“This friendly match is a perfect step in order to be ready for the World Cup. The players have to make the switch very quickly between their championship and the World Cup. We will not field the same team as the one I We are thinking about Canada. We will adapt to those who need it most, for example. We are working very hard to try to get everyone in shape at the right time.”he continued.
And the national coach to add: “Eden Hazard will receive at least 60 minutes. It will also depend on the turn of the meeting. He’s our captain. You gain confidence when you play. I see him smiling, he is excited to participate in this tournament. To be frank, I don’t know the composition for Friday yet. It will depend on today’s practice session. We will use the game to give playing time to those who need it. We have to look at the injured, those who feel tired, etc.
“Michy Batshuayi and Lois Openda will exchange the place of number 9 (note: they will therefore probably not play together), it is an opportunity for them to play in view of the absence of Romelu Lukaku. Amadou Onana ? Everything is fine physically for him. Thomas Miller also is ready to play”concluded Roberto Martinez.
