UEFA Nations League – Belgium 2-1 Switzerland

Belgium continued their dominance in the Nations League as they beat Switzerland in Brussels to move top of Group A2

Lukaku opened the scoring after good work from right-back Meunier to get the ball to the big forward. It then looked as if they would be dropping two points at home when Switzerland equalised via substitute Gavranovic, who reacted quickest to Elvedi’s header following Shaqiri’s deep free-kick – this happened after Vermaelen was forced off the pitch with a hamstring injury.

Kompany then wasted a glorious chance by heading wide from 6 yards, before Lukaku shot over from the same distance. But the Manchester United striker made up for his wastefulness and won it late on, finishing off a well-worked one-touch move involving Mertens and Hazard.

The victory takes Martinez’s side above Switzerland in the group.
