Euro 2020, Belgium vs Portugal: Five key players who could decide the fate of the match- Belgium set to face Portugal on 28th June in the round of 16 at the Estadio de la Cartuja. The Red Devils are one of the contenders for this Euro 2020.

Euro 2020, Belgium vs Portugal: Five key players who could decide the fate of the match

Key Player 1- Romelu Lukaku (Belgium):

Romelu Lukaku has been in destructive form both for his club and country. The Belgium frontman has been scoring goals for fun and has already collected three goals in his tally.

Portugal defenders are aware of his goal scoring threats but it will be a pretty difficult task to contain him.

Key Player 2- Kevin De Bruyne (Belgium):

Kevin De Bruyne hasn’t had the desired start but has had a smooth transition into the team. The Manchester City midfielder had been nursing an injury and didn’t feature in the first match.

But he went on to be a part in the next two matches and will be one of the first names on the team sheet when they face Portugal in the round of 16.

This could be Portugal’s best chance to defend their European crown. They have accumulated a quality side this time and they can do the impossible this time.

Key Player 3- Cristiano Ronaldo (Portugal):

Cristiano Ronaldo has single handedly taken Portugal to the round of 16 and the onus will be on him to lead his country to the last eight.

The 36 year old is unlikely to be available for the next European Championship and that’s why he will try to make amends this time.

Key Player 4- Bruno Fernandes (Portugal):

Bruno Fernandes hasn’t been able to showcase his best so far. The Manchester United midfielder was even dropped in the last match as Portugal held their nerves to play a 2-2 draw with France.

But manager Fernando Santos is aware of his capability and it could be the right time to unleash the attacking midfielder against the Belgians.
