Football: Belgium held to a draw in Ireland

Belgium, deprived of several of its executives, could not do better than a sad 0-0 in a friendly match on Saturday in Dublin against Ireland, less than three months before the start of Euro-2024. The Red Devils had to cope without their goalkeeper Thibaut Courtois, injured for a long time, nor their playmaker Kevin De Bruyne, spared and left to rest, while their center forward Romelu Lukaku had just returned from injury and did not come on stake.

In an Aviva Stadium swept by a strong wind, Domenico Tedesco's men could even have been carried away by the Irish intensity if their goalkeeper Matz Sels had not repelled a penalty from Evan Ferguson (27th).

Belgium, shaken throughout the game by the players of former Mancunian John O'Shea, had an opportunity to return from Ireland with a success, but Thomas Meunier's attempt, well served by Dodi Lukebakio, lacked power to deceive the Greens goalkeeper.

Adversity will now increase a notch for the Belgians, who will face England on Tuesday at Wembley. The teammates of Jeremy Doku, who entered play on Saturday, will be in the group of Romania, Slovakia and the winner of the play-off between Ukraine and Iceland scheduled for Tuesday.
