Belgium preview: City’s Doku to feature?

Predicted lineup: Sels – Castagne, De Winter, Faes, Deman – Vermeeren, Vranckx, Tielemans – Bakayoko, Trossard, Openda

Jarrod Bowen sparkled as a sub against Brazil – Photo by Icon Sport

Player to watch – Jarrod Bowen

Jarrod Bowen made an excellent impression when he was introduced as a substitute in England’s loss to Brazil at the weekend and his rapid turn of pace and superb close control made him a real threat on the flank.

Bowen deserves a chance

West Ham’s Bowen has been enjoying a stellar campaign with the Irons in the Premier League in 2023/24, scoring 14 times and laying on three assists in 28 top-tier appearances so far. The 27-year-old showcased his skills as a sub against Brazil and Bowen deserves a chance to impress from the start against Belgium.
