Chelsea striker Michy Batshuayi and Tottenham defender Jan Vertonghen were among the goalscorers as Belgium secured a thrilling 4-3 win away to Bosnia-Herzegovina in Sarajevo on Saturday.

Belgium came into their World Cup qualifier having already booked their place at next year's finals in Russia - the first European side to do so - with much of the pre-game talk surrounding Vertonghen's record-equalling appearance.

The Spurs centre-back won his 96th cap for Belgium on Saturday, which moved the 30-year-old one game closer to breaking Jan Ceulemans' record which he set in 1991.

And things seemed to be going smoothly for Vertonghen and his compatriots when Thomas Meunier latched onto Eden Hazard's cross to open the scoring in just the fourth minute.

But the Red Devils were then left stunned when the hosts, who sit second in Group H, turned the game on its head with two goals in nine minutes through Haris Medunjanin and Edin Visca as Fellaini was forced off in the 29th minute with a knee injury - a week before Manchester United play Liverpool at Anfield.
