He’s not known for his pinpoint distribution.
Thibaut Courtois has emerged as one of Belgium’s most creative players at the World Cup.
The Chelsea goalkeeper has taken some of the headlines away from the likes of Kevin de Bruyne, proving to be a playmaker in his own right.
Courtois’ quick thinking has been the source of several counter-attacks from Belgium at the tournament.
Against Japan, the 26-year-old stopper started the deadly counter that ended the opposition’s World Cup hopes in stoppage time.
Courtois cleverly rolled the ball into the feet of De Bruyne, when other keepers might have gone long or not seen the opportunity.
Courtois again showed off his creative talents in the quarter-final against Brazil.
The former Atletico Madrid man picked out Romelu Lukaku with an arrow-like throw, sending Belgium from defence to attack in a matter of seconds.
Romelu Lukaku has also turned into a key creative-spark for Belgium.
The Man United man has chipped in with both goals and assists at the tournament and is a player full of confidence.
Belgium’s talented squad are finally living up to their undoubted potential, with every player contributing throughout the team.
It’s rare that De Bruyne is not the standout talent.
