Vermaelen made five interceptions and pitched in on a clean sheet in Wednesday's 1-0 win over Sweden.

Belgium took the play to Sweden for most of the game, limiting the amount of work Vermaelen and the rest of the back line had to do defensively. He has been a key member of a very strong unit that hasn't been scored upon since the first game of the tournament and will face one of the weaker sides remaining in the tournament in Sunday's match versus Hungary.

Vermaelen won four tackles, made five interceptions and helped keep a clean sheet during Saturday's 3-0 win over Ireland.

Vermaelen was a forgotten man after seeing little playing time at the club level over the last couple of seasons, but he caught the eye with a dominant defensive showing to help his side bounce back from a poor opening match. He is entrenched as a starter in the center of defense for the Red Devils and will look to maintain his current form in Wednesday's match versus Sweden.
