In Cardiff, Simon Church eased the pressure on Chris Coleman as he scored a second-half winner to help Wales to a 1-0 win over Macedonia, a result that saw them move off the bottom of the table.

Coleman will be keen to follow up that result with another strong performance in Brussels against Belgium as he looks to build for the future.

“Alright, there is nothing on it for them as it (World Cup qualifying) is done, but we still have a point to prove,” said Coleman.

“We can’t go there thinking, ‘nobody expects anything from us’ – we have to expect something from ourselves.”

Lloyd Isgrove, Declan John and 16-year-old Harry Wilson are the future of Welsh football and the trio will be involved with the squad ahead of the game.

Meanwhile at the other of the spectrum Cardiff striker Craig Bellamy will draw down the curtains on his International career with the former Liverpool man set to retire after the clash with the Belgians.

The Belgians won the group, securing automatic qualification for Brazil, with a 2-1 win away to Croatia although with 8 wins and a draw from their 9 games so far Marc Wilmot’s side will be in no mood to take it easy on the Welsh.

Scotland meanwhile had a free night on Friday but they will be full of confidence following last months 2-1 win away to Macedonia. That win was their second of the campaign and second successive on the road.

While results away from Hampden have improved, home points have been difficult to come across with Gordon Strachan’s side picking just two points in front of their fans during qualifying and they have not won competitively since September 2011 when they Lithuania.

Scotland will hope to overcome that record when they face a Croatian they beat 1-0 in Zagreb in June.

With Igor Stimac side’s guaranteed a play-off, the former West Ham defender is expected to rest a number of players for the game especially as Vedran Corluka, Luka Modric, Mario Mandzukic, Niko Kranjcar, Nikica Jelavic, Gordon Schildenfeld, Ivan Strinic, Eduardo and Ognjen Vukojevic are all on yellow cards and would miss the first leg of the play-off if they were booked in Glasgow.

Stimac will also be without Josip Simunic, Sime Vrsaljko, Mateo Kovacic and Ivan Rakitic.

Scotland meanwhile will have Robert Snodgrass available following the birth of his daughter while Motherwell defender Steven Hammell has been added to the Scotland squad as cover with Rangers’ Lee Wallace sidelined and Norwich City’s Steven Whittaker suspended.

Elsewhere in the group Serbia will hope to hold onto fourth spot in the group when they play a Macedonia side fighting to avoid the wooden spoon.
