Foxes midfielder Youri Tielemans toasts Belgium's safe passage to the quarter-finals stage on Sunday night.

Before then, however, Belgium will be in last-eight action against Italy at Allianz Arena in Munich on Friday (8pm kick-off). The Red Devils overcame tournament holders Portugal in the last round, with Tielemans playing the full 90 minutes in Seville. Praet was unused from the bench.

If victorious, Denmark will face one of Ukraine or England in the semi-finals, while Belgium's path would pair them with one of Switzerland or Spain. Both last-four ties will be competed at Wembley Stadium, also the host venue for the EURO 2020 Final.
