Belgium are able to welcome Kevin De Bruyne back into their starting lineup for tonight’s Euro 2020 quarter-final showdown with Italy in Munich.

Both De Bruyne and Eden Hazard were "50-50" for the game, according to head coach Roberto Martinez, after picking up injuries against Portugal. The Manchester City man had a bruised left ankle while injury-prone Hazard suffered a hamstring issue.
