The staff for Belgium vs England
Uncertainty reigns around the Belgian selection. If the coach has chosen to select his best player Eden Hazard and his top scorer Lukaku, Roberto Martinez could well be deprived of his two main assets. Indeed, the Madrilenian is affected by the Covid and the giant goalscorer of Inter is injured. The two, therefore, remain very uncertain while the titular side Castagne (Leicester) is injured. On the other hand, the tauliers Courtois (Real Madrid), Vertonghen (Benfica), Alderweireld (Tottenham), Vermalen (Vissel Kobe), Meunier (Dortmund), Witsel (Dortmund), De Bruyne (Manchester City), Chadli (Istanbul BB), Tielemans (Leicester) and Thorgan Hazard (Dortmund) are well operational. On top of that, the very good Mertens (Napoli) and the scorers Benteke (Crystal Palace) and Batshuayi (Crystal Palace) are also part of the group as well as the neo-Rennes Doku.
England also has a few absences to report, starting with the very good side Alexander-Arnold (Liverpool) and midfielder Oxlade-Chamberlain (Liverpool). For his part, the young Greenwood is still paying his fault during the September rally when he was excluded from the group due to a breach of the sanitary rules in place. Otherwise, experienced defenders Walker (City), Dier (Tottenham), Maguire (Man United) and Trippier (Atlético) are there as are midfielders Henderson (Liverpool), Rice (West-Ham), Mount (Chelsea) and Winks (Tottenham). On the offensive side, the scorer Kane (Tottenham) and the twirling Sterling (City), Rashford (Man U) and Sancho (Dortmund) are also part of the rally.
