How far will Belgium go?

Belgium might be ranked No.2 in the world but they don’t go into Euro 2016 as one of the favourites. Despite having an impressive squad that is packed with plenty of grit and flair, they are dark horses at best.

While the scenario is pretty similar to the 2014 World Cup where many expected them to impress only for them to disappoint and crash out, Marc Wilmots will be hoping that lightning does not strike twice for the Red Devils.

So who will make the starting XI and who will miss out? Here is the probable starting 11 for the Red Devils:

Goalkeeper – Thibaut Courtois

Courtois will need to improve on his performances for Chelsea last season

While it is true that Thibaut Courtois didn't have the greatest season for Chelsea in 2015/16, part of it was down to his injuries and the other can just be attributed to him being off colour, which for a goalkeeper who just last month turned 24 is understandable.

Still, there can be little doubt that the Belgian shot-stopper isn't one of the best in the business and one slightly off the boil season isn't going to change that. Only four teams conceded fewer goals than Belgium in the qualifying stage for Euro 2016 and if they are to make waves in the tournament, they will be heavily reliant on their keeper to make critical interventions.
