GAMES - OTHER Belgium, with Anderlecht player Steven Defour on the bench, beat Bosnia Herzegovina yesterday with 3-1. The Red Devils remain on course for qualification for the upcoming European Championship in France.

Belgium is currently the best European football country and is ranked second on the FIFA ranking (behind Argentina). This means the Red Devils had no other option than beating Bosnia in Brussels. Belgium did not play a convincing game, but obtained a clear win anyway. Bosnia took the best start though and opened the score after 15 minutes of play. Edin Dzeko surprised the Belgian defence and headed the 0-1 against the net.

Belgium reacted and took control over the match. The pressure increased and on a corner kick, Marouane Fellaini equalised with a hard header: 1-1. The Red Devils continued to put Bosnia under pressure and right before half time, De Bruyne scored with an effort from outside the box: 2-1.

The visitors tried to turn the tide at the beginning of the second half, but the Belgian defence and goalkeeper Courtois didn't allow the equaliser. When the Bosnian offensive started to diminish, Belgium had several good chances of increasing the gap. Eventually Hazard scored the third goal, from the penalty spot.
