The Royal Belgian Football Association has announced that Marc Wilmots has signed a two-year contract extension to remain as manager of the Belgium national side until 2018.

The 45-year-old, who has been in charge of the team since 2012, had been under contract until the end of the 2016 European Championships, but has now agreed to continue for the 2018 World Cup qualifiers.

A statement from the Association said: "Marc Wilmots and the URBSFA have found an agreement to extend their collaboration for four more years.

"He will therefore be leading our Red Devils for the Euro 2016 and the 2018 World Cup campaigns."

Belgium will play in their first World Cup finals in 12 years in Brazil this summer.
