Meunier missed the semi-final loss to France due to suspension.

He scored after only four minutes before Hazard grabbed a late second as the Red Devils did better than the side that came fourth at the 1986 edition in Mexico.

Belgium have now defeated England twice in two weeks, having beaten them 1-0 in their group stage encounter.
