Roberto Martinez received the full blow in various Belgian media after the Nations League. There were even loud calls for his resignation. The national coach remains sober.

"There has been a lot of criticism, but it is understandable if expectations are not met. But after a few days, common sense makes us realize that this Belgian selection was among the 4 best teams in Europe and is almost qualified for the 2022 World Cup" , said Martinez in the Spanish press.

Belgium will probably qualify for the World Cup in Qatar next month. That World Cup will take place next year, but at the end of the year. Many hardly expect anything from the Belgians, after they fell short in the top games at the European Championship and in the Nations League.
