Some fans wowed by Manchester City midfielder's 'world class' display for his country

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.

As well as scoring, De Bruyne made 65 passes including four key passes with an 81.5 percent accuracy, delivered three accurate long balls, and made four successful dribbles.
