Roberto Martinez has named his 26-man Belgium World Cup squad for this winter's tournament in Qatar.

This tournament is seen as something of a last dance for a golden generation of Belgian footballers that includes Jan Vertonghen, Kevin De Bruyne, Eden Hazard and Romelu Lukaku with many of that generation now seeing out the twilight of their careers in the Belgian Pro League.

The Red Devils made it to the semi-finals of the World Cup in Russia four years ago where they would lose to eventual winners France before beating England in the third-place play-off match.

RealSport101's Harry Smith is on hand to run you through all 26 members of the Belgium World Cup squad for the 2022 Qatar World Cup.
