Dries Mertens happy with Andorra win, satisfied with brace


Napoli midfielder Dries Mertens was delighted after Belgium eased past Andorra by 6-0 on Saturday.

The 27-year-old was one of the best players on the pitch as he scored the last two goals of the match including a brilliant solo effort on the 69th minute.

"We are satisfied with the win," Mertens told Het Nieuwsblad.

"It was nice to see an empty stadium for the Andorra game, the fans enjoyed themselves.

"We didn't panic when it was still goalless, we knew the goal was coming. I'm happy for the two goals, the first goal was a header, pretty unusual for me to score like that.

"The second goal was more close to my characteristics, cutting inside and finding the back of the net."
