Waseige names his squad
Belgium coach Robert Waseige has named his 22-man squad for Euro 2000.
Veteran midfielder Danny Boffin is missing from the final 22, despite a fine season with Metz, while Ghent's goalkeeper Frederic Herpoel is drafted in to replace the injured Ronny Gaspercic.
The big surprise was the exclusion of striker Toni Brogno who has had a magnificent season with Westerlo, having finished Belgium's joint top scorer with 30 goals from 32 games.
Luc Nilis of PSV Eindhoven is back in after a self-imposed exile having only regained his first-team place for the last game against Norway.
Gilles De Bilde of relegated Sheffield Wednesday and Branko Strupar of Derby County both fly the flag for the English Premiership.
