What the coaches say

Mbappé, Ramos, Ronaldo... the big stars are back in League A
Mbappé, Ramos, Ronaldo... the big stars are back in League A

Roberto Martínez, Belgium coach: "You don't replace a player like [Vincent] Kompany in one, two, three. His departure was a long-anticipated decision. We can only wish him all the best for the rest of his career. Unfortunately, you can't have players for 100 years. That's life. [Anderlecht forward Landry Dimata] is a No9 who's got a playing style we like to use."

Kasper Hjulmand, Denmark coach: "We are up against a very strong side from Belgium; it’s a very strong group of players based on a long strategic work from the Belgian federation and the clubs, but we are also have very strong group. It's my first week as a coach. I’ve only had this week with the players but I can tell you it's a great group of players. Whats on my heart is that we are missing the fans – just looking at the empty stadium now, it hurts. But we are ready and can’t wait to get started."
