Belgium’s on fire. Last night, the Belgian national football team a.k.a. the Red Devils, defeated Hungary and scored three late goals to secure a 4-0 win. Thanks to a superb performance by Eden Hazard they reach the Euro 2016 quarterfinals of the Euro 2016 competition.

Mr. Bowie is totally ready to meet Wales with his star striker Gareth Bale in the quarterfinals.

Belgium beats Russia. With one lightning-quick counterattack in the 88th minute from teenage striker Divock Origi and Eden Hazard, Belgium grabbed a 1-0 victory over Russia at Estádio do Maracanã on Sunday and a place in the World Cup’s Round of 16.

World Cup 2014. Belgium is known for a lot of things like chocolate, waffles and of course Mr. Bowie, but not traditionally a strong national football team. At this summer’s World Cup in Brazil, however, the Belgians are likely to be an underdog that will surprise and shock with their progress. As any Premier League fan will already know, the secret to Belgium’s recent success is an overwhelming array of talent across the pitch. Belgium currently have an ideal blend of youth and experience in their squad, and manager Marc Wilmots provides stability.
Traditionally the squad of Belgium plays at home entirely in colours of the Belgian tricolore, with predominantly red. This explains the very commonly used nickname Red Devils.

Mr. Bowie is totally ready for the start of the 2014 World Cup.
