BELGIUM STAYED HOT on the heels of Wales at the top of Euro 2016 qualifying Group B with a win in Brussels tonight.

In front of a home crowd at the King Baudouin Stadium, Marc Wilmots’ team fell behind to an Edin Dzeko header after 15 minutes.

However, Manchester United’s Marouane Fellaini headed home from a Kevin de Bruyne corner eight minutes later.

Just before half-time, De Bruyne, who joined Man City from Wolfsburg for €74 million (£54m) last week, then added a second with a low drive from 30 yards out.

Chelsea’s Eden Hazard wrapped up the three points by dispatching a penalty 12 minutes from time after he had been fouled in the box by Ognjen Vranjes.
