Belgian Jeremy Doku

Jeremy Doc and Leandro Trosard were called up to the Belgian team on Monday along with the usual ones for the European Championship.

Belgium coach Roberto Martinez has indicated a list of 26 players for the tournament. Also includes Eden Hazard, Romelu Lukaku and Kevin De Bruyne.

Martinez also selected a group of 11 reserve players who could increase in the event of injuries before the tournament, which opens on June 11.

Teams have the right to choose teams of 26 players instead of the usual 23 to help them cope with the coronavirus pandemic. The final teams of 26 must be submitted by June 1st.

Belgium will play in Group B, opening against Russia on June 12. The best ranked Belgians will face Denmark and Finland. Doku, an 18-year-old striker, was rewarded for his successive appearances with French club Rennes

this season, while Trossard may be an adequate replacement for Hazard, which is fighting for form.

The little striker of Brighton has similarities with Hazard, with excellent dribbling skills, good vision and sense of purpose. The 26-year-old Trosard has been more consistent with his Premier League club lately and seems to be doing at the right time.
