Martinez: Man City attacker De Bruyne best in the world

Belgium coach Roberto Martinez has heaped praise on Manchester City attacker Kevin de Bruyne.

De Bruyne scored in last night's rout of Scotland.

Martinez said, "He has started off fresh this season and you can clearly see his exceptional qualities. To me, he is the best playmaker in the world.

"Playmakers usually stop to deliver, but he can execute those deliveries there while he is on the move.

"He is healthy, takes a lot of responsibility, and he has a very important role."
