Kevin de Bruyne scores brilliant goal in Belgium victory

Published Add your comment

New Manchester City midfielder Kevin De Bruyne gave fans a taster of what they're in for after he claimed a goal and an assist in Belgium's Euro 2016 qualifier win against Bosnia last night. 

Former City striker Edin Dzeko opened the scoring for Bosnia after 15 minutes, but their lead was cancelled out after De Bruyne set up a Marouane Fellaini goal.

De Bruyne went on to complete the comeback just before half time with a well-struck shot from outside the area, and Chelsea winger Eden Hazard completed the scoring after his penalty beat fellow teammate Asmir Begovic.

Manchester City may have been criticised for the £54m they paid for Kevin De Bruyne's services - a player who is unproven in the Premier League after an unsuccessful spell with Premier League rivals Chelsea. 


However, the 24-year-old was named Bundesliga Player of the Year last season after scoring 10 goals and a record-breaking 21 assists for Wolfsburg.

De Bruyne had this to say on receiving the award: "To be named in another country as best player has a great importance"

"This is recognition for my season. The award is a great honour for me that would not have been possible without the great performance of our team over the past year."


Manchester City's most expensive signing will relish the opportunity to play alongside world-class players and could soon find himself playing a big role in their domestic and European aspirations.

City are in the Champions League for the fifth time this year, and have only ever reached as far as the last 16.

But as their squad looks sharp and as strong as ever, is it their turn for European glory?
