Belgium beats Macedonia 2-0 in WCup qualifier
Goals from Kevin de Bruyne and Eden Hazard led Belgium to a 2-0
win at Macedonia in World Cup qualifying on Friday.
The result puts Belgium level with Croatia in Group A with 13
points from five games.
Macedonia missed several early chances and fell behind when De
Bruyne was too fast for defender Aleksandar Lazovski and scored at
close range in the 26th minute.
Striker Goran Pandev narrowly missed a chance to equalize in the
41st when his powerful shot skimmed the crossbar.
Hazard made Macedonia pay for that miss by converting a penalty
in the 62nd minute.
