As they unveiled their squad for the upcoming FIFA World Cup in Qatar, Belgium can improve on their third-place at the 2018 World Cup and win their first-ever title in Qatar.

On the 10th of November, 2022 Belgium coach Roberto Martinez made the announcement of the squad heading to Qatar.

Roberto Martinez has included injured striker Romelu Lukaku and playmaker Eden Hazard in his 26-player squad for the World Cup in Qatar.

Lukaku has been suffering from a hamstring injury which, coupled with a thigh earlier this season, means he has played just twice since August and is currently sidelined for his club Inter Milan.

This tournament is seen as something of the last for a golden generation of Belgian footballers that includes Jan Vertonghen, Kevin De Bruyne, Eden Hazard and Romelu Lukaku with many of that generation now seeing out the twilight of their careers in the Belgian League.

But Martinez has previously stated that as long as Lukaku could play in one of the team’ Group F games against Canada, Morocco or Croatia, he would take to the tournament.
