One of the finest teams in the world, Belgium has a strong chance of winning the forthcoming World Cup in 2022.
Belgium’s 2022 FIFA World Cup qualification team has been named by head coach Roberto Martinez. Six players from the 24-man Euro 2020 team are injured, as Roberto Martinez already stated (Nacer Chadli, Kevin De Bruyne, Jeremy Doku, and Dries Mertens).
Because of quarantine laws in Japan, Thomas Vermaelen is unable to participate, although Simon Mignolet, the primary backup goalkeeper, is permitted time off.
This time, Belgium has a chance to win the FIFA World Cup 2022; if they maintain their current level of play throughout the competition, they will undoubtedly have a great opportunity to establish themselves and make history.
The first team for Belgium’s 2022 FIFA World Cup has been revealed, but there will undoubtedly be few changes from the present group. Belgium has secured a spot at the World Cup in Qatar as they have qualified for the 2022 FIFA World Cup.

Player to watch
Eden Hazard, the captain of the Belgian national team, is a winger or attacking midfielder for the Spanish club Real Madrid. One of the best players of his time, Hazard is renowned for his inventiveness, dribbling, passing, and vision.
In his first season, he won the UEFA Europa League, and in his second, the PFA Young Player of the Year. Hazard won the FWA Footballer of the Year and PFA Players’ Player of the Year honors in 2014–15 after helping Chelsea win the League Cup and Premier League. When Chelsea won the 2016–17 Premier League, he won his second English league championship two years later. He won the FA Cup in 2018 and was included in the FIFA FIFPro World XI. In June 2019, he and Chelsea won the Europa League once more. Hazard made a name for himself at Chelsea as one of the top players in the world.
Since then, he has played in over 120 matches, and he was a part of the Belgian team that advanced to the quarterfinals of the UEFA Euro 2016, UEFA Euro 2014, and UEFA Euro 2020. He led Belgium to their best-ever third-place result at the 2018 FIFA World Cup, earning him the Silver Ball as the second-best player of the competition. He has served as the team’s captain since 2015, which also happened to be the year that Belgium achieved its longest-ever streak at the top of the FIFA men’s rankings.
When Belgium competed in FIFA World Cup Qualifying, Hazard was chosen. He assisted once in a 5-2 victory over Estonia and scored in a 3-0 triumph over the Czech Republic.
