Coming off the back of an impressive Euros qualification where the Red Devils won 10 out of 10 fixtures, scoring 40 goals, and conceding only three, Belgium will be hoping to go one better than they did at the 2018 World Cup and reach this summer’s Euro final.
The Belgium team head into the tournament with debatably the most talented side with the likes of Kevin De Bruyne, Romelu Lukaku and Thibaut Courtois shining throughout the 2020/21 season, but can they finally break the curse and win a major tournament?
Only time will tell…
Who’s in the confirmed line up for Belgium’s 2021 squad?
Roberto Martinez has most certainly gone for a hugely talented attacking Belgium Euros squad with the Belgian manager choosing eight forwards. Both Christian Benteke and Leandro Trossard had strong endings to their season which shows that Martinez is not scared to pick players based on current form. See below for the Belgium Euro squad.

Who do Belgium play next at the Euros?
Belgium kick off their Euros campaign against Russia on Saturday 12th June before they take on a talented Denmark side on Thursday 17th June. Belgium conclude their Euros group stage fixtures against Finland on Monday 21st June.
Belgium’s games against Russia and Finland will be held at the Gazprom Arena in Russia whilst their fixture against Denmark will be at Parken in Copenhagen.
What are the odds that Belgium win the Euros?
As for the Belgium Euro odds, after a very impressive campaign by finishing third in the 2018 World Cup, they of course head into this tournament as one of the outright favourites at 6/1.
The Red Devils are also clear favourites to win their group and you can get them at 4/6 to top Group B with William Hill.
What’s the latest news on the Belgium football team?
Roberto Martinez will be hoping that Kevin De Bruyne’s Champions League final injury will not affect his side too much but the midfield maestro is set to miss the opening game and is out of the Belgium Euro team against Russia, before returning against Denmark.
Eden Hazard’s injury troubles seem to be easing off and this will give the Red Devils a lot of confidence heading into the tournament.
