Result: Belgium brush Estonia aside to extend Group H lead

:Headline: Result: Belgium brush Estonia aside to extend Group H lead:
Belgium ease to a 2-0 victory over group minnows Estonia in World Cup qualifying.

Belgium have recorded a comfortable 2-0 victory over Estonia to extend their lead at the top of World Cup qualifying Group H to four points.

Goals either side of half time from Napoli's Dries Mertens and Nacer Chadli of West Bromwich Albion were enough to see off the Eastern European minnows and secure maximum points for Roberto Martinez's side.

The Red Devils almost took the lead in the 12th minute when Chadli shook off his marker and went for goal from the edge of the box, his effort went sailing just wide.

Estonia held out until the half-hour mark before conceding, the opening goal coming when goalkeeper Mihkel Aksalu palmed Kevin De Bruyne's cross straight into the path of Mertens for an easy tap-in.

The hosts offered little in the final third and their hopes of causing an upset were dealt another blow just before half time when Artjom Dmitrijev was shown a red card for a dangerous tackle on Marouane Fellaini.

Aksalu atoned for his first-half blooper with a string of saves in the second period as Belgium piled on the pressure, but he was left helpless three minutes from time when De Bruyne's through-ball picked out Chadli so the West Brom man could stroke the ball home from close range.

The result sees Belgium extend their lead at the top of Group H over second-placed Greece to five points, with both sides having played six games. body check tags ::
