Hazard - De Bruyne - Januzaj

Kevin must be :fap: :fap:

Cheering for them in the WC. Hope they do great as underdogs as they have excellent young team.

And they have Witsel in the midfield. Fellaini also plays well for them and they have Dembele too.

Courtois, Mignolet are good GKs, Courtois is excellent and Mignolet is good back up keeper.

They don't have good full backs. They rely on Vertonghen as LB which IMO is wrong as it makes their CB weaker with Vermaelen.

Also they have Bakkali who is very highly rated by PSV.

Hazard, Mertens, Mirallas, Januzaj, Chadli as attacking players behind Lukaku.

That's a very good unit, just that they may choke as they lack experience.

I think he's def going. There is a reason announcement that he'd play for Belgium was made right before the provisional squad for World Cup list is sent out in a few days. Some backdoor "negotiating".

I think that means Nainggolan is out.

Nah, don't think Nainggolan will be dropped. Simons perhaps will be dropped.

Or they can play 4-2-3-1 with Hazard, Mertens, Mirallas/Januzaj behind striker (which would be very attacking) or use Januzaj as impact sub as he can play as LW, RW or AM.

Btw in a year or 2 he will be first choice player IMO.

Hazard, Mertens and Mirallas are certainties on the wings. Dembélé/Fellaini/De Bruyne will be the ones on 10, perhaps Januzaj as well

Hazard - De Bruyne - Januzaj

That's one amazing attack for creativity, although prefer Mertens over Januzaj tho. Mertens tha bawwwss

And they have Witsel in the midfield. Fellaini also plays well for them and they have Dembele too.

Witsel is with certainty along Kompany the most important guy in our selection. Dictates the game, creative force, defensive as well; class.
Fellaini's last games suck though, and Dembélé's been eating bench a lot at Tottenham..

Bakkali hasn't played a single full match since Ruiz came to PSV, he won't make the NT selection for the WC.

Yeah, Hazard, Kompany and Witsel are for sure starters, I'l also add Vertonghen to the list.

Playing Fellaini as #10 means Belgium can't keep the ball on the ground isn't it? Would love to see him playing in CM and a proper #10 playing behind striker. Not Dembele or Fellaini. Maybe Witsel, Fellaini and De Bruyne midfield with De Bruyne as advanced midfielder would be good too with Fellaini bombing forward everytime.

The thing with starting Fellaini is, that somehow all our set pieces are straightly directed to him, throw ins, FK's, corners, it's really annoying since he's perhaps 20 % effective with it. Fellaini imo is best as CM to win duels and recover the ball. Along Witsel and De Bruyne he'd have 2 ball playing players with him.


---Witsel -- Fellaini ---
----- De Bruyne ------

would be perfect, but Wilmots always prefered Witsel as sole DM

My friend and I will be cheering for them in the WC, seem such a nice, young team!! We don't know all of their players, but we did hear about a bunch of them, mostly for the BPL :D
What will be their starting team? Is Kevin De Bruyne that good? Where does he play, as an inside midfielder, a winger? Pardon my ignorance, but I don't watch many Bundesliga matches...

:proud:

Most likely starting team will be


--------------------------------------- Courtois
Alderweireld --------- Vermaelen -------------- Kompany (C) ------- Vertonghen
--------------------------------------- Witsel
------------------------- De Bruyne -------------- Fellaini/Dembele (depends on opponent)
Mertens ------------------------------- Lukaku ----------------------------- Hazard


De Bruyne plays as playmaker/AM, mostly has a free role. For the NT he plays extremely good. Combines speed, technique and vision with assists and goals.

Key Figures

- Kompany : unreplaceable leader of defense and captain.
- Witsel : Wilmots uses him as defensive midfielder/dlp. Engine of the squad. Extremely important in defense as in offense
- De Bruyne : playmaker and connects to all players.
- Lukaku : only striker we have and also in lethal form. Scores all balls he gets in front of goal.

haha is Januzaj that good? I never watch Man U but got him in Fifa 14 and turns out to be awesome. Belgiums got a sick squad I can't wait for the cup to start. I want to see a new Champion this time around

I obviously want Colombia to win but as long as England, Spain or France don't win I'll be happy. FUCK those 3 countries !!

No he isn't. I was just kidding.

He has the potential to be very very good player though.

It all depends on how the group stage goes. We have excellent players. But they need to play with their heart, mind and focus on Belgium. We can't use a lazy Hazard.

But yeah, we believe we can reach semis with lots of luck

Excellent individual players but no team play at all.
Sort of England when they had big players like Rio, Terry, Lampard, Gerrard, Rooney, Cole.

That's not true though. Belgium is a team, we focus on that a lot. All players get along, wether they're Frenchspeaking or Dutchspeaking.

Wilmots made us an unit with as leader Kompany. But yeah, we'll see what happens

I have a soft spot for this NT because they got a good young promosing team and I have close relatives who live in Belgium...in Liege.
So Forza Belgium I guess.

England players get along too, for example Rooney's best mate was Ashley Cole, Gerrard and Rooney are close. I meant in the game they look so disjointed like England.

Belgium.... Don't shit your pants like Uruguay and Japan!!!!

This to me is the most exciting Euro team. I had big hopes for Croatia as well but after seeing their goalie I gave up on them.
