Two goals in three minutes midway through the second half gave Belgium a deserved 2-0 victory over Scotland in Brussels.

It was a third qualifying win in four matches for Marc Wilmots' unbeaten side, who remain top of Group A on goal difference. However only after 69 minutes did Christian Benteke and Vincent Kompany finally break the resistance of a magnificent Allan McGregor in the Scotland goal.
