‘What a player!’ – Dazzling De Bruyne inspires Belgium to comeback victory over Denmark

The Manchester City midfielder produced a memorable second-half performance to help his country qualify for the Euro 2020 knockout round

Kevin De Bruyne put on a dazzling display to inspire Belgium to a 2-1 comeback victory over Denmark on Thursday, earning plenty of praise on social media in the process.

Belgium came into their second Group B fixture fresh from a comfortable 3-0 win against Russia, but got off to the worst possible start at the Parken Stadium as Denmark took an early lead through Yussuf Poulsen.

The Red Devils were lucky not to concede again before the break, but emerged for the second period with a renewed sense of purpose following the introduction of De Bruyne, who has only just returned to action following a serious facial injury.

Within just 10 minutes of coming on, De Bruyne had provided the all-important assist for Thorgan Hazard to level the scores in Copenhagen.

The Manchester City star took a pass from Romelu Lukaku in his stride before calmly squaring the ball across goal to Hazard, who then had the simplest of tasks to stroke the ball past Kasper Schmeichel from close range.
