The striker scored Belgium's second goal as the team saw off Greece 2-1 on Sunday in the World Cup Qualification stages.
The win extended their unbeaten run to 11 games - tying their previous best - and ensured top place in Group H for the Belgians, who reached the quarter-finals in Brazil in 2014.
Romelu Lukaku headed the victor in the 74th minute to give Belgium an unassailable eight-point lead over Bosnia at the top of Group H on Sunday.
I was really proud with the way the players fought.

Didier Deschamps' side, with Kylian Mbappe starting after coming off the bench to score against the Dutch, had more than 70% possession and over 30 attempts on goal in Toulouse but failed to find a way through and the final whistle was greeted with a chorus of boos from home fans.
Belgium also fielded Kevin De Bruyne, Dries Mertens and Yannick Carrasco against Gibraltar, and the firepower available to Martinez will surely even trouble a Greek side that has only conceded three goals in seven games.
Earlier, Croatia beat Kosovo in their qualifier, which resumed on 21 minutes after being postponed on Saturday due to a waterlogged pitch, earning a 1-0 win to send them to the top of Group I thanks to Domagoj Vida's header.
That has changed with the new agreement, but if Belgium were to win the World Cup in Russian Federation, the players will still bag a whopping 600,000 each. We had to win, in whatever manner we could. "We have seen the worst half of the campaign but I can be very proud of how we have faced adversity", Martinez said.
