In what turned out to be a relaxed affair for the Belgian team, Romelu Lukaku netted four goals, and Trossard added one, securing a resounding 5-0 victory for the hosts.
Consequently, Domenico Tedesco’s squad claimed the top spot in the group, finishing ahead of Austria.
Trossard, the Arsenal player, demonstrated an extraordinary display of skill during the game, leaving fans astonished.
The midfielder skillfully lifted the ball away from the tackle, executing a remarkable piece of close control as he brought the ball back down.
Trossard, who moved to Arsenal from Brighton and Hove Albion in January, has primarily served as a backup option.
In a recent interview discussing his Arsenal career, the 28-year-old expressed determination to present a selection challenge for Gunners manager Mikel Arteta.

He told HLN: “I am very satisfied with my performance at Arsenal. We are doing well and I am happy that I can contribute to that… I don’t think anything needs to improve. I am doing well and can’t do more than make it as difficult as possible for the coach.
“Under Arteta, I have made the most progress in terms of watching football. For me it doesn’t really matter where the coach puts me. I have played just about everywhere in recent years. Where the coach puts me, I will play my match. I don’t really have a preference.”
Trossard added: “The playing style is very different from Brighton. The way we play football is fantastic. I have learned a lot tactically.”
The Belgian player aspires that his displays in the international break will merit him a starting position when Arsenal resumes Premier League play this weekend.
Arteta’s squad is set to face Brentford, a fellow London club, on Saturday at the Gtech Community Stadium.
