WATCH: Toby Alderweireld gives Belgium early lead in Euro 2016 vs. Hungary

New, comment

Yet another Tottenham Hotspur player has found the score sheet for his country this summer in a major international tournament. Toby Alderweireld joins Eric Dier and Erik Lamela as Spurs players who have hit the back of the net. His powerful header in the 10th minute against Hungary has given Belgium a 1-0 lead.

Kevin De Bruyne's brilliant ball to the back post found the Tottenham defender all alone and he powered his header past the Hungary goalkeeper with ease. A huge moment for Toby to come up clutch for his country.

Belgium are in prime position to advance to the quarterfinals. They also have the benefit of residing on the weaker side of the bracket and should have a clear path to the final if they don't make a mistake along the way. The Red Devils started the tournament off slow, but this could finally be the major tournament where they live up to their hype and potential.
