FIFA Rating – 1

Belgium is one of the favourites to take not only Group I in Euro 2020 qualification but in total the whole Tournament in 2020. Belgium took second place in UEFA Nations League last year, giving the lead to Switzerland, after losing 2:5 against them. In general, they look very confidently in the past years taking 3rd place in the World Cup in Russia, and now still going without any problems to the Euro2020 main draw. They saved 4 out of 5 clean sheets conceding only against Russia in the First Round.

In general, the team looks very confidently under the guidance of an excellent coach Roberto Martinez. At this stage of development, they look very well with even bigger prospectives. At the moment, they stay at first place in the FIFA ranking and do not intend to give it to anyone in the near future.
