Belgium at the FIFA World Cup

The Belgium national football team has appeared 14 times in the FIFA World Cup finals, with a fourth-place finish in the 1986 edition and third place in the 2018 edition. The Belgium national team are yet to reach a World Cup final, with their best campaign taking them to the semi-finals, in which they lost on both occasions. 

In the 2006 and 2010 FIFA World Cups Belgium did not manage to qualify for the group stages which was a great disappointment, especially considering the talent at their disposal. 

The Belgium national football team will surely look at the Qatar World Cup as a place to make their mark and push themselves to a first final and maybe even take home the cup.

Belgium’s successes and failures at the previous FIFA World Cup

The best FIFA World Cup campaign for the Belgium national football team will surely be the performance in Russia at the 2018 FIFA World Cup. The qualification for the World Cup was phenomenal, scoring an impressive 43 goals and conceding just six in the process. 

Leading up to the group stage, the Belgium national team ranked the highest in the world for the very first time, giving more reason for the team to believe they have what it takes to go all the way. In the Group stages, the Belgian squad faced England, Panama and Tunisia. Belgium won all three games topping the group in some style. 

Moving to the knockout stage, the Belgium national team came up against Japan who went 2-0 shocking the Belgian squad. The Belgium national football team turned it around in the dying minutes, winning the game 3-2 on the night and progressing to the next stage against Brazil. Belgium took control of the tie, scoring twice in the first half, booking their spot in the semi-finals. 

The semi-final was decided by a single goal, as Belgium fell to a defeat at the hands of the eventual winners, France. It was a call off as close as you can get to a final for Belgium. 

Two of the worst appearances for the Belgium national football team were the 2010 and 2014 campaigns, when they failed to make it to the group stages. The 1998 edition of the FIFA World Cup was a poor showing as the Belgium squad drew all three games, seeing them being eliminated in the group stage.

Belgium squad for the World Cup in Qatar

The Belgium national football team enjoys an incredible team full of potential. Talent won’t be an issue for coach Roberto Martinez who will be spoilt for choice in every position on the pitch. 

Starting off from the goalkeeper, Thibaut Courtois has been in brilliant form with Real Madrid, getting the man of the match in the Champions League Final after frustrating Liverpool with astonishing saves. 

In the middle of the field, Kevin de Bruyne will surely be in the thick of it leading his team together with Youri Tielemans and Dendoncker, who will offer protection to the backline. 

Going forward, the Belgium national football team players are a force to be reckoned with, with Romelu Lukaku, Eden Hazard, Thorgan Hazard and Dries Mertens all great options to find the net when needed.
