“In the World Cup you have a tournament within a tournament – the knockout phase and the group phase,” Martinez said.

“Playing a knockout game against Brazil is quite unique. For everyone in Belgium, not just to play Brazil but to beat them is always a game that we are going to remember and treasure.”

Belgium are in Group F of the 2022 FIFA World Cup with Canada, Croatia and Morocco.

The Red Devils have qualified for the FIFA World Cup 14 times (1930, 1934, 1938, 1954, 1970, 1982, 1986, 1990, 1994, 1998, 2002, 2014, 2018 and 2022).

Belgium’s FIFA World Cup best performance was recorded at the Russia 2018 edition where they finished third best following a 2-0 win over England in the Third-Place Match at the Krestovsky Stadium on July 14.
