A goal in each half from Steven Defour and Kevin Mirallas ensured the visiting side took another massive step towards Brazil by remaining at the top of Group A.

And Tottenham defender Vertonghen said Marc Wilmots' side came for all three points and deserved to get them.

"That was what we hoped for - 2-0," the Spurs defender told Sky Sports 3.

"We had a very good game. Sometimes we were in a difficult period but Scotland are a good team and we were well prepared.

"We watched a lot of video and were ready.

"I think we had a lot of firepower up front, a lot of players who can score. I think that's the problem in the Scotland squad. We have so many who can and want to score and a solid defence.

"We're five points up with two games to go so we need a draw in Croatia, but of course we want to win."

think that puts all doubts over Benteke's quality to bed. Can he do it after receiving the ball to feet, in the box, totally unmarked, on a warm, sunny afternoon in Swindon? Oh yes he can! This year is definitely Liverpool's year. YNWA.

ll very well selling all midfield and strikers but unless we bring anyone in that is better than what we had then it will be a terrible transfer window in my view. Sorted out the defense but our midfield and striker options look very light.

ove it when Jose accuses others of being defensive, cynical and playing to win. If I was Wenger, I'd get that quote laminated and framed - surely the biggest compliment he's ever received from Mourinho. You've got him riled Arsene - you're relevant again!
