Football Career

  • Palaces ended his career at K.R.C. Genk, where he was a teammate of fellow goalkeeper Thibaut Courtois.
  • Initially, he was thought to be a better goalkeeper than Courtois, but because several of the club’s other goalkeepers were injured, Courtois was able to break into the team.
  • He was signed by the VfL Wolfsburg from the TSG 1899 Hoffenheim in January 2015, though it must be said that he spent the first six months of his three-and-a-half-year contract on loan at Werder Bremen.
  • In the 2015 DFL Supercup, he played for Wolfsburg, saving from Xabi Alonso in the penalty shootout to give his team the win after a 1-1 draw.

  • The first time Castels was called up to the Belgian national team was back in 2013.
  • The defender was supposed to be part of Belgium’s 2014 FIFA World Cup squad, but he failed to recover from an injury and was replaced by Silvio Proto and then Sammy Bossut.
  • Since manager Roberto Mart*nez often chooses four goalkeepers for his international teams, and as the 2018 FIFA World Cup only allowed for three stoppers, Casteels had to contend with Matz Sels for the remaining space behind Thibaut Courtois and Simon Mignolet. In the end, he was chosen to be a member of the 23-man squad that will go to Russia.
  • Castles made his full international debut on 8 September 2020, when he played for the United Kingdom against Iceland in a 5-1 win for the UEFA Nations League.
