Thomas Briels not selected in Belgium Olympic 16

Shane McLeod announced this Thursday the group he will rely on in Tokyo to try to win Olympic gold. There was no longer much suspense as he only had to “drop” one player from the core (in addition to goalkeeper number 2) that he had taken to Amstelveen to play in the European Championship. . And it is a striker who was going to pay the price of this last choice since they were still 6 in contention during the Euro.

The performances during the tournament had further reduced this list and 2 Red Lions seemed to be in danger for their selection: Sebastien Dockier and Thomas Briels. And it is finally the captain (33 years old) who will make the trip to Japan as a reservist alongside Loic Van Doren and Augustin Meurmans.

A blow for the man with 352 selections (and who participated in the Olympics in 2008, 2012 and 2016) who seemed a little less on his business in recent weeks and even sometimes a little resigned to his fate.
