Belgium players were in celebratory mood after their 5-0 win over Cyprus on Saturday.

Belgium had won just one of their previous three Euro 2016 qualifiers before facing Cyprus on Saturday evening, and they knew a win was paramount.

Marc Wilmots' men were in fourth place in Group B ahead of kick off, lagging behind Cyprus, Wales and Israel, but hit top form against Cyprus.

Manchester United's Marouane Fellaini grabbed a brace for Belgium, whilst Christian Benteke, Eden Hazard and Michu Batshuayi also scored in a thumping 5-0 victory.

It was a much-needed boost for Belgium, who were a coming off a World Cup campaign which saw them lose in the quarter-finals despite a number of underwhelming displays.

Now, they look ahead to Tuesday's game against Israel knowing that a victory would take them top of the group, before facing Wales in June in what promises to be a crucial game in the race for top spot in Group B.

After the win over Cyprus, a number of key Belgium players took to Twitter to celebrate, including Axel Witsel, Eden Hazard, Marouane Fellaini, Toby Alderweireld, Jan Vertonghen, Kevin De Bruyne and Christian Benteke.

Here is how some of the Belgium stars reacted on Twitter after hammering Cyprus 5-0 in Brussels on Saturday evening...
