Belgium Score Two 'PlayStation Goals' vs Denmark And It Proves Kevin De Bruyne Is A Cheat Code

Belgium scored two team goals of the highest order on Thursday night in their Group B clash against Denmark - and commentator Ally McCoist thought he watching something out of a video game.

Roberto Martinez's side, who picked up a convincing win in their Euro opener against Russia, got off to the worst start possible when Yussuf Poulsen pounced on a defensive mistake from Jason Denayer.

The Red Devils continued to struggle throughout the opening 45 minutes, registering just one shot on target in a frankly miserable - and unexpected - half of football at the Parken Stadium in Copenhagen

After such a disappointing first period, a completely different side emerged after the break, with the substitution of Kevin De Bruyne for Dries Mertens being an inspired one as Belgium upped the ante.

That man De Bruyne, who was missing from Saturday's clash against Russia with an acute nose bone fracture and left orbital fracture, was heavily involved in the equaliser.

He cut the ball back to Thorgan Hazard as he slotted away a wonderful team effort. "It's a PlayStation goal - as simple as that," said commentator Ally McCoist, who has been outstanding this tournament. "It's brilliant...absolutely brilliant!"

Belgium continued to dominate in large spells and, after they brought on Eden Hazard and Axel Witsel just before the hour mark, things went from bad to worse for the helpess Danes as an electric De Bruyne netted another wonderful team goal.

Denmark threatened late on with a number of efforts but Belgium managed to hold on. They top Group B with six points from two games and face Finland on Monday.
