Belgium scored four times in the final 22 minutes to complete an outstanding comeback and register their first win in UEFA European Under-21 Championship qualifying Group 7.
The home side, who reached the last four at the finals in the Netherlands in June, had only taken one point from their first two games in qualifying so were desperate to get their campaign back on track. But their hopes appeared to be in tatters when Lukás Opiela struck on 21 minutes and Erik Jendrišek after 56 minutes to give the visitors a two-goal cushion.
Belgium were given a glimmer of hope when Tom De Mul pulled a goal back on 68 minutes and they began to dream of an amazing escape when Anthony Vanden Borre levelled on 74 minutes with a penalty. The superb turnaround was completed with another Vanden Borre strike and a goal from Giuseppe Rossini inside the last four minutes. Belgium go to group leaders Austria, who they trail by three points, on Tuesday while Slovakia, who have two points from three games and sit bottom of the group, host Cyprus.
