Matz Sells gets his chance in goal against Burkina Faso on Tuesday. It’s not the 30-year-old’s first appearance: Cels was allowed to attend a symbolic minute from national coach Roberto Martinez in June during an international friendly against Greece. The goalkeeper of French club Strasbourg could play a full match with the Red Devils for the first time on Tuesday.
Simon Mignolet came home after the match against Ireland to be with his wife and newborn son, Thibaut Courtois was not called up as he had more than 50 caps and Quinn Castells was absent with a thigh injury. So it is up to the fourth goalkeeper in play. National team coach Roberto Martinez confirmed in his press conference that Sales is preferred over Thomas Kaminsky (Blackburn Rovers) and Davey Rove (Ka-A-Gent).
In addition to Mignolet, Dedric Boyata missed training on Monday night. The 31-year-old Hertha Berlin defender has trained indoors and does not look qualified to play against Burkina Faso.
Thomas Meunier was an amazing spectator in training. Meunier is in the country and came to say hello to coach Martinez and his teammates. The Borussia Dortmund right-back will not be called up anyway due to his 54 caps. He is also injured.
