Roberto Martinez (Belgium coach): “This is not the situation we expected. But if we want to be competitive, we must be able to find solutions. The solutions are the players we have in the squad. They must respond present and perform well. That’s why they are in the national team. You can’t win a tournament with only eleven players. I think it has been proven in modern football.
You have to share the playing time and adapt to reality. So far, we are happy with Axel’s progress (witsel). It’s also a good thing that Kevin (Debruyne) does not need to be operated. And we are satisfied to see that Eden (Hazard) seems to be progressing day by day. We are moving forward little by little. “
