Belgium boss Roberto Martinez believes that there is no other midfielder like Kevin De Bruyne when he gets going.

The Manchester City star scored once and provided three assists in Belgium’s 4-0 win over Scotland in a 2020 Euro qualifier game. The 28-year-old produced an elegant display like he has done so far with his club this season in which he has already provided five assists.

Martinez has little doubts that De Bruyne is one of the best in his position on his day.

“He’s been very, very good for a long time now,” Martinez told Sky Sports post-match.

“I think he’s in the best moment of his career. This campaign has started with a freshness and real driven feeling of playing at his best and when he does that he’s as good as it gets. There’s no other midfield player that can create space, a playmaker that can execute the passes that he does. It’s a joy to see him fitting into the group.

“It’s fair to say today was a big win for us. It’s a big, big step. We need to keep getting tighter as a group and keep getting better.”
