Arsenal Leandro Trossard is a ‘certainty’ to be on the Belgium bus travelling to the Euros next summer, having convinced everyone he is worthy of his place.
That’s according to HLN, who say that while Jérémy Doku was wowing again in the recent win over Azerbaijan, it was the Arsenal man who ‘pulled off the most wonderful action’ of the game.
They detail how in the 36th minute of the game Trossard picked up a ‘somewhat lost ball’ by flipping it up over an oncoming player, before nutmegging the next opponent on an impressive run towards goal that eventually resulted in a corner.
He’s not assured of a starting place for Belgium or Arsenal but both Domenico Tedesco and Mikel Arteta ‘rate the former Genkie highly’.
That’s been demonstrated in Euro qualifying as Trossard has only managed four starts and 296 minutes in total but in those he’s managed two goals, the same tally as Dodi Lukebakio and better than most of the squad, other than Romelu Lukaku.
It’s a similar story at Arsenal, where he moves between the starting XI and the bench regularly but remains an ‘important like in Arteta’s cogs’.
And it is because of this that he is a ‘certainty on the Tedesco bus to Germany’, where he will be hoping to help Belgium to do better than they have previously and continue his own good form.
