The main goalkeeper of the Belgian national team, Thibaut Courtois, refused to participate in the final part of the 2024 European Championship in Germany. The goalkeeper of the Red Devils, who will be Ukraine's rivals if it enters the tournament, does not intend to force his recovery from an ACL injury.

This was reported by the Spanish radio station Radio Marca. Courtois has already informed the management of Real Madrid about his decision. The 31-year-old Belgian focused on making a full recovery and getting fit for the new club season.
