🏆 Euro 2020: Belgium names star-studded 26-man squad

World number-one ranked Belgium has named a strong 26-man squad with the aim of winning the nation's first major honours.

UEFA recently agreed to temporarily increase the permitted squad size for the tournament from the usual 23 up to 26 in light of extra physical demands placed on players in the 2020-21 season.

The Belgium Red Devils were shocked by Wales at Euro 2016 in the quarterfinal stage, and Roberto Martinez's men will be determined to go further, if not all the way, this time.
