There is plenty riding on Wales' trip to Belgium for the penultimate fixture of Group A4 of the 2022 UEFA Nations League. Following three defeats and a draw in four of the fixtures so far, the Welsh must win if they're to stand much hope of avoiding relegation from the Group, while Belgium will be desperate for three points of their own as the Red Devils try to keep pace with the Netherlands in the quest to reach next summer's tournament finals.
Read on to find out how to get a Belgium vs Wales live stream and watch the 2022 Nations League online today, no matter where you are in the world.

The teams are in and Belgium start with plenty of big names as Kevin De Bruyne, Eden Hazard and Thibaut Courtois all get the nod from the off. Youri Tielemans and Axel Witsel start in central midfield, with Michy Batshuayi gets the nod up front for the Red Devils. Former Premier League stars Jan Vertonghen and Toby Alderweireld begin in a back three.
For Wales, Gareth Bale starts on the bench as the Dragons' talisman continues his gradual fitness plan to be in peak form for the World Cup. That means Brennan Johnson starts in a front three alongside Dan James and Kieffer Moore, with MK Dons' Matthew Smith partnering Ethan Ampadu in midfield. Connor Roberts and Neco Williams start as wing-backs.
Belgium may have World Cup matters more firmly on their mind with this winter's jamboree the last chance for their golden generation to finally pick up some silverware, but the Nations League still represents an important competition. Kevin De Bruyne, Romelu Lukaku and Co. should arguably have made more of their gifts internationally than the World Cup semi-finals, but Roberto Martinez is determined for the Red Devils to win a trophy. AC Milan attacking midfielder Charles De Ketelaere is the next cab off the Belgium wonderkid taxi rank.
Wales also have a World Cup on the horizon – their first since 1958 – and not even Nations League relegation will unduly worry Rob Page if these next two fixtures help with preparations for Qatar. Gareth Bale will again don his Wales superhero outfit in search of his fading magic after almost single-handedly helping his country qualify for this winter's big one, while Dan James should be in from the off to maintain his record of starting every competitive fixture since his 2018 debut.
The reverse fixture in June saw Nottingham Forest's Brennan Johnson equalise for Wales four minutes from time at the Cardiff City Stadium. Follow our guide to get a Belgium vs Wales live stream and watch the 2022 Nations League online from anywhere today.
