At the 2022 World Cup in Qatar, Belgium’s “golden generation” of players will be led by Roberto Martinez.
Kevin de Bruyne and other young players have helped Belgium become more competitive on the international level. They reached the quarterfinals in 2014, but were defeated by Argentina 1-0. The 2018 World Cup in Russia was their most successful tournament to date. They finished in third place.
Even while this team boasts a fantastic offense, it is not without flaws. Martinez is an excellent leader who understands how to bring out the best in his squad.
Here is the squad of the nation for World Cup 2022.

FIFA World Cup 2022 Belgium Team Preview
The majority of Belgium’s World Cup squad is in terrific form and ready to travel.
Martinez’s team features a number of talented young players.
Thomas Meunier’s prospects of joining the World Cup are dwindling after breaking his cheekbone on October 16 while playing for his club. Despite not being officially eliminated, Borussia Dortmund has stated that he will not play again until after the World Cup.
Martinez often uses Romelu Lukaku in the center of the pitch, but he has sometimes been played on the flank. Michy Batshuayi may be able to perform some of the duties of a leader. Martinez will almost certainly start Kevin de Bruyne up front, where he can cut inside when the wing back overlaps.
Our Prediction about Belgium at FIFA World Cup 2022
Because of their quality players and potent offensive, Belgium will be able to improve on their third-place performance four years ago and maintain their No. 2 FIFA global position.
Martinez must put in a lot of effort to assemble the finest team possible, particularly at the back.
Belgium’s guiding light is Kevin de Bruyne, one of the best players in the world. He is free to express his creativity in whatever way he sees fit. He is capable of both leading an excellent assault and scoring goals.
An injury ended Romelu Lukaku’s season just as he was coming back into fitness for his club team. Martinez understands what can be done to prevent things from going wrong.
In 2017, Thibaut Courtois won the Champions League, but Real Madrid lost. Eden Hazard and Hazard are both members of the Belgian national team. Charles de Ketelaere is another promising AC Milan player to keep an eye on.
Thierry Henry, a former France and Arsenal player, is presently Roberto Martinez’s assistant manager for Belgium.
Group F includes the Red Devils. Only the top two teams from each bracket progress to the next round.
Belgium, the group’s top seed, will face John Herdman’s Canada, Morocco, and Croatia.
Belgium’s performance against Croatia in their most recent game may have demonstrated their readiness for the World Cup.
