Belgium: Doubts about Hazard and de Bruyne

The question is actually about one hundred crore rupees. The champion team of Euro will get 10 million Euros, which is about one hundred crore rupees in Bangladeshi currency. The search for the answer to that question will start on June 11 and end on July 11. Finding the answer to this question can be easy for you if you know the details of the 24 teams going to participate in the Euro.

2014 World Cup and 2018 Euro quarter finals, then third place in the last World Cup. Will Lukaku-de Bruinara be able to have the last laugh in this series of improvements? Coach Roberto Martinez has announced a 26-member squad for the Euros. How was the team?

Michi Batshuai has been ‘punished’ by the Belgian Football Federation for leaking the news on Twitter that he forgot to be in his team before the official team was announced. Not much, 50 push-ups on the first day of practice.

There is no reason to think that Batsuai will get a chance in the starting XI as he has got a place in the squad. With so many talented players in Belgium, Batshuai might have to be content to sit on the bench. And this is the place of the biggest power in Belgium.

Despite the injury of regular captain Eden Hazard, there is no need to say much about the attacking side of the team that won the Euro ticket by scoring in every match of the qualifying round.

Romelu Lukaku has scored 30 goals in 44 appearances in all tournaments this season, including his 24 goals in 36 league games, helping Juventus dominate Inter Milan’s Serie A win. De Bruyne is the best midfielder in Europe at this time. Tieleman won the FA Cup against Leicester, Ferreira-Carasco was one of the heroes of Atletico Madrid’s La Liga victory over Real-Barca

De Bruyne was also injured before the start of the tournament.

In addition to the defense, Toby Alderweireld and Ian Verton made the attack with perfect passes from behind. Thibaut Courtois, the best goalkeeper of the 2018 World Cup, is still in great form.

Belgium coach Roberto Martinez understands that the team has traditionally been weak in fullback positions and strong in midfield and attack. That’s why Martinez has been playing Belgium 3-4 from the beginning.

None of those who play as a wingback in this table are very good at defense, so the presence of an extra centerback in the XI to reduce the pressure of defense on them. Belgium now scores less goals, more attacks. As a coach, Martinez’s intelligence is also one of Belgium’s strengths.

The big question is whether Eden Hazard, the team’s regular captain, will be able to play in the starting XI at all due to injury. Kevin de Bruyne has been ruled out of the Champions League final on May 29 with an injury.

There are fears about whether the two will be able to play after recovering from injuries and how they will play in the Euros. Hazard-de Bruyne’s game will change Belgium’s strategy. Maybe Belgium’s fate in the euro.

Martinez is a little worried about the place on the left side of the defense. Martinez, Thorgan Hazard, Yannick-Ferreira Carrasco or Nasser Shadli, who regularly play in this place, all play as winger in their respective clubs. Leicester City’s fullback Castanie could be a great option in that case, who can play both right and left in parallel.

Who will be Tielemans’ partner in the middle is also in the fog. Belgium are not getting a reliable central midfielder like Musa Dembele. Borussia Dortmund’s Axel Witsel has yet to return to action after suffering a foot injury in January. There is also uncertainty about how Witsell will play in the Euro squad. His replacement is Leander Dendankar of Wolverhampton.

It remains to be seen how well Leon’s Jason Denier can replace Vincent Company as the team’s third centerback in the big tournament.

We know how important Eden Hazard is to our team. Her injury rehabilitation process is quite satisfactory

Possible XI and play strategy (3-4-3)

Courtois; Alderweireld, Denier, Vertone; Monien, Tielemans, Dendankar, Ferreira-Carasco; De Bruyne, Lukaku, Mertens

Denier in the middle of the three centerbacks, Alderweireld on his right, Verton on his left. With the ball under Belgium’s control, the three took up positions with plenty of space between themselves. Much like dividing the width of the field into three parts. Alderweireld and Verton’s position is a lot like a fullback. Wingbacks like Carasco on the right and Carasco or Thorgan Hazard on the left can jump up to snatch the ball from the opponent.

Kevin de Bruyne played as a central midfielder in the last World Cup, often connecting with the attack with the ball from below. De Bruyne is no longer playing so low due to Eden Hazard’s continued absence due to the rise and injury of Tielemans. Above played as a right forward.

De Bruyne and two others (Mertens, Hazard or Doku) do not play the role of the traditional winger, leaving Lukaku in the middle of the attack. Instead, Lukaku ran around in the empty spaces looking for opportunities to attack. Lukaku himself went down and gave the two assistant forwards a chance to go up.

The top three constantly changed places to confuse the opposition, the ideal of which was seen in the quarter-finals against Brazil in the 2018 World Cup.

Expectations and realities

Belgium is going to go to the next round after being the best in the group. De Bruyne-Lukakura will actually want to laugh at the end of the final. This golden generation of Belgium will not get much chance to win a big title. It would be unfortunate to be knocked out before the semi-finals with such a team
