Belgium keeper shelled in practice
by Mike Woitalla, June 29th, 2014 11:52PM



[VIDEO PICK: USA-Belgium] Thibaut Courtois, the Belgian goalkeeper the USA faces on Tuesday, will hope to have a better day than when teammates teed off against him at training.

Considered one of the world's top goalies, Courtois is coming of a La Liga title and Champions League runner-up season with Atletico Madrid, where he plays on loans from Chelsea.

Eden Hazard, Adnan Januzaj and Toby Alderweireld made life difficult for him in this shooting session.

    T. Courtois. He's probably the best keeper of the tournament. He's a rock for Atletico Madrid. Good for him, winning La Liga. Too bad that he belongs to FC Chelsea. Chelsea doesn't deserve him. So young and yet so good. With his understudy Liverpool FC teammate. What an amazing crop of GKs Belgium now has. From such a tiny country.
