    Yep, I thought they would let Bosnia have the win after those schoolboy errors from our defence ... but the team deserves credit for fighting their way back into the game ... even without Fellaini and Nainggolan (still disgusted about his exclusion).

    Not KDB's day, again ... sure, the pitch was horrible and tackles were hard but he wasn't the only one on the team that had to suffer through it ... once we're in Russia let's hope KDB starts performing for country like he used to ... hoping Kompany will be fully fit and in top form too (he said he'd retire after Russia2018 and it's always great to end on a high note) ... up front, Mertens didn't show up and Batsman liked spending time offside too much (as a sub his strike rate is phenomenal though and in Russia he could have an impact as a squaddie). Maybe this time round we'll have a team going into a major tournament that's tactically and mentally prepared ... the team spirit already looked good and quality-wise the players have improved plus we can finally field an XI with all players in their prime (as opposed to EURO2016 where we started the youngest XI in the history of the tournament).

    This is the most talented squad in Belgian history. They haven't shown the grinta of the 82-90 squads or the 2002 squad, but talent wise if this group can't make a deep run win a tournament if will be a shame.

    Hazard/KDB/Mertens/Lukaku/Nainggolan (if Martinez gets his head out) Alderweireld/Vertonghen/Carrasco/Tielemans/Meunier/Kompany ( if healthy) /Courtois

    Loved the 86 team but they didn't anywhere have this much talent.

    Pathetic decision to leave Radja Nainggolan at home. Martinez shows he is not a top coach. A great man-manager knows how to deal even with big personalities like Radja Nainggolan. Martinez didn't even try to do so.
