Kevin de Bruyne thinks England should be leading contender at next year’s UEFA Championships and the 2022 World Cup.
The Man City midfielder will be apart of the Belgium side against England in the Nations League on Sunday.
Both teams reached the World Cup semi-finals in Russia two years ago.
“I think they should be very excited,” he said of England. “It’s a very young team with a lot of potential.”
England are still waiting for their first major senior trophy since the 1966 World Cup but De Bruyne, voted last season’s Premier League Player of the Year, said: “I think they should aim to win the next Euros and World Cup. I think they have that potential.
“There are always a lot of teams who want to win it, but I think the team they have, the players who play in top clubs, they should do that.”
