Belgium Without De Bruyne But With Lestienne
Belgium without De Bruyne but with Lestienne. Kevin De Bruyne misses the upcoming duels from Belgium with San Marino and Kazakhstan in the European Championship qualification.
The Manchester City player has not recovered sufficiently from a groin injury.
Maxime Lestienne is included in a selection of 28 internationals.
The former PSV player started the new season well with Standard Luik.
He already scored five times in eight games.
Lestienne was called up for the national team in 2013 but didn’t get any playing time.
Roberto Martinez, the current national coach of Belgium, also misses the injured Koen Casteels,
Jason Denayer and Vincent Kompany.
Belgium will play against San Marino in Brussels on 10 October and will visit Kazakhstan three days later.
After six qualifying matches, Belgium is still without a loss of points.
