Wider recent results, however, will definitely give them confidence to exit the Qatar Football World Cup group stage as Croatia is their biggest threat in Group F. In the FIFA World Rankings, Belgium is in second place.
The Belgians topped their qualifying group with eight wins and two draws, including an 8-0 thrashing of Belarus. Romelu Lukaku was his country’s top scorer in qualifying with five goals. Their recent results mean they will enter the tournament as the second-placed team behind leaders Brazil.

At Euro 2020, Belgium were knocked out by eventual winners Italy in the quarter-finals.
