"If we want to go far in the World Cup, we'll have to be as solid as we were tonight and keep our energy".

Hazard said, "Salah is a friend and I wish he will recover before the World Cup".

Manchester United duo Romelu Lukaku and Marouane Fellaini were also on the scoresheet, the former becoming Belgium's all-time leading scorer with 31 goals, breaking a three-way tie with countrymen Bernard Voorhoof and Paul Van Himst.

"I spoke with Salah after the Champions League final and sent him a message, as I said he is my friend and I want to see him in the World Cup".

World Cup-bound Panama saw their hopes of a morale-boosting pre-tournament win crumble after just four minutes in a 1-0 defeat to Norway on Wednesday. Egyptians are pinning their hopes on Salah.

"Egypt are a good team".

Martinez admitted that he had been extremely concerned during Wednesday's match following several heavy tackles on Hazard but the Chelsea winger later revealed that Egypt's approach had actually helped him.

Now rehabbing his shoulder, the 44-goal hero has been included in Egypt's squad for the World Cup - which gets underway against Uruguay in the second game in Group A on 15 June.

Belgium continued to dominate after the interval and midfielder Fellaini added a third in stoppage time, after some clever footwork from Chelsea forward Michy Batshuayi.

Marouane Fellaini added a third in stoppage-time to complete a strong performance by the hosts, who underlined their status as one of the favourites in Russian Federation.

Belgium coach Roberto Martinez hailed improvements in his side's "togetherness" as well as their attacking performance. His injury raised fears about his chances for appearing with Egypt at the World Cup, which opens in Russian Federation next week.

"I don't think we are physically, tactically and mentally ready. and that's why the Costa Rica game will be important", he said.
