The Belgian football team represents just over 11 million inhabitants of the Dutch-speaking Flanders to the north and French-speaking Wallonia to the south.
Tonight they played Italy.
It’s incredible that such a small country can produce a football team as gifted as they do. They are currently No 2 in the world.
Football came to Belgium on 26 October 1863 when an Irish student walked into the Josephites College of Melle with a leather ball.
Initially, association football was an elitist pastime, but during the following decades it supplanted rugby as Belgium’s most popular football sport
Pity they lost to Italy tonight, but bellisimo to the Italians.
