Setting things straight in style
As I predicted yesterday, Belgium had to make a statement against Belarus after the poor draw against Czech Republic. And so they did. But not in the way I suspected. Coach Roberto Martinez did 8 changes in the base eleven. And so Belgium started with a B-squad. Strange, but a good gamble by Martinez. Belgium played freshly, very attacking, and Belarus appeared to be just a sparring partner. Belgium scored eight times, amongst them a few beautiful goals. 6 different players scored, which really shows the strength of this Belgium. There is loads of quality, even without Hazard, De Bruyne or Lukaku.
Yesterday, Trossard (2), Vanaken (2), Praet, Doku, Batshuayi and Benteke scored. What an incredible wealth!
Beware for this Belgium on the Euros this summer!
