Is it Time to Rebuild For Belgium After Their Golden Generation Failed?

Belgium crashed out of the Euro 20 after losing to Italy in the quarter final of this year's Euros. The likes of Eden Hazard, Kevin De Bruyne, Thibaut Curtois, Romelu Lukaku and Dries Martens and many more were all part of Belgium's golden generation.

Since their emergency into the team, the team has always been to win and have often been refered to a team of all stars, but tournament after tournament they have failed with their loss to Mancini's Italy the last straw.Manager Roberto Martinez should now have a rethink of his team.

The next team at the next major tournament should be different, with the likes of youngster Jeremy Doku being at the centre of it.The Rennes youngster proved to be a capable replacement of Captain Eden Hazard.The youngster took to the pitch in the last eight of the Euros without fear, against Italy.

The defense is also an issue for Martinez as the likes of Varmalean are too old for the young team. At 36 and currently plying his trade at a lower league outside Europe at Vissel Kobe, he should likely not be in the team. Should Belgium replace their stars with young stars likes Doku?
