Theate and De Ketelaere holders: follow Wales


Saturday evening, Belgium officially qualified for the 2022 World Cup by defeating Estonia (3-1). Qualified for their fifth consecutive major tournament (a record in Belgian history!), The Devils face Wales in the last game of the campaign on Tuesday. If the result does not change the qualification, the Belgians have an interest in winning if they want to keep first place in the FIFA rankings. On the other hand, the Welsh do not have much to gain in this meeting. If they are not yet certain to finish in second place in the group, disputed with the Czech Republic, Robert Page’s men are sure to play the play-offs next March, at worst via the Nations League.

For this last international meeting of 2021, Roberto Martinez will have to innovate due to the many absences. In addition to Lukaku, Batshuayi, Tielemans, Praet, Doku, Vermaelen and Alderweireld, already absent against Estonia, the coach will have to do without Courtois, Mignolet, Denayer and Eden Hazard. Martinez will therefore have to make several changes in his team. Starting with the goalkeeper position where Koen Casteels has preference over Sels and Kaminski. In the absence of Denayer, it is Dedryck Boyata who receives a new chance to show himself, alongside Castagne and … Theate, since Vertonghen is finally left on the bench.
