Leandro Trossard helped Belgium run out 5-0 winners against Azerbaijan in their final EURO 2024 qualification group stage match. The Belgians found themselves 4-0 up inside 37′ minutes with all four goals coming from Romelu Lukaku.
Leandro Trossard made it five on the 90th minute and he had Manchester City star, Jeremy Doku to thank as he provided a brilliant assist for the Arsenal winger to tap home just before the final whistle.

The victory meant Belgium finished top of Group F on 20 points and have qualified for the Euro’s next year, with Austria a point behind in second place.
Leandro Trossard might have scored, however that wasn’t the most impressive thing he done against Azerbaijan tonight.
As shown in the video below, the Arsenal winger produced an excellent piece of skill to jump over a tackle, while controlling the ball in the air during the same movement. He then went on to nutmeg another opposition player within the same clip.

It’s a sign of brilliant close control which Arsenal fans see Trossard produce on a weekly basis in an Arsenal shirt.
Leandro Trossard has been on top form for the Gunners recently, having scored six goals in all competitions so far this season. No Arsenal player has scored more goals than the Belgian so far during the 2023/24 campaign. He carried on that good form for his country tonight.
Arsenal signed Leandro Trossard in January for a fee of £27million and the more matches he plays, the more it’s looking like the Gunners got an absolute steal from Brighton. The Belgian has become a very important player for Mikel Arteta.
The Gunners face Brentford after the international break and with Gabriel Jesus now back from injury, the Belgian faces a battle to keep his place as the Arsenal main striker once he returns from international duty.
However Leandro Trossard is doing himself no harm with his top performances over the last few weeks and there’s no doubt Mikel Arteta faces a selection headache ahead of Saturday’s game.
