Belgium are within touching distance of making a first major finals since 2002 after an impressive victory in Scotland stretched their lead at the top of FIFA World Cup qualifying Group A.

With closest challengers Croatia failing to defeat Serbia, victory for Marc Wilmots' men, courtesy of goals from Steven Defour and Kevin Mirallas in either half, moves them five points clear with just two games remaining. A draw in Croatia on 11 October would seal Belgium's qualification.
