Sunderland goalkeeper Simon Mignolet is determined to be Belgium's new No1.

Mignolet is having to play second fiddle to Chelsea's Thibaut Courtois, currently on-loan with Atletico Madrid.

"At this moment the coach chooses Thibaut. But I want every practice and every game to show that I want to return. I accept the choice of the coach, but I will certainly not lay down.

"Currently he's playing Thibaut, but that might change quickly," said Mignolet.
