Belgium set up section deciderSunday 7 June 2009
UEFA European Under-19 Championship Elite round Group 4 will be decided on Wednesday as mini-tournament hosts Belgium brushed aside Sweden to set up a decisive Matchday 3 meeting with Switzerland.
Having won their opener against the Republic of Ireland 1-0, Belgium earned a second clean sheet in Beringen. They were 1-0 up after 13 minutes with Guillaume François tapping in at the far post after a slick passing move. Eden Hazard pounced on an attempted back-pass to make it 2-0 in the 33rd minute, François striking again three minutes later, and it was four by half-time, with R. Standard de Liège striker Christian Benteke heading in Hazard's 39th-minute cross. Benteke then completed the scoring 12 minutes from full-time, although Belgium must still beat Switzerland to reach the final tournament with the Swiss top of the standings on goal difference.
