So Tedesco chose Lukaku as captain v Austria with KDB injured. Courtois was supposed to be captain v Estonia. Instead, Courtois walked out blaming he hurt his knee, but Tedesco claimed it's not true.

"Together we decided that Romelu would be captain against Austria and Thibaut tomorrow against Estonia. That was OK for everyone but after the match he [Courtois] suddenly wanted to talk to me and said he was going home because he was disappointed and felt offended.

Tedesco has denied that Courtois departed due to an injury, adding: “I wish I could say it’s an injury but I can’t lie. I always try to protect players but that’s impossible in this situation. I tried to tell him to hold on for two more days.”
