Belgium Football Kit
The Belgian National Team are
affectionately known as The Red Devils as a result of the distinctive red
jerseys worn by the team. Only during the 1970s, when manager Raymond Goethals
requested an all-white kit in order to help the team identify each other during

runners up in 1980. Belgian football is now emerging from a troubled period
where the national team failed to qualify for a major tournament between 2002
