Coach:
ROBERTO MARTINEZ
The former Everton and Swansea coach was a very surprising candidate to replace Marc Wilmots in 2016, having coached solely at club level in England, but the Spaniard guided an unbeaten Belgium side to the finals. Russia 2018 will represent Martinez’s first appearance at a FIFA World Cup tournament as a coach.
