One of the most underachieving teams in Europe, Belgium is a magnificent footballing nation. A country that has constantly gifted us with several legends of the game. May it be Machester City’s Kevin De Bruyne or Chelsea’s Eden Hazard.
The charismatic footballing nation also produces some brilliant strikers who can put the in the net in a variety of ways. So let’s have a look at the top 5 greatest Belgium goalscorers of all time.
5. Marc Wilmots (28 Goals)
Marc Wilmots scored 28 goals for Belgium in 70 appearances. He was part of the Belgium side in four different additions to the World Cup (1990, 1994, 1998, 2002).
His attacking mentality helped him score several times in different World Cup editions making him Belgium’s highest goalscorer in the World Cup.
4. Paul Van Himst (30 Goals)
Paul Van Himst helped his national team with 30 goals in 81 appearances. He was part of the Red Devil’s side that came in third at Euro 1972. His fantastic goalscoring ability quickly made him a vital component of the National team.
Paul’s greatest achievement was probably when he scored a hat trick against Israel in 1965 during the World Cup qualifier.
3. Bernard Voorhoof (30 Goals)
Bernard Voorhoof is a legendary figure in Belgian football. He is perhaps the only player in this list from the pre-war era. He was part of the Belgium team that played all three pre-war world cup tournaments.
Bernard Voorhoof scored 30 goals for the red devils in 61 games and was the top scorer for his country at that time.
2. Eden Hazard (33 Goals)
Eden Hazard has been compared to every great player that ever set foot on the football pitch. The deadly dribbler scored 33 goals for his country in 133 matches.
The former Chelsea star gave us a few screamers during his time with the red devils. He even captained the Belgium team around the 2018 FIFA World Cup. He also won the silver ball for Belgium.
1. Romelu Lukaku (71 Goals)
A lethal goalscorer for club and country, Romelu Lukaku is arguably Belgium’s greatest goalscorer of all time. Lukaku might not have had the most prosperous club career but he certainly gave his all when it comes to representing Belgium.
The former Chelsea striker bagged a whopping 71 goals for the red devils in 106 outings.
Since making his debut in 2010 against Croatia, Lukaku has quickly climbed up the ranks to become Belgium’s top striking option.
