After the Euro 1980 final (where they finished second), Belgium did not convince anymore at the continental level, with early exits in their two appearances at the Euro 1984 and Euro 2000 tournaments.
In this period, the usual 4–4–2 formation featured multiple world-class players such as goalkeepers Jean-Marie Pfaff and Michel Preud'homme and midfielders Jan Ceulemans and Franky Van der Elst, alongside talents as right-back Eric Gerets, playmaker Enzo Scifo and strikers Erwin Vandenbergh and Luc Nilis. All of these Red Devils had retired from international football by 2000.
After the 2002 World Cup, other valuable veterans stopped playing with the national side, including Marc Wilmots and Gert Verheyen. Coach Waseige left as well, with Aimé Anthuenis superseding him.
