This Friday, national coach Domenico Tedesco will once again announce his selection for the next international matches of the Red Devils. And he can already count on some players in form. Johan Bakayoko, for example, impressed in the Champions League on Wednesday.
The Devils want to ensure a group win in their European Championship qualifying group during the upcoming international break. To do this, they have to keep the three points at home against Azerbaijan. In addition, an interesting practice match against tough Serbia is also on the program.
Tedesco will have to miss some players. In addition to the long-term injured Kevin De Bruyne and Thibaut Courtois, there are also question marks behind Jan Vertonghen and Charles De Ketelaere, among others. On the other hand, there are also several players in top form.
Tastemaker at PSV
For example, Romelu Lukaku continues to score for AS Roma, while Jérémy Doku is becoming an absolute trendsetter at Manchester City. And Bakayoko can also join the national team with the necessary confidence.
The lightning-fast wing attacker made his first appearances for the Devils under Tedesco and showed many promising flashes. In the meantime, he is also making an impression at his club PSV. Despite the tough competition in his position, Bakayoko has grown into a permanent strongman in coach Peter Bosz’s team.
And on Wednesday he once again thanked the undefeated leader from the Eredivisie for the confidence he had in him. In the Champions League match against RC Lens, Bakayoko started again in the starting line-up. After just 12 minutes, the attacker already made his mark with a wonderful assist for Luuk de Jong. It was already his ninth assist of the season for the Belgian.
