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 kicked off their Euros campaign against Russia with a 3-0 win, before defeating Denmark and Finland 2-1 and 2-0 respectively to top Group B. They then saw off reigning champions Portugal 1-0 in the last 16 to set up a mammoth last eight clash against Italy on Friday.
What are the odds that Belgium win the Euros?
As for the Belgium Euro odds, after a very impressive campaign that saw them finish third in the 2018 World Cup, they of course headed into this tournament as one of the outright favourites and remain so at 13/2. After an impressive start to the competition, Romelu Lukaku is the 4/1 second favourite to win the Golden Boot.
What’s the latest news on the Belgium football team?
While Belgium did brilliantly to advance past Portugal, it did come at a price. Two of their standout players, Kevin De Bruyne and Eden Hazard, both picked up injuries. De Bruyne suffered an ankle knock with Hazard sustaining a muscle injury. It remains to be seen how long they’ll both be out for.
