Will Belgium do it this time?
Although Belgium has appeared in 12 World Cups, they could not go further than the semi-finals, which they did in in 1986 Mexico. That year, they finished the cup at the fourth place.

Having beaten Brazil, Belgium increased their confidence as they go to the last two matches.
