Belgium were widely regarded as the ‘dark horse’ in this summer’s World Cup and, on paper, they had the quality in their squad to compete with the very best sides in world football.

Youthful Belgium

As shown in their quarterfinal exit at the hands of Argentina, the red devil’s inexperience on the world stage proved costly, as talisman Eden Hazard concedes.

"We all had a big game against the USA, which left us tired. We are still lacking something to reach the last four and that’s called experience.

"I think we’ll have that in a few years’ time. We have to keep playing like that."

Hazard was one of many Belgians that did not meet their country’s expectations in Brazil this year, and Chelsea’s new no. 10 has admitted his performances were not up to scratch.

‘I think I could have done better. In terms of quality, I could have been better.’ The 23-year-old said.

"We were given a good lesson; it’s up to us to learn from it. I felt that we could have done so much better, but we should hold our heads high."

What next?

The Future looks bright for Belgian football, as Hazard has predicted, and despite the disappointment of this campaign, Belgium still progressed further than they have done since 1986, where they finished the tournament in fourth.

Belgium’s youth revolution, brought about by initiatives from former technical director, Michael Sablon, has introduced Belgium as a serious threat to the powerhouses of world football, a threat that was expected to be announced in Brazil, but, as it turns out, a expectation that could not be fulfilled.
