Barcelona's Thomas Vermaelen: Starts four Belgium matches during Euro 2016

Vermaelen made four starts for Belgium during Euro 2016, registering three clean sheets, six tackles and receiving two yellow cards on eight fouls. He takes his international record to 57 caps and one goal. Belgium suffered a shocking 3-1 upset defeat at the hands of Wales and were knocked out of the tournament in the quarterfinals.


Vermaelen failed to make any impression at Barca last season and struggled finding regular playing time. The 30-year-old defender didn't boast high fantasy upside off the bench finishing the season with one goal, six clean sheets and seven tackles in 10 La Liga appearances (six starts).
