Date: 10 October 2015

Kevin De Bruyne and Eden Hazard were among the goals, as Belgium thrashed Andorra 4-1 in their Euro 2016 qualifier. 

Hazard had the visitors' first chance in the 15th minutes, as the Chelsea winger fired just wide from the edge of the area.

Belgium continued to search fro the opener and went close moments later when Dries Mertens forced Ferran Pol into a fine save from close range.

The Red Devils eventually broke the deadlock in the 19th minute when Jordan Lukaku teed up Radja Nainggolan, rifled one past Pol from the distance.

Simon Mignolet was called up on in the 29th minute, as the Belgian shot-stopper pulled off a fine stop to deny Marcio Vieira.

Belgium doubled their advantage on the stroke of halftime, as Manchester City's Kevin De Bruyne curled home a free-kick.

The hosts managed to reduce the deficit five minutes into the second half via a penalty, which Ildefonso Lima converted.

However, The Belgians restored their two-goal advantage in the 56th minute when they awarded a penalty of their own, which Eden Hazard dispatched into the bottom corner.

It got better for the visitors in the 64th minute, Laurent Depoitre fired home a low effort into the bottom corner, after being picked out by Mertens.

However, Hazard squandered the chance to his second and Belgium's fifth in the 78th minute when he had his second penalty saved by Pol.

Belgium managed to see out the remaining stages with relative ease to secure the win and qualification to the European Championships next year.
