Belgium

[50]
Belgium is one of the first continental European countries to play association football. Union Belge des Sociétés de Sports Athlétiques (UBSSA) was formed by ten clubs for football, athletics, cricket, and cycling on 1st September 1895. One year later, that is the year 1896, UBSSA organized the first annual league in Belgium's football history. After a game in 1905, a Dutch reporter wrote that three Belgian football players "worked like demons". One year later, Pierre Walckiers, the manager of Léopold FC nicknamed the players as the Red Devils, inspired by their jersey color as well as the three-peat in 1906. As a result, national team players have earned the nickname of the Red Devils because of their red jerseys. So far, Belgium is the only national team in the world that ranked first in FIFA without winning the World Cup or the Continental Trophy. (Spain ranked first at the end of the year 2008 without winning the World Cup, but had won the European Championship in 1964 and 2008). At the home games, Belgium national team players are usually in black, yellow, and red which represent the Belgian flag. And red dominates and is normally the only jersey color.
