Thibaut Courtois did not have to wait long to showcase his talent at the highest level. The goalkeeper was only 17 when he began proving what he could do in the Belgian championship with Racing Genk, his performances there earning him a move to Atletico Madrid, from where he has since joined Chelsea.
A hard worker and voracious trainer, Courtois has never been one to rest on his laurels. A born competitor, the Diables Rouges custodian is always looking to develop on a technical and mental level. Having become Belgium’s youngest ever keeper when he took to the field for a 2011 meeting with France aged only 19, Courtois is looking to build on a successful first FIFA World Cup™ at Brazil 2014, where his side reached the quarter-finals, and catch the eye again at Russia 2018.
