Belgium have included Axel Witsel in their squad for Euro 2024 in Germany next month, while Thibaut Courtois has been left out despite his potential involvement in the upcoming Champions League final. Coach Domenico Tedesco revealed the 25-man squad for the tournament, with Witsel's return coming as a major surprise. Tedesco personally convinced the 35-year-old Atletico Madrid defender to rejoin the team, marking Witsel's first call-up since the 2022 World Cup in Qatar. Courtois, who had a public fallout with Tedesco and withdrew from the national team last June, remains absent due to the unresolved rift with the coach and his recent injury.

The squad features uncapped player Maxim De Cuyper from Club Brugge, with 25 players selected instead of the maximum 26 allowed by UEFA. Notably, 37-year-old Jan Vertonghen and top scorer Romelu Lukaku, with 154 and 83 caps respectively, strengthen the team. The squad is completed by a mix of experienced and young talents, including Koen Casteels, Kevin De Bruyne, and Jeremy Doku, among others.
