AKIPRESS.COM - Belgium kept up their 100 percent record in Euro 2020 qualifiers, as Roberto Martinez's side, who have already booked their spot at the tournament finals, scored a goal in each half to beat hosts Kazakhstan 2-0 on Sunday, reports.

Michy Batshuayi and Thomas Meunier found the net at the Astana Arena as Belgium registered an eighth straight win in Group I.

The top-ranked Belgians were the first team to book a place in next year’s 24-team final tournament when they trounced San Marino 9-0 at home on Thursday.

Batshuayi opened the scoring in the 21st minute with an easy back-post finish after Dennis Praet’s curled pass around the back of the home defence.

The second goal came from a sumptuous crossfield pass from captain Eden Hazard, hit from just inside the Kazakhstan half, over to Meunier, who was steaming down the right wing.

His first touch was sublime and his finish inch-perfect to double the score after 53 minutes.
