On the eve of the match against Estonia, Belgium midfielder Kevin De Bruyne was able to speak at a press conference on various issues related to the World Cup but also to his future with the national team.

Among the topics addressed, that of the tournament every 2 years: "At the beginning of the season, I had a meeting with people from FIFA and Arsene Wenger to explain what they want to do. I don't think it's a bad idea in itself. But of course, to do this, the associations of all countries, UEFA and FIFA have to coordinate, "said De Bruyne. "Everyone must work together. And I insisted on a second point: I told them that it is absolutely necessary to maintain a real period of rest for us players, at the end of the season. But the idea itself is not bad ... provided that everyone in the world collaborate ".

A passage also on his moment and his future: "After the European Championship I did not rest mentally and physically. I played against Italy with infiltrations and this worsened the situation. Even when I had some holidays I had a swollen ankle and I had to think about taking care of myself. In any case, I'm ambitious and we want to improve third place in the World Cup. This is the goal. If I play after Qatar 2022? We'll see how I feel. I'm not very young anymore. It will depend on how I feel ", his words reported by HLN.
