Belgium ease to comfortable 2-0 win and end England's Nations League hopes

Powered by automated translation

Goals from Youri Tielemans and Dries Mertens earned Belgium a comfortable 2-0 victory and England's hopes of qualifying for the Nations League finals.

England needed a win but Gareth Southgate's side found themselves chasing the game after Tielemans put the hosts in front after 10 minutes.

Harry Kane had an effort cleared off the line soon after but it got even worse for England when Mertens curled home a delightful free kick after 23 minutes.

Belgium held on with few real alarms against an unimaginative England side and must now avoid defeat on Wednesday against Denmark, who beat Iceland 2-1, to finish top of the group.

A second successive defeat for England, after a home loss to Denmark, left them in third place in the group with one match to come at home to Iceland next week.
