Belgium crashed out of the 2022 World Cup in the group stage after three underwhelming performances, culminating in the resignation of Roberto Martinez.
The Red Devils started the tournament with a fortunate 1-0 victory over eventual bottom-of-the-group Canada, but the underdogs dominated, missed a penalty, and didn’t deserve to lose the tie.
Then, Belgium were defeated 2-0 by Morocco, with the African nation’s counter attacking game plan working perfectly. Going into the final game, Belgium needed three points against Croatia to progress to the knockout stages. The game ended 0-0 with Martinez’s men missing many big chances, on another day they could have had a comfortable lead and a place in the next round.
According to many reports, there was a lot of friction in the squad and the morale was at an all-time low. Making it a sour end to an era full of unbelievable talent.
