Roberto Martinez is Belgium’s new manager

Wilmots lost his jobas Belgium boss after their failure to get beyond the quarter-finals at Euro 2016, with Wales defeating them 3-1 in the last eight.

Martinez has been out of work since being sacked by Everton late last season following a disappointing Premier League campaign. He was appointed as David Moyes’ successor in June 2013 and guided Everton to their best Premier League points tally – 72 – and a fifth-place finish in his first season in charge.
Martinez smashed the club’s transfer record with the £28m signing of Romelu Lukaku from Chelsea in the summer of 2014, but failed to build on the success of his debut campaign at the club, finishing in 11th.
