Belgium won all of their ten qualifying games and 1st in the FIFA World Rankings.


The highest-ranked team in the world, Belgium are arguably the in-form nation entering EURO 2020.

After a perfect qualifying campaign featuring 40 goals -- including nine in one match against San Marino -- manager Roberto Martínez is hoping to finally guide Belgium to glory.

The country's so-called "golden generation" of players have been together for a number of years now, but were defeated in 2016 by Wales at the quarter-final stage and lost to eventual winners France in the 2018 World Cup semi-finals.

With forward players like Eden Hazard, Romelu Lukaku and Michy Batshuayi, Belgium are one of the favourites at this summer's tournament.
