Former Manchester City striker Tessa Wullaert, who is also her country’s captain, starred in the show with no less than five goals and a trio of assists against the hapless Armenians.
Center-back Amber Tysiak and midfielder Tine De Caigny also had hat tricks.
Additionally, Janice Cayman, Hannah Eurlings and Jarne Teulings all scored double in the hammering in Leuven.

Yet while such a performance from Belgium might suggest that they are a top-flight team sweeping away anyone who stands in their way, they are only third in Group F behind Poland and the Norway by one point and three points respectively.
In women’s football history, there are at least four known 21-0 teardowns seen in matches between Japan and Guam, Canada and Puerto Rico, New Zealand and Samoa, and Australia and Samoa. Western games with the winners named first in these matches all held in the 1990s.
Back in the present day, these weren’t the only high-scoring deals across Europe in the World Cup qualifiers with Norway’s 7-0 beating against relatively lenient Albania.
In North Macedonia, Northern Ireland beat the hosts 11-0 with four goals from Simone Magill and a hat trick from Rachel Furness.
In the Iberian Peninsula, Spain beat the Faroe Islands 12-0 with Real Madrid star Esther Gonzalez herself putting four against the minnows.

But not everyone at home was happy with the Sevilla result, with one fan, who might not understand that the outfits are not allowed to pick their opponents in qualifying, saying: “They know they should play more against real teams, not with those almost amateur teams. “
“Stay the course in the second leg. Don’t give them hope “was a much lighter comment, however, in response to a post from Belgium about their victory.
I hope we all agree that there is neither pride nor joy in humiliating another country?
“Over 2.5 goals was a safe bet,” one gamer concluded, as another prankster joked, it was a “debacle” they hadn’t scored.
Yet one party animal must have spoiled the fun by asking, “I hope we all agree that there is no pride and no joy in humiliating another country? “
