Belgium sack Marc Wilmots


Belgium sacked national team coach Marc Wilmots on Friday after their highly fancied team of talents failed to advance beyond the quarter-finals at Euro 2016.

The former Schalke midfielder took the Red Devils to the top of FIFA’s world ranking chart with a team built around Eden Hazard, Vincent Kompany and Kevin De Bruyne, but failed to deliver in France.

Belgium will be seeking out a new manager to take charge prior to the friendly against Spain on September 1.
