Toby lined up at centre-half, Mousa in central midfield and Jan at left-back as the Red Devils continued their build-up to Euro 2016 by coming from a goal down to emerge victorious in the friendly outing.

Blerim Džemaili gave Switzerland the lead just after the half-hour mark but Romelu Lukaku quickly replied for the visitors before Kevin De Bruyne won it seven minutes from time.

Toby and Jan completed the full game while Mousa was withdrawn 10 minutes into the second half.

Belgium take on Finland in another Euro 2016 warm-up game on Wednesday evening (June 1).
