has an excellent desire to win Euro 2020.
The Belgian national team must face Portugal in the first knockout stage of Euro 2020. They are facing the defending champions while the Red Devil has never won a major trophy.

Alderweireld now claims that the Belgian golden generation has a lot of motivation to win the Euro 2020 .
Asked if Portugal have an advantage given their 2016 success, the defender replied:
"I want to see it differently. Alderweireld replied when "I can't talk about how they feel or how they think, the only thing I can say is that we are very hungry.
"The desire is unbelievable with us to achieve big things for our country and for this team. So we will do everything in our powers to beat them."
"I think they are a very difficult team to beat. They have a lot of quality, the team is very compact, they know how to play big games in big tournaments.
"A lot of experience as well, so I think we have to be top to beat them. Of course everyone talks about Cristiano Ronaldo, we know he is one of the best in the world. But not only him, I think they have a lot of quality around him as well who create chances for him, So again we have to be top to beat them."
