Belgian soccer coach Roberto Martinez has agreed to extend his contract by two years until 2020, in a boost for the national team ahead of the World Cup in Russia.
The Belgian football association said on Friday it had confidence in the Spaniard after he steered the nation to this year's World Cup with nine wins and one draw.
Martinez, having previously managed English Premier League club Everton, will name his 23-man World Cup squad on Monday.
The football association added the contract was extended for two years under the same conditions as when he signed in 2016, without giving details. Belgian media have said Martinez had been earning one million euros ($A1.57 million) per year.
His assistants, Graeme Jones and Richard Evans, have also signed up for a further two years. There was no news about former France striker Thierry Henry, who had also been working as an assistant to Martinez.
Belgium are drawn in Group G in the World Cup, where they will play Panama, Tunisia and England.
