He chose the 23-year-old vleugelaanvaller Anthony Limbombe of Club Brugge. The former player of NEC Nijmegen earned by his strong performance at Bruges a chance, he believes the Spanish coach of the Red Devils.

Martinez dropped Christian Benteke out of the selection. The attacker makes a difficult season at Crystal Palace. “He is out of shape, but not out of the picture for the world cup. I want other players to see you,” said Martinez.

The Belgians play after Saudi Arabia also have training duels with Portugal, Egypt and Costa Rica. Then comes the world CHAMPIONSHIPS in Russia, where the Red Devils in the group stages Panama, England, and Tunisia find.
