Jan Vertonghen was left exasperated following his side’s emphatic victory against Estonia on Sunday evening and delivered an excited message on Twitter.
Belgium were merciless as they thrashed Estonia 8-1 in their World Cup qualifier to extend their commanding lead at the top of the Group H qualifying pack.
The victory was their fourth in as many games as they look set to seal their place in the tournament and Vertonghen described his team’s performance as “great.”

Dries Mertens and Romelu Lukaku scored two goals each and there were further goals from Chelsea star Eden Hazard, as well as Thomas Meunier and Yannick Carrasco.
Henri Anier scored a consolation goal for Estonia and centre-back Ragnar Klavan also scored an own goal as the Liverpool defender endured a hellish game against a ruthless Belgium attack.
Vertonghen started at centre-back for the Red Devils but was not playing alongside usual partner and club teammate Toby Alderweireld who missed out through injury.
Alderweireld has been out since last month after picking up a knee injury but is hopeful of returning to Tottenham’s defence alongside Vertonghen for their clash against West Ham after the international break.
