Overview of the Belgium Team

One of the most striking features of the whole Belgium team is that the squad has managed to stay healthy and stay together for a span of almost 7 years starting from World Cup 2014 till the current Euro 2021. 

After gaining third Place in the World Cup 2018, Roberto Martinez's squad has been on the rise.

The Belgium squad for the Euro 2021 has an average age of less than 30 years.

Areas of Concern for Euro 2021

Eden Hazard's health and his ability to play 90 minutes on the pitch would be a major cause for concern for the Belgium team ahead of their Euro 2021 group games. 

Hazard's fitness has been under scanner due to his constant injuries post his transfer to Real Madrid.

Christain Benteke has been an inconsistent performer and has proved it for about 2-3 years now. 

Kevin De Bruyne reveals he suffered same injury as Billy Joe Saunders did  against Canelo Alvarez through Antonio Rudiger clash during Man City's  Champions League final defeat to Chelsea
