Belgium booked their place in the Euro 2016 quarter-finals in style with a 4-0 win over Hungary in Toulouse.
Toby Alderweireld gave Belgium the lead and they went on to waste a glut of chances in an entertaining encounter before two goals in 94 seconds in the latter stages from substitute Michy Batshuayi and Eden Hazard put the result beyond doubt. Yannick Carrasco wrapped up the scoring with a fourth in stoppage time.
Marc Wilmots' team will now head to Lille to take on Wales, with the winner of that tie facing either Poland or Portugal in the semifinals.
Belgium started the game well, the first goal came in the 10th minute as the Hungary defence fell asleep. De Bruyne was brought down 30 yards from goal and it was the Manchester City man who curled in a brilliant, curling cross that the unmarked Alderweireld headed home.
Lukaku was taken off in the 73rd minute to be replaced by Batshuayi for his tournament debut, and within five minutes the Marseille forward had doubled Belgium's lead.
The ball was worked to Hazard on the left following a corner and he squared to Batshuayi six yards out, who had been left completely unmarked, to finish with ease.
And moments later the result was put beyond doubt as Hazard capped a superb display with a fine solo goal. The Chelsea forward cut across the box to open up the space before planting a perfect shot past Kiraly into the opposite corner.
Akos Elek saw an effort saved by Courtois but Belgium broke up the other end and De Bruyne fed in another sub, Carrasco, who burst through on goal and slotted under Kiraly in injury time to put the gloss on the scoreline.
