HIGHLIGHTS

Highlight: Scotland 0 – 4 Belgium [Friendly]

Published

on

Belgium rarely had to get out of second gear in Glasgow, but Eden Hazard was the catalyst for an emphatic win over an error-strewn Scotland.

Eden Hazard impressed and Michy Batshuayi scored twice as Belgium capitalised on some woeful Scotland defending to coast to a 4-0 win at Hampden Park.

A John McGinn error undid Scotland’s hard work from the opening exchanges, with Romelu Lukaku the beneficiary, before star turn Hazard added a decidedly better second with a thunderous effort.

Charlie Mulgrew and Ryan Jack were then culpable as Batshuayi celebrated a quickfire double.

Tougher challenges lie in wait but Roberto Martinez will be content with what he saw from his World Cup semi-finalists.

Manchester United secured their place in the last 16 of the Champions League when Marouane Fellaini secured a 1-0 win over Young Boys with a dramatic goal in injury time.

Jose Mourinho’s team laboured with the Swiss champions at Old Trafford throughout the match and seemed to be opting for a second goalless consecutive draw at home until Fellaini’s intelligent finish it of.

In fact, it could have been worse for United if David de Gea had not shown an overwhelming response, except to prevent a deflection off substitute Ulisses Garcia in the second half.

The result, paired with Valencia’s 1-0 loss to Juventus, means the Red Devils, together with the Italians, now book a place in the knockout phase with one match left.
