The Belgian national football team (Dutch: Belgisch voetbalelftal;[C] French: Équipe belge de football; German: Belgische Fußballnationalmannschaft) has represented Belgium in association football since 1904. It is controlled by the Royal Belgian Football Association, the governing body for football in Belgium and a founding member of the international federations FIFA (in 1904) and UEFA (in 1954). The majority of Belgium's home matches are held at the King Baudouin Stadium in Brussels and Marc Wilmots is their national manager. The player group is nicknamed the Red Devils (Dutch: de Rode Duivels; French: les Diables Rouges; German: die Roten Teufel).
Belgium's highlight achievements in international tournaments so far include qualification for six successive FIFA World Cups between 1982 and 2002 including a fourth place finish in 1986, the title of European runners-up in 1980 and the 1920 Olympic Football Gold Medal on home ground. Other noteworthy performances are their four victories over reigning world champions: 2–0 against West Germany in 1954, 5–1 against Brazil in 1963, 1–0 against Argentina in 1982 and 2–1 against France in 2002.
The Belgian fans are joined in a national supporters' federation named 1895. Belgium hold a longlasting football rivalry with the Netherlands, having played biannually between 1905 and 1964 (excluding the war periods), and less frequent since. Jan Ceulemans holds the record for Belgium appearances, having played 96 times between 1977 and 1991. Bernard Voorhoof and Paul Van Himst share the goalscoring record, with a tally of 30 conversions each.
