Nazionale di calcio del Belgio

La Nazionale di calcio belga ("équipe de Belgique de football" in francese, "Belgisch voetbalelftal" in olandese e "belgische Fußballnationalmannschaft" in tedesco), i cui giocatori sono conosciuti con il soprannome di "Diavoli Rossi " per via del colore delle maglie, è la rappresentativa calcistica del Belgio ed è posta sotto l'egida della Federazione calcistica belga (URBSFA/KBVB).
Disputa le partite casalinghe nello Stadio Re Baldovino di Brussel ("Koning Boudewijnstadion" in olandese, "Stade Roi Baudouin" in francese), ristrutturato nel 1995 in vista degli Europei 2000.
Attualmente occupa la 1ª posizione nel Ranking mondiale FIFA, davanti alla Germania campione del mondo in carica.
La Nazionale belga nacque nel 1904, quando disputò la prima partita contro la Francia il 1º maggio.
La prima competizione internazionale affrontata sono le Olimpiadi di Anversa, in casa: il Belgio vince la medaglia d'oro nel torneo calcistico. Tale torneo è il primo dei tre "campionati mondiali di calcio dilettantistici" riconosciuti dalla FIFA (gli altri due sono i successivi del 1924 e del 1928, vinti entrambi dall'Uruguay); a differenza della federazione uruguaiana, che considera i suoi titoli vinti come "mondiali" a tutti gli effetti, fregiandosi quindi di 4 stelle invece di 2, la federcalcio belga non si considera campione del mondo e, pertanto, non sfoggia alcun simbolo sulla maglia. Dopo tale trionfo il Belgio non si ripete nelle due edizioni successive dei Giochi, venendo subito eliminato. (fonte: Wikipedia)
