Kevin De Bruyne feared injury playing on worst pitch since his childhood

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

Defending In Numbers is a new Deezer Originals football podcast, created by Squawka.

"I was anxious I'd get injured", the Manchester City attacker said.

In the 30th minute, BiH made it even with the help of Haris Medunjanin, who plays for Philadelphia Union in the US. "Last time I played on such a bad pitch was when I was a seven-year-old kid".

From there, the Eagles struck quickly as Zach Ertz nabbed an 11-yard touchdown from Wentz for a two-touchdown advantage. He completed 21 of his 30 passes for 300 yards and a career-high four touchdowns, including three in the first quarter.

This Saturday, October 7, 2017 (9:00 AM Pacific) Bosnia will host Belgium at the Stadion Grbavica for a match in the UEFA 2018 FIFA World Cup qualifiers. The win has lifted them to nine points clear atop Group H.

In the first half, the BiH team had an upper hand but Belgium was the first to score in the fourth minute when Thomas Meunier shocked the home team with a precise shot.

Chelsea's Michy Batshuayi drew Belgium level just before the hour mark and when Jan Vertonghen volleyed home from close range in the 68th minute, Belgium led 3-2. Belgium has already secured a ticket to Russian Federation but Bosnia will be looking for the three points from the game for a possible second-place finish. Roberto Martinez counts with a star-studded squad featuring players like Romelu Lukaku, Eden Hazard, Kevin De Bruyne, Vincent Kompany and Thibaut Courtois amongst others.

"Our team spirit won the game, not any tactics. We scored four goals and could have scored four more". They face Estonia in their final qualifying fixture.
