Famous Belgians

                                                       Marouane Fellaini or Macy Gray?

 I am about to watch  the Scotland v Belgium football international with a fair degree of trepidation.
Gone are the days you could struggle to name 5 famous Belgians ( a famously patronising British game - apologies to our chums across the channel)
Eddie Merckx
Jean Claude Van Damme
Tin Tin (fictional - does not count)
Hercule Poirot (likewise)
Le Mannequin Pis (statue)
And of course Plastic Bertrand!

Now it's really easy Felliani, Kompany, Hazard, Benteke, Lukaku - to name but 5
They are a team on the up and up and I fear the worst - I'm sure you'll get your revenge for the parlour game above although we did ok against England and beat Croatia away.

On the subject of Plastic Bertrand , Pascal Dutrembles a French friend of my friend Donno had the keyboard player from Plastic Bertrand's band playing the music at his wedding last year.
Friend of the stars!
