BELGIUM 4 CYPRUS 0: HAZARD BROTHERS ON TARGET AS VERTONGHEN BREAKS RECORD
Substitute Romelu Lukaku demonstrated his recovery from an ankle injury by scoring the home side’s fourth goal in Brussels.
Belgium marked Jan Vertonghen becoming the country’s most-capped player with a comfortable 4-0 victory over Cyprus in Brussels on Tuesday.
Roberto Martinez’s side became the first European nation to qualify for Russia 2018 in September and Eden Hazard scored twice, while younger brother Thorgan also found the net, as they completed an impressive campaign with a ninth triumph in 10 Group H outings.
Romelu Lukaku came off the bench to bag Belgium’s fourth and final goal, proving his fitness after an ankle injury ahead of Manchester United’s Premier League trip to Liverpool on Saturday.
With Cyprus rarely threatening an upset, Vertonghen enjoyed an untroubled outing on his landmark 97th appearance, taking him beyond Jan Ceulemans on the all-time list.
The former record-holder presented the Tottenham defender with a framed shirt prior to kick-off, while Vertonghen was also named honorary captain to celebrate his achievement.
