Courtois, Hazard called into Belgium squad

Julian Finney

Two Chelsea players have been called up for Belgium during the October international break. Both Thibaut Courtois and Eden Hazard were locks to get the call as long as they were healthy, and both will likely start in each of Belgium's matches. Those matches include Andora as well as Bosnia and Herzegovina.

Joining the Chelsea pair in the squad are several former Blues. Kevin De Bruyne and Romelu Lukaku both wound up making the cut, and the 23-man squad contained a full dozen players from the Premier League.

As both Belgium games are qualifiers, I'd fully expect to see both Chelsea players log significant minutes in these games. That likely won't make much of a difference for Courtois, but one would certainly hope that Marc Wilmots gets Hazard off the pitch early if the situation warrants it. Like always, here's hoping Chelsea's internationals can make it through the international break without picking up any injuries.
