Kevin de Bruyne is delighted to be playing at Chelsea alongside Belgium teammates Eden Hazard and Romelu Lukaku.

De Bruyne has shone for Chelsea in preseason after spending last term away on-loan with Werder Bremen.

"We know each other from the youth teams. Nearly everyone is between 20 and 24 years old and hopefully everyone can grow during the coming season, so we stand strong as a team at the World Cup," said De Bruyne.

"This is the best generation of Belgian footballers ever, purely on the basis of talent."
