It's almost time for the Red Devils again, because on 21 March (Russia at home) and 24 March (Cyprus away), the European Championship qualification campaign for 2020 will be launched by captain Eden Hazard and co. Kevin De Bruyne is currently still injured, but the 27-year-old from Drongen knows that there are still eight international matches to come, with confrontations against Scotland, Kazakhstan and San Marino.
National coach and technical director of the Belgian Football Federation Roberto Martínez followed more than 50 professionals in recent months, to release his final list of selections for the first confrontations tomorrow/Friday. But the 45-year-old Spanish coach, who guided our national team to an historic third place at last year's World Cup in Russia, was also secretly negotiating for another top event. Following in the footsteps of his compatriot Pep Guardiola, the Manchester City success manager who visited the KDB Cup last year, Roberto Martínez will be a notable guest at the fourth edition of the KDB Cup in Drongen !
Our national coach told chairman Paul Naudts and Tournament Leader Jeroen Verhille that he is very curious about the achievements of the U15 players among the participants. RSC Anderlecht (winner last year), FC Barcelona, Bayern Munich, Club Brugge KV, Chelsea FC, Feyenoord Rotterdam, KAA Gent, KRC Genk, Manchester City, Odense Boldklub, PSG and PSV.
The online ticket sales for the tournament has now started.
