Real Madrid‘s Eden Hazard started as Belgium hosted Estonia on Saturday night, only to find himself replaced by his brother Thorgan who then went on to score as the Red Devils claimed a 3-1 win to confirm their place at the 2022 World Cup in Qatar.

Atletico Madrid’s Yannick Carrasco was also on target for Roberto Martinez’s side after Christian Benteke had given them an early lead, with Carrasco making it two shortly after the break.

Erik Sorga livened things up briefly as he pulled a goal back for the visitors. But Thorgan Hazard, having come on to replace his older brother Eden, killed things off with about a quarter of an hour to play, getting his name on the scoresheet with Belgium’s third.

The win leaves Belgium on 19 points from their seven games so far, five clear of Wales‘ 14 points despite their win over Belarus on the night, meaning they have qualified for the World Cup.
