Belgium called on Wednesday the Belgian forward of the Real
Madrid Eden Hazard, the goalkeeper of the same club Thibaut Courtois and the Atlético de Madrid winger Yanick Carrasco to face Ivory Coast, England and Iceland.

Belgium will meet in a friendly match in Brussels against Côte d’Ivoire on October 8 and will then be measured as a visitor, within the League of Nations, against England (October 11) and Iceland (October 15).

Hazard, who has not yet played a minute with Real Madrid this season but has been called up to face Valladolid in the league this Wednesday, entered Roberto Martínez’s list in the last call to face Denmark and Iceland in early September. , even though he did not play any of the games.

On the other hand, UEFA will not allow the match against the Ivorians at the Rey Baudouin Stadium to be held with a restricted audience and capacity, as the Belgian Federation intended.

“Unfortunately, UEFA has decided that it will not allow us to welcome you to the stadium. Fingers crossed for November,” the Federation told Belgian fans on its Facebook page.
