Belgium XI For 2022 FIFA World Cup

Romelu Lukaku and Lois Openda (ST) – Lukaku had quite a bad campaign last season. He has returned to Inter Milan this season and is doing great in Serie A again. Lois Openda might support him as an attacking partner.

Kevin De Bruyne – Probably the best midfielder in the world right now, Kevin De Bruyne won the Premier League title last season. He is surely going to be selected for the upcoming World Cup squad.
