So, let’s bring up a few of these players and talk about them!

Thibaut Courtois

Courtois is a man built for the most difficult of situations. And he is one of the best Belgian goalkeepers of all time. The 27-year-old was the best goalkeeper in the 2018 World Cup, making more saves than any other shot-stopper, and he was especially impressive in the Red Devils’ 2-1 triumph over Brazil.

He was one of the best Belgian football players ever to grace the Premier League.

Eden Hazard

This man needs no introduction. Probably the best Belgium to play in the Premier League, Eden Hazard was a touch of class and poise when he played for the Chelsea blues.

Since then, he has been a consistent name on the team sheet and has been instrumental for Belgium in all major international competitions.
