Belgium maintained their perfect start in League A, while Croatia kept their UEFA Nations League campaign alive with victory over Spain.

Belgium 2-0 Iceland

Belgium recorded a third straight in Group 2 in League A after defeating Iceland 2-0 in the Stade Roi Baudouin.

On-loan Valencia striker Michy Batshuayi was the hero on the night after netting a brace to steer the Belgians to victory.

The victory sees Roberto Martinez's top the group, three points ahead of Switzerland.

Croatia 3-2 Spain

Croatia maintained their hopes of qualifying for the finals after defeating Spain 3-2 in Zagreb.

Andrej Kramaric put the hosts ahead after 54 minutes before Iago Aspas levelled matters two minutes.

Tin Jedvaj restored Croatia's in the 69th minute, only for Sergio Ramos to restore parity once again in the 78th minute.

However, Jedvaj had the last laugh as the defender completed his brace and netted the winning goal in the second minute of time added on.

Croatia can advance to the finals if they beat England on Sunday, while Spain will need the Croatians to drop points to advance.

Austria 0-0 Bosnia-Herzegovina
