The Belgian national team was one of the biggest disappointments of the World Cup in Qatar. This is because they were already knocked out in the group stage, where they faced Croatia, Canada and Morocco. The result of such a course of events was the end of cooperation between the bosses of the Red Devils and coach Roberto Martinez, who had managed it since 2016 and managed to lead to third place in the 2018 World Cup in Russia and to the quarter-finals of the European Championship three years later. Today, one of his greatest aces left the national team.
