News Analysis: Dortmund’s Meunier receives excellent opportunity to play himself into form

Thomas Meunier. When Belgium’s Timothy Castagne succumbed to injury early in his country’s Euro opener against Russia on Saturday evening, Dortmund’s Thomas Meunier took over on the right to pair axially with teammate Thorgan Hazard. 

It was not long before the two Schwarzgelben teammates engineered a goal. Meunier was able to bang home the rebound of a Hazard shot on the BVB co-production. 

Unfortunate news that Castagne will be sidelined for the duration of the continental championship may constitute a big opportunity for the Bundesliga wingback.
