In preparation for Belgium’s 2022 FIFA World Cup group-stage match against Canada on November 23, FIFA has requested that the Belgium national team make a last-minute change to their uniforms. Adidas must remove the word “love” from the Red Devils’ away uniform.

This firm supplies Red Devils away outfits. The word is emblazoned on the back of Qatar’s away jerseys immediately below the collar. FIFA has ordered the RBFF to make the changes. FIFA says they won’t discuss the matter with the RBF.
Belgium won’t need to pack their away jersey for their three group-stage matches. The jersey was designed for one of Belgium’s most popular music festivals, Tomorrowland.

The kit has been available for a few months, so it’s unclear if the Belgian FA will take FIFA’s warning seriously.
FIFA has cautioned national team leaders to prevent ‘OneLove’ armbands. The rally was meant to protest the host nation’s poor record on LGBTQIA+ rights. Players risk a warning or a one-match suspension if they do it.
Belgium fans hope their team can win the FIFA World Cup first time in their country’s history. Belgium’s other Group F games are against Morocco and Croatia.
The Croats are one of their biggest hurdles to the knockout round and group success. They competed in 2018. After losing to France in the final, they finished second. In the meantime, the Belgian Red Devils came in third place after claiming victory over England in the play-off for third place by a 2-0.
After 2022, Belgium’s Manager Will Declare His Future
Roberto Martinez will resign as Belgium’s manager after the 2022 World Cup. He’ll be out of contract. The team of Barcelona, Real Madrid, and the Spanish nationals were informed. The former Wigan Athletic boss told MARCA his future intentions.
“I concentrate on the World Cup like there’s no tomorrow. This is how I’ve always done it, and we’ll continue. The World Cup is my sole concern, “coached. He also said his decision would depend on the Belgian national football team’s performance in the World Cup.
“I’m not alone; I haven’t decided. I’ll decide after the World Cup. “Then we’ll meet with the Federation to discuss the following cycle.”
