Group:

F

First Match:

November 24, 2022, 3 AM SGT

Stadium:

Ahmad Bin Ali Stadium

Belgium qualified for the World Cup for the third time in a row and the fourteenth time overall by winning 6 of their 8 matches and finishing atop Group E. Their finest performance to date was four years ago when they reached the semifinals before being eliminated by eventual champion France.

 

They finished in third place after beating England in Saint Petersburg. They were eliminated in the quarterfinals the year before, again at the hands of the eventual winners.

 

With many members of their "Golden Generation" now in their mid-to-late thirties, hope abounds that this is finally their time to win a major prize. Eight of Belgium's top 10 all-time most-capped players are still playing for the national team today.

Kevin De Bruyne

Key Player: Kevin De Bruyne (Manchester City)

De Bruyne's performance in the World Cup will be essential in determining how well Belgium advances. He is widely regarded as one of the top midfielders in the game today.

 

Since 2018, the 31-year-old has won four Premier League titles and six domestic cup trophies. He is a regular in the "Team of the Season" at the competitions he participates in and was also selected to the "World Cup Dream Team" in 2014.
