Belgian fans know this: reaching the Final Four of the Nations League now depends on a miracle. On the final day of the group stage, the ‘red devils’ visit the Netherlands this Sunday, where an unbeaten run of 3 goals or more will be enough to qualify for this group $ of League A. But the Belgian team, 3 points behind the Dutchwill give everything and, due to the dismissal of Roberto Martínez, his coach, it will be ex-Barcelonista Thierry Henry who will sit on his bench in Amsterdam against the team led by Louis van Gaal.
The former French striker and current second coach of the Belgium team has to lead the ‘red devils’ against the ‘oranje’, because the Belgian Football Federation has given up on the appeal Roberto Martínez’s red card in the match against Wales.
Roberto Martínez was sent off with a discount, after keeping a ball out on the wing to allow his side, who won 2-1, to regain their position after a Welsh counter-attack. The match ended 2-1.
Balaguer’s coach confirmed after the match that, in his opinion, he deserved a yellow card and not a red for the action and even left open the possibility of an appeal, but this Friday the Belgian Federation announced that it would not appeal.
In any case, it was already planned Roberto Martínez will appear this Saturday in the press conference before the match against the Dutch, who defeated the Belgians 1-4 in Brussels, so they have a place for the Final Four one step away.
The Netherlands, who beat Wales 2-0 on Thursday, top Group 4 of League A, with 13 points. Next, Belgium, with 10; Poland, with 4; and Wales, with 1.
