Gibraltar conceded the fastest ever World Cup qualifying goal in their 6-0 demolition by Belgium. They stay rooted firmly at the bottom of their qualifying group following their defeat earlier in the week against Estonia, having racked up just two shots on target in total during their last two fixtures.
The accolade fell to Christian Benteke who pounced on a loose ball to slot home after just eight seconds. Axel Witsel doubled the lead before Benteke grabbed his second to hand the visitors a 3-0 advantage at half-time. Dries Mertens scored early on in the second half before the Crystal Palace striker completed his hat-trick after 56 minutes. Eden Hazard completed the rout to leave Belgium at the top of their group.
Three days earlier, the latest nation to be allowed to compete for World Cup qualification had held Estonia until half-time, but began to tire after the break. A brace from Mattias Kait came either side of Konstantin Vassiljev's low effort. Sergei Mosnikov's long-range shot sealed a 4-0 victory for the home side.source surinenglish
