After only nine minutes, a Belgium counter attack led to De Bruyne laying the ball on a plate for Lukaku, who was one on one with Marshall, to slot home an early opener. Nine minutes later, De Bruyne set up Lukaku again, but he put it wide. After 24 minutes, De Bruyne put a great cross into the box for Vermaelen to knock it past Marshall and make it 2-0. Just after the half-hour mark,  Tielemans sent a looping volley inches wide. A minute later Belgium got a third. A corner from De Bruyne was met by the head of Alderwiereld. His header went in off the bar to make it 3-0. Things were looking very daunting for Scotland at this stage. At the start of the second half, David Marshall denied Mertens a fourth, when he saved his curling shot. A few minutes later, Scotland's best chance came when Robertson got in behind the defence, but his low shot was saved by Courtois. With 20 minutes left, De Bruyne played a one-two with Mertens before narrowly shooting wide. Belgium made it 4-0 with eight minutes remaining. Lukaku passed to De Bruyne who hit a low curling shot past Marshall. In injury time, Marshall saved a shot by Verschaeren to keep it at 4-0, which was kind for Scotland, in what was Scotland's biggest ever defeat in a home competitive game.
