Belgium's Dries Mertens shaves off his father's facial hair after scoring the winner vs Algeria

Belgium played their first world cup game in 12 years and the young squad was pressurized in the starting moments of the game when Algeria scored a penalty.
More significantly the Belgium forward Dries Mertens had a bet with his father. He shaved off his old man’s facial hair after he scored the winning goal for the Red Devils.

This moment was caught on camera and uploaded on Instagram by Dries Mertens himself as he used an electrical razor to shave off his father’s facial hair.
