THIBAUT COURTOIS Saw a Burke strike go by his post early on and wasn’t troubled thereafter. Hardly involved until a late scramble saw him claim a deserved clean sheet. 6

TOBY ALDERWEIRELD Saw plenty of the ball as Belgium built from the back. Didn’t have to break sweat defensively. 7

VINCENT KOMPANY Rarely under any kind of pressure as he dealt with what little Scotland could throw at him comfortably. 7

JAN VERTONGHEN Certainly wasn’t his toughest encounter of the season. Passed a straightforward test with flying colours. 7

THOMAS MEUNIER Shrugged off an early knock and was always looking to get involved. Not Belgium’s top performer, but still an effective one on the right flank. 7

YOURI TIELEMANS Has developed into one of the most highly-rated up-and-coming midfielders in the game. Strolled through this one with ease and composure. 7

AXEL WITSEL Stung Marshall’s palms with a drive from the edge of the area in the first half and came close early in the second. Ensured Martinez’s side won the midfield battle and controlled proceedings. 7

THORGAN HAZARD Didn’t have the impact of his brother but was still a key influence down the left for Belgium. 8

KEVIN DE BRUYNE Should have scored after 16 minutes and then almost did with a curling effort from range and a second half free-kick. An unsurprisingly excellent showing that was capped with a terrific finish. 9

EDEN HAZARD So, that’s what £130million buys you. A sublime performance from a classy operator as the new Real Madrid man proved why he is one of the best in the world. Popped up everywhere and was involved in everything. 9

ROMELU LUKAKU Provided the focal point to the Belgian attack and should have scored before he did as he headed home on the stroke of half-time. Tap-in second sealed the win. 9


DRIES MERTENS (for Tielemans) Got the final 13 minutes as he added fresh legs in the middle of the park for Belgium. Not that they needed them by that stage. 4

THOMAS VERMAELEN (for Kompany) Introduction allowed Kompany to take the acclaim from the home crowd. 1

YANNICK CARRASCO (for T. Hazard) No time to make an impact in the closing seconds. 1
