Belgium coach Aimé Anthuenis has announced a 19-man squad for the upcoming EURO 2004™ qualifiers against Andorra and Estonia.
Nick Van Kerckhoven and FC Schalke 04 striker Emile Mpenza have not made the squad as they are still struggling with the effects of long-term injuries suffered earlier in the year. Feyenoord's Thomas Buffel is likely to gain his debut in place of Mpenza after his impressive performances of late for the Dutch UEFA Cup holders.
De Cock called up
As a consequence of the 2-0 home defeat against Bulgaria in the first Group 8 qualifier, SBV Vitesse defender Stijn Vreven has been left out, Olivier De Cock and Celtic FC's Joos Valgaeren instead receive call-ups.
Andorra host Belgium on 12 October, with the game against Estonia - who drew 0-0 in Croatia in their opening fixture - being played in Tallinn four days later.
De Vlieger, Herpoel, De Cock, Dheedene, Simons, Valgaeren, Van Buyten, Van der Heyden, Baseggio, Daerden, Vanderhaghe, Buffel, Englebert, Goor, Soetaers, Thijs, Mbo Mpenza, Peeters, Sonck.
