Fulham’s Timothy Castagne will certainly be part of the Belgium squad for the European championship, according to Gazet van Antwerpen.

The right-back has been a regular for the national team ever since Domenico Tedesco took charge of De Rode Duivels more than a year ago.

Castagne joined Fulham from Leicester City last summer and is also a regular in Marco Silva’s starting lineup.

The 28-year-old has made 30 appearances for the Premier League side and that’s helped him maintain a place with Belgium. The newspaper has labelled his move to Fulham as a ‘good transfer’.

Even though the defender has been featuring regularly for his country [and club] and also does well on the right side of the back four, the report says Castagne ‘doesn’t make a huge impression’.

Therefore, Gazet van Antwerpen are of the belief that competition for the Fulham man ‘wouldn’t hurt’ the national team.

When discussing options, Thomas Meunier, who left Borussia Dortmund from Trabzonspor in the winter market, and Royale Union Saint-Gilloise’s Alessio Castro-Montes are named.

Whether that desire for competition sees Castagne rested for a game or two by Belgium remains to be seen.
