Opinion Belgium's top three players

Belgium’s top three players


Belgium has failed to taste success in international tournaments since their 1920 Olympic triumph. While silverware has kept a distance from the Red Devils, they have consistently produced some of the finest footballers across Europe. The Red Devils do not necessarily have a rich history in football. However, their current ‘Golden Generation’ consists of some of the best players in the game at the moment as the side finished third in the 2018 World Cup and are currently the top-ranked team in the world. This generation of footballers is the best that Belgian football betting can ever get.

Let’s take a look at the top players Belgium has produced:

Kevin De Bruyne

Often described as a complete football player, Kevin De Bruyne is also widely regarded as one of the best players of his generation. Over the years, he has had a significant impact on the Manchester City Football FC, helping his team win several games. He is often described as a complete footballer.

De Bruyne has been named in the UEFA Champions League Squad of the Season and the IFFHS Men’s World Team four times each, the UEFA Team of the Year and the ESM Team of the Year three times each, the France Football World XI, and the Bundesliga Team of the Year. He has also won the Premier League Playmaker of the Season twice, Manchester City’s Player of the Year three times, the PFA Players’ Player of the Year twice, the UEFA Champions League Midfielder of the Season twice.

Romelu Lukaku

Romelu Lukaku, the Belgian football player, is known for his goal-scoring abilities. He plays in the forward position and can also play as a winger. Having made his international debut at just age 16, Romelu Lukaku is now the all-time leading goalscorer for the Red Devils. He has scored 64 goals in 98 appearances.

The 2018 World Cup was Belgian’s best World Cup performance and Lukaku’s best tournament for Belgium as well. The instinctive frontman started every game and scored four goals as Belgium grabbed the bronze medal, finishing second on the top scorer’s list. 

Vincent Kompany

He is the current manager of Belgian club RSC Anderlecht. He most notably played for Manchester City for 11 seasons, whom he captained for eight seasons. He represented the Belgium national team for 15 years, whom he captained for seven years. 

Kompany began his professional career at Anderlecht; having graduated from their youth system, he was with the club for three seasons as a first-team player before moving to Bundesliga club Hamburg in 2006. 

In the summer of 2008, at the age of 22, he completed a transfer to Premier League club Manchester City. He established himself as an integral part of the squad. He was regarded as one of the bargain buys of the revolutionised City era, blossoming into one of the league’s best centre-backs. 

In the 2011–12 season, he was awarded the captaincy of Manchester City, leading his club to win the Premier League that season, their first league title in 44 years.
