Even if he could not join the Belgian Espoirs during this international break due to a muscular general, the young defensive midfielder trained at the Academy, passed on the grill of the quiz “100% Belgium”. He makes you discover a little of his country and its culture.
Eliot Matazo is better than the Guide du Routard! Author of a big start to the season in Club, with nine matches played in all competitions, the Monegasque number 36 was unfortunately unable to join the Belgian Hopes, who are contesting the qualifiers for Euro U23, due to an embarrassment muscle in the right thigh.
The opportunity all the same for the recovering midfielder of the Red and White, who made the start of his training in Anderlecht, to evoke so much his country which he loves. The proof with this 100% Belgian interview, in which he praises the assets of the “flat country”. Follow the guide !
People are very warm and welcoming in Belgium. I don’t think you can find that anywhere else.

The first one chose what you do when you return to Belgium?
The first one I choose what I do when I return to Belgium is to go home, see my friends, my family and eat fries (laughs). I live in Brussels, in Woluwe-Saint-Lambert. This is even where I was born.
Your favorite Belgian dish?
French fries ! This is the basis. There is really a very big difference between Belgian fries and the others, I tell all the French people that I meet. Frankly, it has nothing to do with it. I’m not so I couldn’t explain it precisely, but I feel like Belgian fries are crispier. There is one more thing, I really advise you to taste them.
Your favorite Belgian singer?
There are quite a few. I have a good friend of mine who raps, there is Frenetik who is not bad, Gotti Maras, a good friend of mine called Black Mozart. There are really quite a few good artists.
What is there in Belgium and nowhere else?
The joy of living. People are very warm and welcoming in Belgium. I don’t think you can find that anywhere else.
Your favorite Belgian footballer?
There too there are a lot of them, because there are a lot of players I identify with. The best of the best, the one who has world class at the moment, is Romelu Lukaku. But I identify more with Axel Witsel or Yuri Tielemans because they evolve at my post.

Your favorite Belgian expression?
Usually when I’m on the pitch I tend to drop a few little words in Dutch depending on the situation. And often, after the game my teammates come back to me and ask me: “But what did you say there? “. I often let go of little expressions like “Komop! “, Which means” Go! “.
