De Bruyne Triumphs with Goal in Milestone Match as Belgium Clinches 2-0 Victory Over Montenegro

Belgium clinched a 2-0 win over Montenegro in Brussels, setting the stage for their next big showdown at Euro 2024.

In the ultimate warm-up match before the European tournament, the Belgian squad showcased their prowess.

Starting for the hosts, the stellar midfielder from Manchester City nailed a long-range shot just before the break.

A sloppy backpass by Matija Sarkic ended up right before De Bruyne, who effortlessly lobbed it from over 30 yards straight into the gaping net.

Montenegro’s chances dimmed when Milos Brnovic received his second yellow. The night was then wrapped up by Leandro Trossard, who banged in a penalty during stoppage time after Jeremy Doku was brought down inside the box.

Brief Recap: Belgium’s win streak continues despite squandered chances

Though lacking their top scorer Romelu Lukaku, the Belgians were still tipped for a breezy victory. Yet, their performance fell short of expectations.

Garnering an expected goals (xG) statistic of 2.81 against a mere 0.62 for the opposition, Belgium’s command on the field didn’t quite translate into a hefty scoreline.

Despite the modest victory, the Red Devils stretched their unbeaten run to 14 games as they gear up for their first clash against Slovakia at Euro 2024, just 12 days away.
