EURO 2020 Live Broadcast Schedule – Belgium's national team will face a difficult challenge in the finals of the Euro 2020 later. Joining Group B with hosts Denmark, Russia and Finland will force Eden Hazard and his friends to play in two different stadiums at the 2020 European Cup finals.
Roberto Martinez's troops qualify for Euro 2020 perfectly. 10 times competing in qualifying, 10 times also Belgium won. That is, they can get 30 points. In addition Belgium gained another classy status, which is the sharpest team in qualifying with a collection of 40 goals.
However, just like other participating countries, new challenges will be presented at the finals of the Euro 2020 later. Belgium is a favorite, but it is expected to meet heavy obstacles, including when Finland meet, the European Cup debutant.
Belgium's inaugural match will be presented when they travel to Russia at the Krestovsky Stadium, Saint Petersburg, the opponent they twice defeated in the last qualifying round. At that time Belgium won 3-1 in the first meeting in Brussels. Youri Tielemans' goal and brace Eden Hazard who brought the Red Devils won at the time.
When it was their turn to travel to Russia, Belgium won a landslide victory 1-4. Eden Hazard scored twice while the rest were shared by Thorgan Hazard and Romelu Lukaku. Interestingly, at that time the match was also held at the Krevtovsky Stadium, where the second meeting was held at Euro 2020 later.
The next challenge for Belgium is when they visit Denmark in Copenhagen, precisely at the Parken Stadium. After that, the match against Finland was again played in Saint Petersburg. That is, physical conditions due to long trips must also be considered by Martinez in the midst of tight schedules.
The pressure for Belgium will be even greater following the success at Euro 2016. At that time they came as one of the dark horses and ended in the quarter-finals because it was stopped by Wales.
In its history, Belgium has only once gained international achievements. That was already the case in 1920 when they won the Olympic gold medal. At that time Belgium benefited from playing at home.
In the European Cup, Belgium's furthest step occurred in 1980 when it became runner-up after losing to Italy in the final. Another best record is when he became third in Euro 1972 and became third in the 2018 World Cup last.
Martinez hopes his flagship players will not be injured until the finals. Because the ranks of pillars like Eden Hazard, Kevin De Bruyne, Romelu Lukaku, or Axel Witsel still have a solid schedule with their respective clubs until the end of the season.
