Quality footballer

Dembele is one of the best midfielders in the Premier League and is a key figure in the current Tottenham team.

The 30-year-old, though, is not guaranteed a place in Belgium's starting lineup, and that is mainly due to the quality of players in the Red Devils’ squad.

Belgium have some of the best players on the planet, and Roberto Martinez’s side will be aiming to go all the way in Russia and win the World Cup.
