He became the second youngest player to play for Belgium when he made his national-team debut against Northern Ireland in 1997. The powerful striker initially emerged with R. Excelsior Mouscron and then starred for R. Standard de Liege, with whom he scored 16 goals in 26 matches. While still a teenager, he made two substitute appearances with Belgium at the 1998 World Cup. He has since left the Belgian league for FC Schalke 04 for a Belgian record fee.

He has had a glittering club career since a low-key start with Winterslag. He smashed over 100 goals in six seasons with RSC Anderlecht before moving onto PSV Eindhoven where he has starred in numerous Dutch league triumphs. His international career began over twelve years ago when he made his debut in a 3-0 victory against Hungary, however it took four years for him to register his first international goal. Ever since his performances at the highest level have been mercurial and his goals tally disappointing for a player of such technical ability, flair and finishing power. After the World Cup, Nilis retired from international football, citing various reasons for his departure. He announced his willingness to return to international duty in November 1999 after the departure of manager George Leekens and was recalled to the squad by Robert Waseige in April 2000.

The veteran defender is enjoying some of the best form of his career in the Belgian defence, as evidenced by his winning the Golden Shoe Award as Belgian Player of the Year in 1999. He made his Belgian debut in 1990, and has been a virtual ever-present in Belgian squads ever since. He was formerly a regular in the heart of the midfield, but he now operates as a tough-tackling and ball-playing centre-half.

International: 10 caps, 7 goals

The naturalised Belgian has made a big impact in the Belgian league and for the national team. He scored 40 goals in two seasons with Genk, helping them to the league title in 1998/99, while he also won the Belgian Footballer of the Year accolade. After being ignored by his native Croatia, marriage to a Belgian girl made him eligible for his adopted country, and he made his debut in August 1999.

Wilmots has arguably been one of the best Belgian players of the 1990s, scoring freely from midfield. He spent ten seasons in the Belgian league, most notably with R. Standard Liege. His ability to strike from deep-lying positions was never better illustrated than when he struck five goals in helping FC Schalke 04 to reach the UEFA Cup final in 1996/97. In the 1998 World Cup he scored twice against Mexico.

The controversial striker returned to the national team after a nine-month self-imposed exile. However, despite his roller-coaster career, there is no denying De Bilde’s quality in front of goal. He burst onto the Belgian league scene in 1994, when he won the Belgian Player of the Year award. He subsequently shone for PSV Eindhoven, whom he helped to win the Dutch league title in 1997, and showed his class with 67 goals in his first 100 games for three clubs.
Anderlecht & Belgium

Birthplace: Zele, Belgium

Transfer Fee: -
Solid rather than spectacular, this experienced goalkeeper is now back in Belgium with RSC Anderlecht after a spell abroad with Sporting Clube de Portugal. He made his international debut against Denmark in August 1989 but spent the next few years in the shadow of Michel Preud’homme, watching the 1990 and 1994 FIFA World Cups from the sidelines. After more than a decade of involvement in the Belgian squad, he is now the Red Devils’ first-choice ‘keeper having replaced former Anderlecht team-mate Geert De Vlieger at both club and international level.

Belgium became independent from the Netherlands in 1830 and was occupied by Germany during World Wars I and II. It has prospered in the past half century as a modern, technologically advanced European state and member of NATO and the EU. Tensions between the Dutch-speaking Flemings of the north and the French-speaking Walloons of the south have led in recent years to constitutional amendments granting these regions formal recognition and autonomy.
