Belgium ended its qualifications for the 2022 World Cup with a 1-1 share in Wales on Tuesday in Cardiff in the 8th and final day of Group E. Kevin De Bruyne opened the scoring (12th), Kieffer moore equalized (32nd). Already assured of qualification, the Red Devils end this campaign undefeated.
For the third qualifying campaign of the Martinez era, after those of the 2018 World Cup and Euro 2020, the Red Devils finished undefeated. They end this exercise with 20 points (six wins and two splits), five more than the Welsh. The Czech Republic, victorious 2-0 over Estonia, is third with 14 points and will play in the play-offs thanks to its results in the Nations League. Estonia follows with 4 units, Belarus brings up the rear with 3.
The Red Devils will meet again in March 2022 for a gathering where Roberto Martinez will only call players with less than 50 ‘caps’. Two friendly meetings should enhance this internship.
A few weeks later, on April 1, they will meet their opponents in the group stage of the World Cup, which will compete for the first time in winter, from November 21 to December 18.
