World Cup qualifiers: Belgium’s big men beat Wales, 2-0

Vincent Kompany’s inch perfect header and Jan Vertonghen’s sizzling free kick provided the scoring highlights.
This might be the best Belgian side since the Enzo Scifo- Jan Cuelemans- Nico Claesen- Eric Gerets era. The present squad can choose between the goalkeeping abilities of Simone Mignolet and Thibaut Courtois. In midfield the skillful likes of Eden Hazard, Maoruane Fellaini, Moussa Dembele, Alex Witsel, and Dries Mertens run the show. On top they have Romelu Lukaku and Kevin Mirallas.
Wales were also done in by a rash challenge by James Collins on Guillaume Gillet which earned him a red card. Keeping up against a Belgian side of this calibre was going to be tough even with a full XI. Playing with a man down for more than an hour made it impossible.
