Football: Belgium deserved to beat competitive Iceland - Martinez

The Belgium coach is pleased after a 2-1 victory in Reykjavik. Roberto Martinez: "It’s the first time that both teams have three games in an international camp and I think you saw the effects of that. In the first half I felt we started really, really well but Iceland were extremely clinical. The first chance [they had] they scored a very good goal and from that point it was a very contested game. Second half we wanted to manage the game, we controlled the game and probably in the last five minutes, as you would expect, Iceland never gave up and put us under massive pressure to defend the box well. I felt that overall we deserved the win and it was a very satisfying win against a very good performance from the Icelandic team. “[Denmark's win over England] is not a surprise. I think Denmark were a very impressive team when we faced them at their place. That shows you that this group is more open than ever. We’ve got a really good November camp where we face England and we face Denmark at home and from our point of view we hope all the Red Devils fans are allowed to the ground but we all know the difficulty that we have."
