Red DevilsThe Red Devils travel to Wales without captain Eden Hazard, Thibaut Courtois, Simon Mignolet, Dennis Bright and Jason Denayer, as they face Wales on the final day of World Cup qualifiers tomorrow night. Reserve goalkeeper Tomas Kaminski was called into the extreme. This evening will be followed by a press conference with Axel Witsel and national coach Roberto Martinez. Follow it live here.
With the exception of Bright, the four internationals did not show up for training at Tubize this morning. Courtois’ absence came as no surprise. National team coach Roberto Martinez already announced on Saturday after the 3-1 win over Estonia that the national goalkeeper is not likely to travel to Cardiff. Courtois could only train once in the run-up to the qualifying match against Estonia and he took no risks. The goalkeeper may return to Madrid with his colleague Eden Hazard.
Since reserve guard Mignolet withdrew, a third guard has been called up with Kaminski. Queen Castells is likely to be among the entries against Wales. Jason Denayer was still a starting player against Estonia, and Van Praet had already known for some time that he was also suspect for Wales after losing to Estonia.
