Head coach of Belgium: "Azerbaijan proved that they have no joke"

"The players and the main staff who participated in the match with Serbia will be on the field. This is not a test, we want to win and it is very important."

Idman.biz reports that this was said by Domenico Tedesco, the head coach of the Belgian national football team.

He held a press conference before the match against Azerbaijan within the EURO-2024 qualifying. An experienced specialist said that the Azərbaijani national team is strong: "They are well organized and also proved that they have no joke. Azerbaijan should not have lost to Austria, they fought better. They won against Sweden. It was difficult for us to win in Baku."

According to Tedesco, the team is fully ready for the match with Azerbaijan: "Romelu Lukaku is in good form. He needed some rest. I agreed with him that he will not play against Serbia in the previous match. He has been on the field with "Roma" a lot. Sometimes it's important to rest. He is close to reaching 100 goals in the national team. Jan Vertonghen also feels good."

It should be noted that the Belgium-Azerbaijan game will be held on November 19 at the "King Baudouin" stadium in Brussels. The meeting will start at 21:00 Baku time.
