Hundreds of fans gather at Brussels Airport to see off Red Devils

October 10, 2013

Around two thousand enthusiastic soccer fans gathered on the tarmac of Brussels Airport yesterday afternoon to see off the Belgian national soccer team who were about to take off to Zaghreb where they will play against Croatia to qualify for the World Cup 2014 in Brazil.

The "Red Devils" then boarded a Brussels Airlines Airbus A320 that was painted for the occasion with the Belgian colours and the national team's logo.

After a water cannon salute, courtesy of the airport fire service, the plane took off for Croatia at about 5.30 pm.
