Belgium supporters have praised the performance of Tottenham Hotspur defender Toby Alderweireld for them against Scotland.

Spurs centre-back Alderweireld got on the scoresheet as Belgium picked up a 4-0 victory over Scotland at Hampden Park.

The Tottenham defender muscled his marker before heading home off the bar from a Kevin de Bruyne corner to get his name on the scoresheet.

In truth it was De Bruyne who took most of the plaudits for his brilliant display.

But Alderweireld was also credited for an excellent performance during the contest.

Alderweireld has started in every single one of Tottenham’s matches so far this term, and is set to return to Mauricio Pochettino’s side and play a key role.

It is not yet clear who Alderweireld will be playing alongside in the heart of Tottenham’s defence at the weekend.

Jan Vertonghen was recalled to Spurs’s starting line-up in Pochettino’s side’s last match, but Davinson Sanchez has started at centre-back throughout the rest of the campaign.
