》"The golden boot and the player of the year"

                - Selection against Gibraltar and Greece

                - Versus Gibraltar

Januzaj hasn't had a sniff of NT football in a long time. Let's hope he can get his career back on track in la Liga but barring some miracle season and a NT spot opening up I doubt he's going to Russia2018.

The aging defence worries me. Maybe also add the youth teams? I've been talking to Inter fans (local ones) and they rate Zinho Vanheusden. Really need one to come good. Hopefully Denayer moves (on loan) to a decent side as well this summer.

Anaxis Dinsifwa, Francesco Antonucci, Indy Boonen, Xian Emmers, Amadou Mvom Onana and Amine Khammas

 

Between mid tier and bottom tier (they are talented, but not full in development) (84 – 86)

 

Jorn Vancamp, Louis Verstraete, Alessandro Albanese and Hannes Delcroix

I'm not worried actually about our defence. With Kompany, Alderweireld, Vertonghen and Vermaelen we have world top defenders. Players like Kabasele, Ciman, Boyata did it well as second choice. Yes, I know, but he played for this Belgium already so in my eyes he is a national player of us. It's a long time ago, but the players who played for Belgium are in that list.

I've always wondered about Tielemans & Dendoncker, who would turn out the best.

They are both rated 88 at present but would I be right in assuming that Tielmanns being much younger & now at Monaco will turn out in the future to be the higher rated of the 2??

Thorgan, of Zinho Vanheusden, Orel M. Mangala and Dante Rigo is it likely Mangala will be the first to break through in SM terms ie playing & getting a review rise from SM or have all 3 similar chances at their respective clubs??

Thanks again...

Tielemans gets more attention, so I think Tielemans will have the highest rate of the two in the future, but if I have to chose it's Dendoncker. What an amazing player ! He played all the matches of the last season for RSC Anderlecht and his goal against Manchester United was magnificent. Orel Mangala will be the first, I think. Dante Rigo is also getting chances. For Zinho Vanheusden it's too early (he is 17) but he will be in the training in the first team more often.
