    • 90+3 That's it, Witsel's double gives Belgium a big win and the home fans jeer Austria off.
    • 81' Vertonghen almost makes it three but fires straight at the keeper Macho after bursting in.
    • 78' Witsel with a superb backheel, oooh that was nice, but Ogunjimi was half a yard offside if that.
    • 60' Austria have bought Maierhofer and Pehlivan on to inject some attacking urgency and it has, so far, worked with a couple of corners and free-kicks won in wide positions.
    • 51' GOAL BELGIUM! Another super finish from Witsel, who has scored three in two for Belgium now! Cimon's cross from the right found the unmarked Witsel, no pressure at all so he takes it on the chest and spanks a wicked finish home. 2-0!
    • 46' Second half underway in Austria.
    • 45' Half time and Belgium are a goal to the good courtesy of that unusual Witsel strike.
    • 21' That's twice Arnautovic has gone in high and late, first on Kompany then on Ciman. No card though.
    • 11' Mignolet with a super save after an error from the Belgium defence lets Janko in one-on-one!
    • 6' Witsel scores! Belgium lead! Austria fall apart after a high ball floats into the box, they thought the Standard man was offside but he wasn't and easily beat a flapping Macho to nod it in!
    • 1' Finally this match kicks off, five minutes behind schedule.
