Belgium World Cup Squad 2018

Roberto Martinez, the Belgian coach has named the provisional 23-man World Cup squad for the upcoming World Cup. The star-studded Belgium World Cup squad includes the likes of Eden Hazard, Kevin De Bruyne etc.

FIFA World Cup commences on 14th June, 2018 and the World Cup final 2018 will take place on 15th July. Some of the players who failed to perform to their potential are also included in the 28-man world cup squad list. But the most talked about topic at this point is the omission of the sensational Radja Nainggolan. Radja Nainggolan, a midfielder plays for AS Roma in the Serie A Italian League and was one of the top performers at the club last year; but still failed to find a place in the Belgian World Cup team. Divock Origi is also going to miss the flight to Russia due to injury.

Roberto Martinez, while addressing a press conference said: "First and foremost, we all know Radja is a top player, there is no question about that. It is a tactical reason. In the last two years, the team has worked in an offensive way, in a very specific manner.”

He further added: "In the case of Radja, we all know he has a very important role at club level and I don't think we can give him that in the national team. I travelled to see him yesterday in Rome and we had a very good conversation. The decision is not an easy one, I understand how popular the player is, but we have to create the team to try to become a winning team. It is purely a tactical decision."

Before the World Cup starts, the 2018 World Cup team of Belgium will play 3 international friendlies as follows –

  1. Belgium Vs. Portugal (2nd June)
  2. Belgium Vs. Egypt (6th June)
  3. Belgium Vs. Costa Rica (11th June)
