The Red Devils secured the 3rd place.
The golden generation of Belgium lost just one match, that too 0-1 against France, in their entire 2018 World Cup campaign.
This is Belgium’s best performance in a World Cup. The previous best was 4th place in 1986.
They have won 25 of their last 26 matches.
They have 10 different goal scorers in this World Cup which is equivalent to the current World Cup record.
21 out of the 23 players in their squad played in at least one of the World Cup matches. The 2 players who missed out were the reserve goal keepers.
The dressing room photo says it all. Their passion and dedication to win this tournament was their dream.
They played as a team with One Dream to win this World Cup. Great commitment from each and every player. All players contributed in their own ways. They will be remembered for one of the best come backs in World Cup history. The match against Japan which they were trailing 0-2. That game showed their prowess to attack and score goals. Then came the match against Brazil which saw some breath taking saves from Courtois. They almost scored against France but luck was not on their part. But the game against England for the third place was their chance to finish off on a high and they indeed managed to do that.
elgium players should be proud of their performance. It would have been great if they could have won this World Cup. But it was not meant to be their World Cup.
The wait continues …!!!
Belgium : One of the best teams of World Cup 2018 signed off in style.
Hope to see these players performing at their best in the coming years.
