Michy Batshuayi was a second half substitute during Belgium's win over a defensive Finland. They held on but only for 74 minutes as Thomas Vermaelen's header hit the post and went in unfortunately off goalkeeper Lukas Hradecky. 

Romelu Lukaku sealed top spot for Belgium and maximum points for Roberto Martinez's side in the 81st minute as he let the ball roll across him and powered it into the bottom corner.
