The senior figure of the side and the most-capped player in the history of the Belgian national team, Jan Vertonghen remains a key part of the national team as he provides the defensive cover for the attacking flair that defines this current Belgian squad.
Having started his senior career with Ajax, Vertonghen made the switch to Tottenham Hotspur in 2012 and spent the next eight years at the London club before moving to Benfica in 2020. Made his international debut for Belgium in June 2007 in a 2-1 defeat to Portugal and represented his country at the Olympic Games the following year.
One of the most talented players in the European game, Eden Hazard made his name in France with Lille having come through the youth ranks of the club, but it was his move to Chelsea in 2012 that provided him with the platform to confirm is status as one of the greatest players of his generation.
Playing over 350 games for the London club, Hazard made the switch to Real Madrid in 2019. A centurion for the Belgian national team after making his debut back in 2008, Hazard is the current team captain and remains a pivotal part of their attacking play.
A familiar face from his time in the English Premier League with Aston Villa, Liverpool and current club Crystal Palace.
Born in Zaire, Benteke and his family arrived in Belgium when he was a child, and he came through the youth ranks at Standard Liège and Genk and played senior football for both clubs before he joined Aston Villa in August 2012 for a reported fee of £7m.

The striker joined Liverpool for £32.5m in 2015, and the following summer moved to Crystal Palace for an initial £27m fee.
