The 28-year-old has been directly involved in six goals for City at the beginning of this season and he continued his fine form on the international stage with three goals and an assist in Belgium's 4-0 reverse of Scotland.
After his virtuoso display on Monday night it was put to De Bruyne that he might be the world's form player and he responded: "Fortunately I don't have to judge that.
"I just have to play well. I'm just content. I'm feeling good. I have already played many matches and am starting to come into my rhythm. That is important, because there are still many games to play.
"When your career is over, you can see what you have done afterwards. But right now I just want to win competitions. The faster we do that, the better. That can also be very important for the rest of the season."
