Belgium and Croatia will meet today in one of the most exciting clashes of the final fixture of the FIFA World Cup group stage. But what if they can’t beat Croatia?
The Belgian national team once again entered the FIFA World Cup as one of the biggest dark horses to win it all. But as is often the case with their golden generation, they failed to fulfill their potential.
Kevin De Bruyne and Thibaut Courtois don’t speak to each other, Eden Hazard and other stars don’t get along either, and they’ve always kept their egos and personal stories from living up to the hype.
That’s why some fear they could underperform again and drop the ball in their must-win game against Croatia. So if that’s the case for you, you might be wondering what could happen if they lose today’s game.
Qatar 2022: What Happens If Belgium Lose To Croatia?
Simply put, a loss to Croatia would send Belgium back home. Croatia and Morocco both have 4 points, while Belgium sits in the third spot with just three units. They could still make it to the next round with a tie, assuming Canada beats Morocco by at least four goals.
Belgium beat Canada 1-0 in the debut and then lost 0-2 to Morocco in the second game of the group stage. So, they cannot afford to sleep on their laurels again and drop another matchup today.
