Danny Welbeck scored the only goal to ensure England head to Euro 2012 on the back of victory over Belgium at Wembley.
Welbeck raced onto Ashley Young's precise through-ball before dinking smartly over Simon Mignolet on 36 minutes to give England a lead they seldom looked likely to surrender.
Guillaume Gillet shaved the upright with a long-range strike and seemingly Tottenham-bound Jan Vertonghen headed over as Belgium searched for an equaliser, while substitute Jermain Defoe almost added a second for England as he struck the post after beating Mignolet.
The result means England head to the European Championships with back-to-back 1-0 victories under new boss Roy Hodgson.
There was a sour note for England, though, as Gary Cahill went off nursing an injured jaw following a first-half collision with goalkeeper Joe Hart. The Chelsea centre-back will have a precautionary x-ray, while John Terry also faces a scan on his hamstring.
Hodgson told ITV1 after the game: "Cahill is slightly more of a concern because it's a jaw injury.
"I am hoping the scan doesn't show a fracture and it will be a bruising situation.
"That wouldn't rule him out of the tournament."
Hodgson revealed Terry was having a precautionary scan after "feeling a bit of a hamstring".
The former Liverpool manager added: "I'm very pleased, it's been a hard week.
"There was a lot of disruption in the second half, some forced upon us, some we wanted to do.
"It was a very good Belgium side - arguably stronger than Norway."
