Benteke bagged a hat trick in his country's 6-0 win over Gibraltar in World Cup qualifiers.
Former Everton and current Belgium boss Roberto Martinez has had his say on Christian Benteke's performance versus Gibraltar.
Christian Benteke struck the fastest goal in a competitive international and went on to complete his hat-trick as Belgium defeated Gibraltar 6-0 in a World Cup qualifier.
Marc Wilmots has been sacked as Belgium head coach following the national team’s poor showing at Euro 2016.
In the aftermath of the quite stunning Wales victory over Belgium, Chris Coleman was understandably reluctant to look too far ahead.
Chris Coleman said it was an indescribable feeling to lead Wales to the Euro 2016 semi-finals but insisted his players would be keeping their feet on the ground after an emphatic 3-1 defeat of Belgium in Lille.
As the clock ran down in those febrile, oddly still moments after Sam Vokes’s goal had confirmed what everyone in the Stade Pierre Mauroy already knew, the Welsh end lolled and bounced around like a huge, seething red-shirted basket of kittens.
Are Belgium ever going to be genuine contenders or are they just a waste of good footballers? This was Wales’s night, and make no mistake they deserved a place in the last four, but Belgium’s inability to show any sort of consistency must be beyond infuriating for their management and supporters.
Wales could hear the call of history. They reached the quarter-finals of the 1958 World Cup but had never been in the semi-finals of a major tournament and the challenge was to surpass those sepia-tinted images. How they answered it on a night that will surely go down as their finest on a football field.
