Eden Hazard was the star of the night as the captain of the national team led his country to a 4-0 win over Bosnia Herzegovina. With one goal and one assist, the Chelsea man was unstoppable.

The Montreal Impact connection comes courtesy of Laurent Ciman, the 2015 MLS defender of the year. The defender, who started Belgium's first game at Euro 2016 to then dissapear on the bench for the rest of the competition, played 70 minutes in that big win.

Being called up by Roberto Martinez was already a highlight for the ex-Standard De Liege player but he took full advantage of his chance.

He came on at the 21st minute for left-back Jordan Lukaku, who had to leave the game due to an injury.

Laurent Ciman is back on the fold with the Belgian national team, a haven for the Bleu-Blanc-Noir central defender.

We accelerated [the game] well in the first half and we managed well in the second half. We did what needed to be done. 4-0 is perfect. A 3-man defense worked well, we worked on that during the week.
