New Belgium coach Dick Advocaat has appointed Arsenal defender Thomas Vermaelen as the new captain ahead of the World Cup qualifier against Turkey.

Advocaat axed previous skipper Timmy Simons from his squad and Bayern Munich defender Daniel van Buyten was also considered for the captains’s post.

However, Vermaelen eventually got the armband because of his relative young age and the fact that he was Ajax’s skipper before his summer move to the Gunners.
