De Bruyne made captain of the Red Devils
Football great Kevin De Bruyne is now officially the captain of Belgium’s national football squad.
After our national hero Eden Hazard opted for an early retirement from his international career following the 2022 World Cup, the role of captain of the Red Devils was up for grabs.
Just as Hazard’s departure marked the end of an era, De Bruyne’s new responsibilities coincide with the Devils’ first training under new coach Domenico Tedesco as they prepare to face off in a Euro 2024 qualifier against Sweden and a friendly match against Germany.
Now that De Bruyne is captain, the roles of vice-captain go to legendary goalkeeper Thibaut Courtois and striker extraordinaire Romelu Lukaku.
De Bruyne, who made his national squad debut on 11 August 2010, has said that “it’s a proud moment to be captain of the national team,” adding that he hopes he can “fulfil that role well.”
May Kevin successfully lead the national squad into a new era under the expert eye of Domenico Tedesco!
