Lucky11 | FIFA World Cup: Belgium Squad Analysis
The selection for November's World Cup games provides a hint as to who might be included in the Belgium World Cup 2022 team. Despite their fairly disappointing recent form, Belgium remained one of the underdogs to win the FIFA World Cup 2022 while they were the number one team in the world between September 2018 and February 2021.
Belgium have competed in 13 World Cups, but have never won the world cup. Their best-ever finish was third in Russia in 2018.
Thibaut Courtois, Jan Vertonghen, Kevin De Bruyne, Romelu Lukaku, and captain Eden Hazard all appear to be nearing the end of their careers, but Belgium's Golden Generation will have one final chance in Qatar.
Thibaut Courtois of Real Madrid, who was the best goalkeeper at the 2018 World Cup, will want to retain the Golden Glove award and make history as the first shot-stopper to do so.
The third goalkeeper on the flight is believed to be Koen Casteels, with Simon Mignolet set to serve as his deputy.
The most seasoned members of Belgium's defensive options, which also include Dortmund's Thomas Meunier and Leicester City's Timothy Castagne, are the former Tottenham players Jan Vertonghen and Toby Alderweireld.
In addition to knowing what is anticipated at the top level, Dedryck Boyata and Jason Denayer, wonderkid from Anderlecht Zeno Debast may be the surprise addition.
The midfield positions in Belgium is loaded with skillful players. Along with Yannick Carrasco, Leandro Trossard, and Youri Tielemans, other well-known players include Kevin De Bruyne, Axel Witsel, and others.
Thorgan Hazard of Dortmund and Alexis Saelemaekers of Milan are also anticipated to be chosen, but it will be intriguing to see if Adnan Januzaj of Sevilla is included.
Romelu Lukaku, who has scored 68 goals for Belgium overall, is a lock, as are Dries Mertens and Eden Hazard. However, there is also a ton of new attacking talent emerging, with Jeremy Doku, Yari Verschaeren, and Charles De Ketelaere all vying for a starting spot in November.
Belgium has a plethora of elite players and offensive prowess to rely on as they attempt to build off their third-place performance from four years ago and protect their No. 2 FIFA world ranking.
Martinez will need to work hard to find the correct combination, particularly at the back, as there are still numerous gaps in this player pool.
