Official: Real Madrid duo start for Belgium in friendly vs Egypt

Belgium will continue their preparations for the FIFA World Cup 2022 with a friendly encounter against Egypt today. And Real Madrid duo Eden Hazard and Thibaut Courtois have been named in the starting XI by manager Roberto Martinez.

It is an important game for the Belgian Red Devils to get some momentum behind them heading into the World Cup. Having made it as far as the semi-finals at the last World Cup, they will be keen on going a step further this time out.

And, there will be a lot of hope pinned on Hazard, who is the captain of the national team. The 31-year-old has found game-time hard to come by at the club level this season with Real Madrid, given that he has fallen out of favour under Carlo Ancelotti.

As for Courtois, he has been a permanent fixture in goal for Real Madrid and has done well and the national team will be hoping for more of the same from the goalkeeper in the coming weeks.

Atletico Madrid duo Yannick Carrasco and Axel Witsel also make it to the Belgium lineup, who will rely on Manchester City superstar Kevin De Bruyne to produce the magic on the field.
