Gordon Strachan claims that Belgium are the best team that his side has faced since he became Scotland manager in January.

Gordon Strachan has claimed that Belgium are the best team that his side has faced since he became Scotland manager in January.

Scotland have been matched up against Estonia, Wales, Serbia, Croatia and England during Strachan's reign as national team boss.

However, after watching his troops lose 2-0 at home to Belgium on Friday night, Strachan was adamant that Marc Wilmots's outfit are noticeably superior.

"That's the best team we've played since I took over," Strachan told BBC Sport. "Belgium were magnificent.

"It was like a heavyweight boxer up against a flyweight. They've got speed, height, strength and we don't."

Belgium, whose squad includes the likes of Eden Hazard, Jan Vertonghen, Marouane Fellaini and Christian Benteke, are currently 10th in the FIFA World Rankings.
