Bitter defeat for Belgium in the World Cup semifinal is tempered by the fact that influential squad members will likely still be around in two years' time for the European Championship where they will have another realistic chance at a major title.But if there is any consolation, it will be that many will return to try again at the Euro 2020 tournament where, should they qualify, Belgium will be among the favorites.Belgium play Saturday in the third place playoff.Belgium's best international performances have been European Championship runners-up in 1980 and now two World Cup semifinals, the first of which was in 1986 .
