Belgium have one of the most talented if not the most talented squads in world football, but that’s been the case for a while now and they’ve failed to convince in the last two tournaments (getting shelled out by Wales in Euro 16). Be an absolute travesty if this group of players doesn’t win something but thus far they’re missing something.
Putting Roberto Martinez in charge is hardly the solution as he is an infamous flim-flam man, but I actually think might work out in a tournament (up to a point). He’s a very amicable, positive personality who won’t try to lay down the law or fall out with anyone, and this concilatory approach could be effective as the leaders on the pitch (Kompany if fit, Hazard etc) will run the team anyhow.
It’s just when they hit that inevitable tight game that always needs to be negotiated if you want to win, then that’s were a proper coach can be a difference maker, and up to now they’ve always fallen short.
I’ll be pulling for them in any case - some beautiful footballers to watch, plus Feli causing chaos is a fine sight to behold.
