Since joining Real Madrid in 2018, Thibaut Courtois has been outstanding. He is currently one of the top goalkeepers in the world and has been Belgium's number one for a long time.

Courtois has a keen understanding of placement and outstanding reflexes and decision-making abilities. He also has a flair for marshalling his backline and has excellent command of his territory. Courtois, who is 6'7", is a large goalkeeper who may be difficult to beat in one-on-one scenarios.

In 51 appearances for Real Madrid in all competitions in the 2020-21 season, the 29-year-old maintained a total of 21 clean sheets.

#2 Romelu Lukaku (Chelsea)

Belgium's Romelu Lukaku has been a monster up front. He is a prolific goalscorer who has always been a dependable presence in the Belgian Red Devils' frontline. In 100 appearances for the national team, he has 67 goals.

He was the Nerazzurri's finest player as they won Serie A for the first time in 11 years in the 2020-21 season. Lukaku made 44 appearances for Inter Milan past season, scoring 30 goals and providing 10 assists in all competitions.

The 28-year-old, who has since joined Chelsea, also had a strong showing at Euro 2020. He was one of Belgium's top performers at the continental event, scoring four goals in five games for Roberto Martinez's team.

#1 Kevin De Bruyne (Manchester City)

In the Pep Guardiola era, Kevin De Bruyne has been perhaps Manchester City's most significant player. The 30-year-old is largely regarded as one of the best footballers in the world, and his incredible abilities have been instrumental in City's recent success.

De Bruyne is a versatile midfielder who can play on both sides of the field. He is a dedicated worker who is not afraid to take on defensive responsibilities. He has a powerful strike and can go toe-to-toe with any foot. For the 2020-21 season, he was named PFA Players' Player of the Year. Last season, De Bruyne scored 10 goals and added 18 assists in 40 appearances for Manchester City in all competitions.
