Belgium 3rd at World Cup 2018

  Even though there was some political controversial about the 2018 World Cup being held in Russia, when asked, the majority of Belgians agreed that Russia would be a successful venue host for the games. After Belgium was defeated by France at the semi-finals with 1:0, France went on to win the tournament and become World Champions. The semi-final was only attended by a tiny fraction less than the match versus England for third place on July 14th at Saint Petersburg Stadium with 64,406 attendees.
