Belgium's so-called golden generation of soccer talent has yet to clinch a major title. Now, a new wave of ambitious youngsters, guided by seasoned veterans, steps up to compete at the European Championship.

After a disappointing exit at the 2022 World Cup, Belgium's team has been revitalized under coach Domenico Tedesco. Taking the helm in February, Tedesco, 38, has since maintained an unbeaten record. His strategy focuses on promising emerging talents aiming to win Belgium's first major title, earning him a contract extension until 2026.

As key players retired post-World Cup, Tedesco introduced new faces like Jeremy Doku and Johan Bakayoko, while diminishing the roles of older members. These young talents now have the opportunity to make their mark at the Euros. Meanwhile, seasoned players like Romelu Lukaku and Kevin De Bruyne are crucial in guiding the youthful squad. Despite internal conflicts, like the one with Real Madrid's Thibaut Courtois, optimism remains high. Tedesco's blend of new and experienced players aims to turn Belgium's potential into a historic achievement.
