Today is the second installment of the What I Would Do series. Today we have a team that many overlook due to the fact that they haven’t ever made a World Cup semifinal. However, Belgium deserves your full attention on the international stage.
At goalie is Chelsea star Thibaut Courtois. His spot on the national team has never been in question after his stellar performances in the 2014 World Cup.
The back line is full-on Premier League. Tottenham has one of the EPL’s best center back tandems in Toby Alderweireld and Jan Vertonghen. Linking them together is Manchester City star Vincent Kompany.
At left midfielder is a terrific player with a mouthful of a name. Yannick Ferreira Carrasco is only 22, but has already cemented his position in the starting eleven for club and country.
At the center midfielder spots, Belgium has terrific creators and defenders in Kevin de Bruyne and Radja Nainggolan. Nainggolan had lost his spot to Axel Witsel before he went absolutely crazy at AS Roma, getting his Belgian spot back and locking it down for the foreseeable future. De Bruyne is one of the best players in the world and has arguably been Manchester City’s best player.
At right midfielder is a player you might not have heard of, but really should. Thomas Meunier has been playing so well for PSG that at times he was starting at right winger over Angel Di Maria.
At left winger, Eden Hazard needs absolutely no explanation. If you don’t know who he is, Google his name.
At striker, Everton star Romelu Lukaku was heavily linked with transfer rumors to all kinds of clubs in the summer, but he stayed at Everton. He edges out Christian Benteke for the start in the national team due to his prolific goal scoring ways.
Finally, at right winger is Napoli’s most consistent goalscorer in a long time, Dries Mertens.
