Thibaut Courtois leaves Belgian national team after captaincy dispute with Romelu Lukaku

The Belgian national team is facing turmoil as Thibaut Courtois, the goalkeeper for Real Madrid, left the team after a dispute with Romelu Lukaku over the captaincy.

Courtois was reportedly upset after being overlooked as captain during the team’s 1-1 draw with Austria, with Lukaku being given the armband instead.

The coach, Domenico Tedesco, had planned for Courtois to be captain for the next match against Estonia, but Courtois abruptly left the camp, citing disappointment and feeling offended.

Tedesco expressed shock and admiration for Courtois, while Courtois released a statement denying that he had demanded anything and expressing disappointment with the coach’s public comments about their private conversation.

The incident has caused controversy and speculation about the team’s future.
