Wales vs Belgium – UEFA Nations League
Having been promoted to League A after an unbeaten and table-topping campaign in the 2020/21 edition of the UEFA Nations League, Wales embark on a tough adventure in the top tier starting with a trip to Poland before returning home to play in front of their own fans.
Rob Page’s men play Netherlands at the Cardiff City Stadium on June 8th, before hosting the highest ranked nation in the world, Belgium, in the capital three days later.
The latter is definitely a game to watch out for, with Wales proving to be Belgium’s bogey team in the past. A very even overall record exists between the two sides, although the Red Dragons have seen the better of it in recent history.
With two wins in their past four encounters – Belgium having only won once in that time – Wales boast victories in EURO 2016 qualifying as well as that famous 3-1 beating of the Red Devils in the quarter-final of the competition proper – it’s always one to watch!
The fixtures come during a hectic June, in which Wales will also play their World Cup Play-Off final, deciding whether they’ll be travelling to Qatar at the end of the year or not.
While the Red Dragons’ priorities during this congested period of fixtures will be clear, Nations League success must not be dismissed with the competition’s links to improved chance of receiving a route to World Cup and European Championship qualification next time out.
