Belgium’s “golden generation” might be flaming out of the 2022 FIFA World Cup before anyone expected. Well, anyone not named Kevin De Bruyne.

Morocco upset Belgium 2-0 in Group F play on Sunday at Al Thumama Stadium to take the Group F lead with four points.

Belgium sits in second with three points with a match against 2018 World Cup runner-up Croatia to close out the group stage.

Morocco thought it had scored at the end of the first half, but VAR ruled them offside. The African side responded with the same type of energy and dominance in the second half to find two deserved goals.

After calling Belgium’s game against Canada one of the worst technical performances the Red Devils have had since he became manager, Roberto Martinez didn’t seem all that surprised by the result.

“That’s what happens in the World Cup,” Martinez said on the field postgame.

Belgium has had an incredible pool of players since 2014, but their best finish at the World Cup or Euros was third at the 2018 World Cup. Now they’re facing the real possibility of an early exit and no trophies for this generation of aging talent.

Belgium was outplayed for much of the game in its 1-0 win against Canada. On some level, the Morocco loss isn’t shocking. But fans are soaking up the idea that these European and South American heavyweights are vulnerable.
