De Bruyne lambasted the state of the pitch upon which Belgium's 4-3 win over Bosnia and Herzegovina was played.

Belgian players said they had difficulty playing on the pitch at Grbavica Stadium, where stewards shoveled sand onto the field before kickoff.

A late victor from Yannick Carrasco saw Belgium to a 4-3 victory at the Stadion Grbavica on Saturday.

"Last time I played on such a bad pitch was when I was a seven-year-kid".

Victory for Scotland in Sunday's crucial final match in Slovenia will seal second place in Group F and should be good enough to clinch a play-off spot.

Belgium scored quickly through Thomas Meunier in the fourth minute, but trailed at the break, conceding to Haris Medunjanin and Edin Visca.

The Balkan nation led 2-1 before Chelsea striker Michy Batshuayi equalised on the hour mark and Jan Vertonghen, on his 96th cap, put Belgium ahead.

Chris Coleman wants Wales to enjoy vital clash with Republic of Ireland
Wales will once again be without the injured Gareth Bale , who watched his team-mates train at the Cardiff City Stadium on Sunday. Which teams have qualified for Russian Federation 2018? Whatever happens against Norway, the side are guaranteed two more games.

The best eight runners-up in the nine European groups go into the play-off round and Italy, already certain of finishing second in Group G, are guaranteed to be one of them.

But Carrasco scored just a minute later to hand Belgium all three points.

Belgium have already qualified for next year's World Cup in Russian Federation, meaning manager Roberto Martinez may opt to rest some of those wearier members of his squad.

"The pitch in Sarajevo was below any acceptable level".

The result was a blow to Bosnia-Herzegovina, who fell to third - behind Greece - with one match remaining.

They have 14 points, not including the six they won against bottom team Liechtenstein which are discarded during the calculation. Berg has averaged a goal-a-game in these qualifiers and was the Swedes' star man again as they cruised to a record-breaking 8-0 win over Luxembourg.
