Belgium Show Quality Ahead of England Clash

Last updated : 08 September 2020 By Three Lions

The Red Devils of Belgium eased to victory in their opening two Nations League matches with Roberto Martinez's side showing just why they are considered favourites to win the delayed European Championships next summer.

Ahead of their meeting with England in October, Belgium eased past Denmark before hammering Iceland at home.

That win was achieved with Eden Hazard on the substitiute's bench and no Romelu Lukaku, Martinez still able to call on quality players such as Kevin De Bruyne and Dries Mertens in attacking areas.

World Cup finalists France and Croatia amazingly played out the same 4-2 scoreline when they met in Paris while Cristiano Ronaldo scored his 100th international goal as part of a brace in Portugal's comfortable win away to Sweden.
