Waseige still undecided

Derby's Strupar failed to impress against Denmark
Belgium coach Robert Waseige admits he has yet to finalise his starting line-up for Saturday's Euro 2000 opener against Sweden.

Following several lacklustre performances in the 2-2 draw against Denmark, questions still remain about the Belgian's best defensive and attacking options.

But major changes seem to be out of the question as Waseige said: "I'm not a coach to put a player out as the result of one bad match."

Derby County forward Branko Strupar made his return against Denmark after a six-week layoff due to backand hip injuries, but failed to impress.

Deflandre: lacklustre
Waseige has yet to reveal whether Strupar or PSV Eindhoven striker Luc Nilis will begin against the Swedes in the Euro 2000 curtain-raiser.

Poor play in defence by Eric Deflandre of Club Bruges and AS Monaco's Philippe Leonard against the Danish also put their starting places in doubt.

The conservative Waseige is, however, likely to favour stability, and said: "I want a balanced team on the field."
