Euro 2020, Belgium Squad: After missing out on the best chance to become world champions in 2018, Belgium’s golden generation will now try their luck at the European Championship. Placed in Group B, the Red Devils will be the favourites to finish at the top of the table. To everyone’s surprise Roberto Martinez has decided to include out-of-form Eden Hazard in the squad. The Real Madrid forward has played less than 10 games this season which was marred with injury. However, Mancini hopes Hazard will get fit in time to start for Belgium.
Belgium in Group B of Euro 2020: Ranked world No.1, Belgium possess two of the best players in their prime – Kevin De Bruyne and Romelu Lukaku. It amalgmated by an ageing yet effective defence. However, this will be the last chance of the golden generation to claim a trophy. Their biggest rivals in the group would be Denmark.
The Danes, led by Christian Eriksen and Keeper Schmeichel can be party-poopers if taken lightly. Russia, who were the giant-killers at the 2018 World Cup, can pose threat too.
