The nation have gone from quiet Europeans to top flight conquerors.
Come on admit it, none of you would have chosen Belgium as a top European side 10 years ago. In fact perhaps not even five years ago.
Yet an influx of talented Belgians into the Premier League has made the rest of the continent sit up and realise the country is no longer prepared to just be a bridge between France and Germany.
In the 2012/13 season, Flemish stars spearheaded no less than six top flight English sides including Chelsea, Everton and Tottenham.
Three sides had players from the nation as their top-scorer in the league, with Christian Benteke, Marouane Fellaini and Romelu Lukaku netting 39 Premier League goals between them.
As well as that trio, new Blues signing Eden Hazard marked his arrival in England with nine goals and 11 assists in the top tier, whilst Jan Vertonghen was arguably the second best player in the Spurs side to one Gareth Bale; with Moussa Dembele also showing his flair at White Hart Lane.
Then of course Manchester City are skippered by defensive rock and ever reliable Vincent Kompany, who’s performances since a £7.5m transfer in 2008 has seen the 27-year-old regarded as one of the best centre-backs in world football.
Similarly, a disappointing season for Sunderland was aided greatly by some superb performances from Belgian goalkeeper Simon Mignolet – who kept 11 clean-sheets despite a torrid campaign for the Black Cats.
Another worthy mention is Kevin Mirallas, who at £6.7m was one of the bargains of the year after scoring six goals and providing a further six assists during the 25-year-old’s debut season at Goodison Park.
Arsenal were perhaps the only side that did not benefit hugely from their aces from Belgium, with club captain Thomas Vermaelen having an uncharacteristically average season and losing his starting XI place.
However, the centre-back is still considered a top defender and if he were to leave the Gunners this summer there is already a queue of potential suitors with superb top flight credentials.
Add to the mix the successes of on-loan Chelsea youngsters Kevin De Bruyne at Werder Bremen and Thibaut Courtois at Atletico Madrid and there is nearly enough Belgian superstars in the Premier League to field a full team.
A 2-1 win for the nation over Serbia in the 2014 World Cup qualifiers puts Belgium top of Group A with six wins and one draw in seven matches.
Long gone are the times of the country being European whipping boys, don’t be surprised if they go on and have a good tournament in Brazil next year.
