STOCKHOLM (AP) -- Goals by Romelu Lukaku and Eden Hazard gave Belgium a 2-0 win over Sweden in a World Cup warm-up game on Sunday. After a slow start, the Belgians took advantage of a Swedish defensive mistake that allowed Axel Witsel to set up Lukaku in the 34th minute. Hazard easily rolled in the second goal in the 78th minute from a pass by Kevin De Bruyne. Sweden, which played without injured star striker Zlatan Ibrahimovic, had their best chance in the 68th minute when Jimmy Durmaz hit the crossbar after a corner. Expectations are high for Belgium's young team ahead of the World Cup, where the Red Devils will face Russia, South Korea and Algeria in Group H. Sweden failed to qualify for the World Cup after losing to Portugal in a playoff.
