Kevin De Bruyne is another technically gifted member of a Belgian international side full of potential for this summer's World Cup finals in Brazil and has scored four times in qualification matches for his country. The youngster could represent a strong value player betting tip for individual goalscorer markets, available at longer betting odds than the likes of Romelu Lukaku who will be Belgium's main striker.
De Bruyne began his career with hometown club KVV Drongen in 2003, before enjoying further youth spells at Gent and Genk between 1999-2008 before he was promoted to the latter's first team squad in 2008.
112 Genk appearances followed for De Bruyne until 2012, during which he cemented himself as a regular starter in his second season with the club and made 36 assists for players alongside 17 goals. The youngster was part of the squad that claimed the 2008/09 Belgian Cup, as well as the Belgian Pro League and Supercup crowns in 2010–11.
Chelsea signed the attacking midfielder and winger for a rumoured £7 million, but only nine appearances followed before a season-long loan spell at German Bundesliga side, Werder Bremen. This saw him score 10 times in his 34 appearances, before Wolfsburg signed De Bruyne for around £18 million and he has since scored three times in 18 showings since January 2014.
With 18 starts to his name for the senior International side since 2010 with Belgium, De Bruyne's part in their 2014 World Cup qualifying encounters proved critical in booking their place in the Brazil tournament this summer, scoring four goals in four different games from 10 showings.

The 22-year-old had been overlooked on many occasions for Chelsea under Jose Mourinho, but his place in Belgium's very strong squad should be almost a certainty. De Bruyne's playmaking roles on the pitch will suit him more for assists towards striker Lukaku, but his longer betting odds make him an appealing option for individual goalscoring markets as he could have plenty of opportunities for finding the target during a tournament Belgium could progress surprisingly very far in.
