Red Devils qualify for Football World Cup 2018
The Red Devils have qualified for the Football World Cup 2018 in Russia. The Belgian national football team was assured of a place following a 2-1 victory against Greece in the third-last qualifier.
The Red Devils have already secured a place at the Football World Cup 2018 in Russia, with two qualifiers still to come. The Belgian male national football team defeated Greece 2-1 in an away match, with goals from Jan Vertonghen and Romelu Lukaku. This development makes Belgium the first European country to qualify for the World Cup. The Red Devils have suffered no losses during the preliminaries and drawn just a single match.
This will be Belgium's 13th foray into the Football World Cup. Our national team achieved its best result thus far at the World Cup 1986 in Mexico, securing fourth place. Having missed out on a number of major tournaments, the Red Devils have been on the rise once more over the past few years, with a new generation of players at the top of their game. This has helped them to reach the quarter finals at the most recent European and World Cups. In January 2016, they even briefly topped the FIFA world rankings. Over the coming months, Jan Vertonghen and Romelu Lukaku will have the opportunity to try out for the most international matches and the most goals, respectively.
