Belgium’s golden generation got off to a poor start at Euro 2016 last night as they lost 2-0 to Italy.
The Belgians were extremely open in midfield, leaving many Spurs fans wondering why our own Mousa Dembele was twiddling his thumbs on the bench, while Manchester United misfit Marouane Fellaini was plodding around on the pitch.
Dembele has just had his best ever season at club level and surely must be given an opportunity for his country, who now face a battle to finish second in their group. Here’s how tottenham supporters reacted on Twitter.
Not sure what's inexplicably worse breaking up the Alderweireld & Vertonghen CB pairing or starting Fellani over Dembele, absolute calamity.

Wilmots starting Fellaini over Dembele is a sackable offence in my opinion. Needs to be replaced for Belgium

You'd expect the Belgian manager to have learnt from our last 4 games. You just don't win without Dembele….

Dembélé is literally better than all 3 of Belgiums midfield trio of Fellaini, Witsel and Nainggolan. How he doesn't start is baffling. #BEL

If you're picking Felaini ahead of Dembele you deserve all you get #Belgium
