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.
