Belgium Captain Eden Hazard provided a brilliant long pass to Paris St. Germain Right-back, Thomas Meunier who sealed off the win with a cool finish at the Astana Arena.
Russians make merry as they defeat 10-man Cyprus
Elsewhere,Russia produced a fabulous display of teamwork against Cyprus as they secured their Euro 2020 berth with a rampant 5-0 win.
Valencia CF winger, Denis Cheryshev was on top form as he provided two goals and an assist for his teammates.
Cypriot defender, Konstantinos Laifis was shown a straight red card in the 28th minute after he committed a dreadful tackle. Russia clearly took advantage of the situation as Cyprus were reduced to 10 men.
Artem Dzyuba, Aleksandr Golovin and Magomed Ozdoev were also on the score-sheet for Russia.
The Polish carve their way to the big stage
Poland ensured their presence in the next European Championship with a 2-0 win over North Macedonia at the National stadium, Warsaw.
Substitutes Przemyslaw Frankowski and Arkadiusz Milik scored just in the nick of time after they were left frustrated by their opponents' strong defensive display.
Despite enjoying 65 percent of the possession in the match, the Poles registered just four shots on target. Captain Robert Lewandowski was involved in each of the two goals as he once again leaded his team with aplomb.
