  • Union Royale Belge des Sociétés de Football-Association was founded in 1895 and played its first game against France in Brussels on 1st May 1904, resulting in a 3-3 draw.
    Belgium played England for the first time in 1921 and were regular opponents during the 20s, but to date have registered only one victory: a 3-2 win in Brussels on 9th May 1936.
    All four competitive matches have resulted in draws after 90 minutes. The first (4-4) was during the '54 world Cup in Switzerland - England's first experience of extra time. The second was in the group stages of the '80 European Championship in Italy. The third and most memorable was in the second round of the '90 World Cup when David Platt scored the winner in the 119th minute. Most recently, during the King Hussian II Tournament prior to the '98 World Cup, the match proceeded directly to penalty kicks where England naturally lost.
