Scotland captain Darren Fletcher is confident that he and his teammates can take down Belgium in World Cup qualifying tonight.

The Tartan Army take on the Belgians in Brussels tonight needing a victory to keep their 2014 Brazil hopes alive and Manchester United midfielder Fletcher feels that Craig Levein has a group capable of producing maximum points against the Group A leaders.

“Yes, they’re a top-class side, but they are by no means unbeatable,” he said of the Belgium team which boasts the likes of Eden Hazard, Mousa Dembele, Vincent Kompany, Jan Vertonghen, Thomas Vermaelen and Marouane Fellaini (who is struggling with injury).

“We’re going in against players from the Premier League, so it’s not as if we are up against the unknown.

“They still haven’t achieved anything. They haven’t qualified for the World Cup yet.

“Although they have got all this talent, they have not set the world alight as an international side. They still need to prove it. We need a result for the squad and for the manager.

“We know how difficult it’s going to be. They have a lot of quality.

“But to build Belgium up and say they are unbeatable is dangerous because they can definitely be beaten.

“Hopefully we can use all that knowledge and preparation and come together as a team to get the right result.”
