Euros: Belgium news, fixtures, manager, key players, Euros record

Having reached the quarter-finals of the last two European Championships, Belgium will look to kick on and compete for silverware when they head to Germany for this summer's tournament.

De Rode Duivels finished top of Group F in qualifying to book their place in Germany, and they will fancy their chances of going all the way under coach Domenico Tedesco.

Manchester City's Kevin De Bruyne will be expected to lead the team to glory, in what could be his final chance to help Belgium win the tournament for the first time.

Belgium manager

Domenico Tedesco

Italian Tedesco took charge of the Belgian national team in February 2023 on a deal until the end of Euro 2024.

The former Schalke and RB Leipzig coach will have a point to prove on his return to Germany, and he is yet to lose a game with Belgium.

During his time in charge, he has steered Belgium to wins against Sweden, Germany, Austria and Serbia, while they held England to a 2-2 draw in March.

Tedesco likes his team to play attacking football, but he prefers them to control matches, so expect Belgium to try to dominate their battles in Group E.

Belgium captain

Kevin De Bruyne

Manchester City midfielder De Bruyne needs no introduction, and he is still one of the best in the world despite some recent injury problems.

Tedesco will hope De Bruyne is now raring to go and if he is fully fit then Belgium's chances of reaching the latter stages of the competition will only increase.

Belgium key players

Youri Tielemans

Aston Villa playmaker Tielemans will play a big part in Belgium's midfield this summer. Alongside De Bruyne, he is one of the most experienced players in Belgium's engine room and Tedesco will expect him to control possession and bring the attackers into the game on a regular basis.

Romelu Lukaku

Lukaku is still only 30 and has scored 13 goals for Daniele De Rossi's Roma side in Serie A this season.

Lukaku is known for his power and physical approach, and he will look to give defenders problems throughout the tournament this summer.

Belgium one to watch

Jeremy Doku

Manchester City youngster Doku is still learning his trade at the highest level, and while he has shown signs he is still raw and needs to make better decisions, he has tremendous potential.

He has speed and trickery to cause any defence problems, and he is always looking to create or score.

Belgium's Euro 2024 prospects

If De Bruyne remains fit, Belgium have a chance of progressing into the latter stages of the competition.

He is the key to everything they do in attack, but they should have no issues topping Group E at 2/5. Ukraine, Slovakia, and Romania should not pose them significant problems, especially considering their unbeaten record under Tedesco.

Lukaku's inconsistency in front of goal is a slight worry, but Belgium should be in the mix for the quarter-finals with the talent they possess within their ranks.

Tedesco's side are good value at 1/1 to reach the last eight, but they are unlikely to end their wait for a major tournament success.
