Roberto Martinez has been appointed as the new head coach of Belgium. Martinez will be succeeding Marc Wilmots who was sacked after Belgium were knocked out of Euro 2016 by Wales in the quarter-finals.The former Everton boss had been linked with the vacancy at Hull but will now lead Belgium into the World Cup 2018 qualifiers after signing a two-year deal.
The 43-year-old is set to fly out to Belgium where a press conference to formally introduce him to the media will take place in Brussels.
His first match will be against Spain in a friendly on September 1st in the Belgian capital.
The Spaniard had been on a three-man shortlist for the vacant position at Hull after Steve Bruce left the premier league new boys earlier this summer, but that job is now set to go to either Chris Coleman or Gianfranco Zola.
