Martinez: Belgium future will be discussed after World Cup

Roberto Martinez, who watched his side beat Poland 1-0 in the National League, says he will be in charge of Belgium later this year.

Michi Batshuwai headed in the first half to help Belgium win their second league title of the season, although they beat Netherlands 4-1 earlier this month to move three points clear of Louis van Gaal.

Such results, as well as the fact that Belgium could not win a major trophy, suggest that Martinez’s career could be in jeopardy even if he produces the “golden generation” talent.

But the former Everton manager, who led the Red Devils to the World Cup in Qatar, is entertaining questions about the future.

“It will be the right decision [to discuss the future after the tournament]”For me, not as a coach, but for Belgian football.

“Everyone can be sure. My only wish and wish is to see Belgium as strong as possible at the World Cup.

“I want to make the fans as proud as possible. All my work will go into this in the coming months.

“We will see after the World Cup. It makes sense to look at international football from major to major competition. There is nothing strange about this.

In Group F Qatar, Belgium will face Canada, Morocco and Croatia, finishing third in 2018 in Russia.

Martinez’s side had a long way to go in Poland, conceding just two shots on target and allowing Robert Lewandowski to make just one attempt in the game.

But twice, as Carol Swedesky was on the verge of death, Belgium came close to scoring the equalizer, and Martinez was delighted with his side’s victory.

The Red Devils have seven points from their first four National League games this month, and the coach has confirmed that the matches will be crucial.

“We defended well and showed a lot of personality,” Martinez said. “Winning even more is more satisfying. [if] It was an easy victory.

“These matches were used to gather information for the World Cup, and we got it.

“The results have not always been good, but there is no perfection. Not in football and in life. The reaction after Wales [a 1-1 draw last week] it was. I Remember ”
