Belgium in the World Cup Finals, World Cup Reports, World Cup Squad.
World Cup Appearances:
France 1998 was Belgium's 10th appearance in the World Cup Finals.
Best World Cup Performance:
Belgium are the under-rated plodders of World Cup football, yet they reached the
semi-finals in Mexico 1986.
13th June: vs. Holland
(0:0) in Saint-Denis.
20th June: vs. Mexico
(2:2) in Bordeaux.
25th June: vs. South
Korea (1:1) in Paris.
Belgium didn't lose a match in their group, but the South Korean's
71st minute equalizer gave Mexico a chance to get back into their game against Holland;
and the tournament.
Perhaps Belgium should have tried to win against Holland, in their
opening game, instead of stifling it. They did have the consolation of being co-hosts of
Euro 2000 though; along with two years to sharpen up.
Belgium failed to qualify for the Second Round.
