Romelu Lukaku hit a late equaliser as Belgium struggled to a 1-1 draw with Finland in their final warm-up game in Brussels.

Marc Wilmots' men dominated possession and had a whopping 32 shots on goal. However, they found themselves behind when Kasper Hämäläinen netted for the visitors eight minutes into the second half following a swift counter-attack.

Chelsea duo Thibaut Courtois and Eden Hazard, Kevin de Bruyne of Manchester City, Tottenham's Jan Vertonghen and Manchester United's Marouane Fellaini all started for the hosts. Christian Benteke also missed a glorious chance before Lukaku pounced.
