One of Real Madrid's biggest stars is in the eye of the storm after a controversy with another top player over the captaincy of his national team sparked a real controversy on the continent and have consecuences in the eyes of Carlo Ancelotti's decision to have it in the frame squad.

Thibaut Courtois is one of the big reasons why Real Madrid remain in the top flight and even won a UEFA Champions League recently. His saves have been phenomenal and he is one of Carlo Ancelotti's non-transferable assets at Real Madrid. He knows that there is no other player of his type at the moment in any top European club

That is why he is one of the stalwarts of Belgium's great generation of recent years. Along with Kevin de Bruyne and Eden Hazard, he was the terror of the qualifiers for the Russia 2018 and Qatar 2022 World Cups. Although under Roberto Martinez they were never able to reach the semi-finals and the golden generation slowly began to fade away due to age or their level of football.  

Now with coach Domenico Tedesco a storm has broken out that could mean the retirement of the goalkeeper from the Belgian national team, and run the risk of being eliminated from the highest European competition of countries, which could be the redemption of a team that has carried the nickname of 'dark horse' but has never been able to lift a title with a generation full of world stars who are in the best clubs on the planet.
