Hazard stays in Belgium ... and Yannick Carrasco returns

Follow the dance of players in the Belgian concentration. While the madridista continues and De Bruyne and Batshuayi join, the rojiblanco returns.


The reunion in the national teams, almost ten months after the last window last November, is leaving anomalous concentrations, with many peculiarities. Belgium is a good example. Due to the inactivity of most of his players, whose preseason is being with his national team instead of with his club, Roberto Martínez called 29 players.

In that summons there were four goalkeepers because, as AS recounted, there was an agreement with Courtois to leave the group before flying to Denmark. Another meta, Hendrik Van Crombrugge (replaced by Davy Roef), Boyata, Cobbaut, Chadli and Origi had also previously been dropped from the list, all for physical reasons.

Hazard and the risk of not returning

With Benteke, it had been decided together with his club that he would not count on this occasion and Vermaelen did not receive permission from the Japanese authorities due to the regulations around the coronavirus. In addition, De Bruyne left Tubize for his next paternity and has rejoined this Sunday, after missing the game in Denmark (0-2). Batshuayi has also arrived as a reinforcement.

Hazard has stayed, something that they did not want at Real Madrid. At first, the option that neither he nor Courtois would come to the call of the Belgian Red Devils was considered, but it did not work. Then the goalkeeper insisted on returning, training already in Valdebebas on Saturday. Eden is carrying out an individualized plan, according to the specialists of the white club, and only on Friday he exercised with his teammates. One of the objectives of this international break is for him to gain pace, something very important in his preparation, with the matches, but on Saturday he had no minutes. That erases the idea of being absent after the first day: he will jump to the grass on Tuesday, as explained from Belgium to this newspaper. Meanwhile, the rojiblanco Carrasco has returned to Madrid ... 444 444
