Original match report:
Penalty save
With neither side in contention to secure a berth in the play-offs behind pool winners Austria, there was little but pride to play for in Senec. The hosts could have been in front as early as the eleventh minute when Jason Vandenlannoite fouled Erik Jendrišek in the penalty area but FC Artmedia Petržalka striker Juraj Piroska's spot-kick was kept out by Belgium goalkeeper Kenny Steppe. At the other end, the Red Devils were equally as wasteful as Giuseppe Rossini squandered a one-on-one with Slovakia goalkeeper Ľuboš Kamenár.

Final fixtures
Both teams upped the tempo after the break and it was the visitors who struck first when Roland Lamah's 63rd-minute shot from 18 metres surprised Kamenár. The lead lasted just two minutes, though, as Manchester City FC forward Vladimír Weiss Junior – the son of the Slovakia coach – burst through the Belgian defence to level. Slovakia conclude their campaign against Iceland on Tuesday, when Belgium play Cyprus.
