With the 2020 UEFA European Championships finally set to take place, there will be many Belgium fans that will be looking forward to their team’s chances of lifting the title this summer.
The Red Devils are currently ranked as the world’s best team by the latest set of FIFA rankings, which will only boost the confidence that the camp and the country’s fans will have when they go on their competition journey.
Indeed, they enjoyed a 100% qualifying campaign that could not go any better as they managed to win 10 of the 10 games played, including beating the likes of Russia and Scotland in their group.
They will start their tournament in Group B and will play against Russia once again, although they will also be playing matches against the Scandanavian duo, Denmark and Finland, as well.
However, when you take a look at the squad that Roberto Martinez has available to him for the summer’s tournament, many who use a big free bet will be expecting the nation to reach the semi-finals, if not the final, at the very least.
Of course, they finished third in the 2018 FIFA World Cup after beating England in the third-place game, and with the number of stars that they have on offer, it will not come as a surprise if they were to go all the way in Europe’s biggest international football tournament.
Martinez and Belgium’s chances will have been boosted by the inclusion of Manchester City star Kevin De Bruyne after he appeared doubtful after suffering an orbital fracture and an acute fracture of the nose in the Champions League final defeat to Chelsea.
Indeed, there are a number of other talented players throughout the whole squad, though, with the midfield stacked with talent, as is the attacking department.
With the vast majority of playing their football in the top European leagues, it is hardly a surprise that the Red Devils are ranked as the number one team in the FIFA World Rankings.
