Waseige names his squad
Luc Nilis
Luc Nilis returns after exile
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.


Belgium squad:

Goalkeepers: Filip De Wilde (Anderlecht), Frederic Herpoel (Ghent), Geert De Vlieger (Willem II Tilburg).

Defenders: Eric Deflandre (Club Brugge), Philippe Leonard (Monaco), Lorenzo Staelens (Anderlecht), Joos Valgaeren (Roda), Eric Van Meir (Lierse), Jacky Peeters (Arminia Bielefeld), Nico Van Kerckhoven (Schalke 04).

Midfielders: Philippe Clement (Club Brugge), Bart Goor (Anderlecht), Mark Hendrikx (Genk), Yves Vanderhaeghe (Anderlecht), Johan Walem (Parma), Gert Verheyen (Club Brugge), Mbo Mpenza (Sporting Lisbon), Marc Wilmots (Schalke 04).

Strikers: Gilles De Bilde (Sheffield Wednesday), Emile Mpenza (Schalke 04), Luc Nilis (PSV Eindhoven), Branko Strupar (Derby County).
