Some fans wowed by Manchester City midfielder's 'world class' display for his country
Manchester City star Kevin De Bruyne delivered a masterclass for Belgium in their World Cup qualifier last night.
The 29-year-old started for the Red Devils in their meeting with Wales in Leuven.
Although the visitors opened the scoring in the 10th minute through Harry Wilson, De Bruyne got his nation back into the game with a superb goal from distance.
Following the City ace’s 22nd-minute rocket, Thorgan Hazard then struck six minutes later to take a 2-1 lead into the break.
Belgium then struck again in the second half as Romelu Lukaku netted a penalty after Chris Mepham brought down Dries Mertens.
Victory saw Belgium record a 13th straight competitive win at home and go second in Group E behind Czech Republic, who won 6-2 in Estonia.
City fans and neutrals alike were impressed by the midfielder’s efforts and took to social media to praise him:
KDB is running the whole show as usual.

De Bruyne is a bigger legend for Belgium than Hazard imo

Gutted we lost but de bruyne was the difference for Belgium. Losing Allen early didn’t help us he’s one of our key players, Add Ramsey and Ben Davies to that it was always gonna be a struggle🏴

Kevin De Bruyne has made 16 goals contributions in his last 10 games for Belgium. Absolute world class.

Kevin De Bruyne should be given the Ballon D’or if he somehow carries this shambles of a Belgium team to the Euros.
