“In defence, Jan Vertonghen remains our best player, he saved us in the final stretch. The rest of us didn’t make many mistakes either, although not all of them have the same confidence. But to be fair: despite my doubts about the quality of our defence, we didn’t concede Only three goals in these qualifiers.
There is a big call to bring back seniors, but according to the president, it’s not necessary. “I don’t think it’s a good idea to remember, for example, Axel Witsel or Toby Alderweireld. These are not long-term solutions.”
“Young people have the future. I can’t say a bad word about Matz Szils either. He took the balls he had to take. There wasn’t much he could do about those goals,” Rice concludes.
