Belgium National Football Team out of the Football World Cup
Heartbreak for Belgium fans as the Red Devils lost to France in the first Football World Cup semi-final. The Belgium National Football Team had pulled off one of the performances of the tournament by defeating Brazil 2-1 in a pulsating quarter-final. Even though Eden Hazard's side have not reached the Football World Cup Final, they have made their country proud and show that they are a side full of talent. The days of Belgium relying on 'team spirit' to get them through are far behind them. The national side can now call upon the likes of Eden Hazard, Kevin de Bruyne, Romelu Lukaku and Thibaut Courtois to don the Belgian jersey. With all these players still in their 'prime', people still believe that the Belgium National Football Team can still win their first major international football tournament. Their appearance in 2014 saw the Red Devils progress to the quarter-finals where they were eliminated by eventual finalists Argentina. Belgium were once again knocked out in the quarter-finals of Euro 2016 by surprise package Wales, fans will be desperate to see their team progress further and, with the current squad they have, this is a distinct possibility in 2020 or 2022.
Belgium National Football Team Rivalries
Belgium has two main football rivals - France and the Netherlands - due to their close geographical and political connections. The more charged of the two rivalries is undoubtedly the rivalry with Holland, known as the Low Countries derby and, as of November 2016, the two teams have played each other an astonishing 126 times with Holland leading the Belgian's with 55 wins to Belgium's 41. Belgium lead France in head-to-head with 30 wins to les Bleus 24. Who knows, with Belgium continually improving and more and more player moving to play in Europe's major leagues, there may well be more rivalries created in the future.
