Notes - Very rare player shirt believed to have been issued to or worn during the period when the Red Devils were preparing for the 2002 World Cup in Korea and Japan. The side's first choice keeper for the tournament was Willem II Tilburg shot stopper Geert De Vlieger. The side enjoyed a decent run at the Finals finishing second in their group and going unbeaten after draws against Japan and Tunisia as well as a thrilling 3-2 win over Russia. They faced Brazil in the round of 16 where they lost out to the eventual tournament winners 2-0. De Vlieger played the vast majority of Belgium's games in between the sticks during this period with Frédéric Herpoel and Franky Vandendriessche occasionally getting a run out in friendlies.
