    Who's been the best Belgium player in recent years? I'm curious how many say DeBruyne or Hazard or Lukaku or Courtois.

    De bruyne by miles. No one even near him at this moment and that will be a big problem against Portugal.

    KDB, Lukaku and Courtois have been great for you guys in the last couple years and been sensational at their clubs as well. Hazard is still my favourity Belgian player ever BUT he has had a wretched run of injuries/poor form since he left Chelsea.

    Courtois has won silverware at any club he has been. Impressive silverware cabinet so far. But Kdb has been the most impressive for me.
    Hazard was very important for Chelsea, but I don't think it will work out at Madrid. Another problem for him is his style of play invites getting kicked and fouled a lot, which adds to the injury woes with ageing.
    Lukaku is still improving, which is very impressive. A couple of years ago I never thought he would get to this level. It's interesting to see if he can add another step to the heights he reached this year.

    I do think they are. Lukaku and KDB will be around for the next two tournaments (possibly three) at an elite level. Courtois as a GK his timeline is even longer. Hazard with the injuries not sure. Back line needs a full regeneration. Tielemans, Doku, Dendoncker, Carrasco, T. Hazard and possibly De Ketalare are good pieces moving forward.

    I just don't think Kompany was adequately replaced, now I think Witsel, Vertonghen, Alderweireld and Vermaelen cannot be relied upon for anything beyond (and even this is a maybe) WC2022.

    Belgium will still be strong, but I felt 2016 and 2018 is when this incarnation was primed to win something. No shame in losing to France to be fair in 2018 but that defeat to Wales in 2016 was terrible.

    Want to say I called it and have my receipt below.
