Belgium: Lost Talents, drop down by 4
The end might have come too soon after being the top team in the world for an era which analytics thougt of as a golden generation.
Definately there is lots of pain, hard time, agony, disbelief and agonisingly difficult soul-searching questions for everyone at the Belgian FA to answer after a system and team totally brought home failure.
They had all they can call the best team Martinez could get. Anyone could field no better team than that. Belgians gave their all against a would be solid Italy. Pitched Eden Hazard who at Real Madrid enjoyed best part of his stay at bench and a fully fit Kevin De Bruyne, only but success was the less that was expected on that frantic night in Munich. Defenders Thomas Vermaelen, Jan Vertonghen and Toby Alderweireld – will quite soon bid farewell without major continental Silverware.
Yet again they need to be renewed with the World Cup just 18 months away.
All is not lost. Legends come and go. Others are reborn. Nice scintillation, outtight performance and upcoming youngsters likes of the 19-year-old Jérémy Doku mean alot to Belgium fans and future tournaments but for now lets welcome a drop in FIFA rankings then regroup, seal our mistakes and focus for the future.
