana played a crucial role in the heart of midfield - alongside Axel Witsel - as Belgium battled their way past an impressive Canada outfit to pick up three points in their opening fixture.

It was Onana's third senior cap for Belgium, after making his first two appearances for his nation in UEFA Nations League contests earlier this year.

Next up for Belgium is a clash with Morocco on Sunday 27 November, before taking on Croatia four days later.
