Notes - Very rare player shirt believed to have been issued to or worn by Sonck around the period when Les Diables Rouges failed to qualify for the 2010 World Cup. In a qualifying group that boasted a solid Spain side winning all of their matches, Belgium were competing for the second and final qualification spot but back to back losses against eventual qualifiers Bosnia and Herzegovina alongside disappointing losses to both Armenia and Estonia saw Belgium finish 4th with just 10 points. Sonck started his career at Molenbeek in 1994 and finished it at KE Appelterre-Eichem in 2014 having played for Genk, Ajax or Borussia Mönchengladbach amongst others. The striker represented Belgium 55 times between 2001 and 2010.
