Belgium odds: To win 2022 World Cup, how far will they go, top scorer and more

Belgium will be looking to make the most of their golden generation and win the World Cup for the first time.

Belgium have reached the quarter-finals in each of the last two World Cups, finishing third in Russia after beating England 2-0 in the third place play-off. Previous to that, the Red Devils had only made it past the quarter-finals on one occasion when they finished fourth in 1986.

They will be looking to go one step further in Qatar with talisman Kevin De Bruyne and always prolific for his country, Romelu Lukaku looking to lead the Belgians to glory. 

This will be the last chance for some of Belgium’s ageing stars with a lot of their current squad all being over the age of 30.
