Ex-Everton manager Roberto Martinez has been named the new head coach of Belgium.

Martinez replaces Marc Wilmots, who left his position two weeks after his side's quarter-final defeat at the hands of Wales in Euro 2016.

The Spaniard was sacked by the Toffees after three years in charge of the Merseyside club, and it will be Martinez's fourth managerial role and his first as a national head coach.

The 43-year-old managed Wigan ans Swansea prior to being appointed Everton's manager in 2013 but was sacked before the final league game of the 2015-16 season with Everton in 12th position.

Martinez has had some previous experience with Belgian players, managing Marouane Fellaini, Romelu Lukaku and Kevin Mirallas during his time at Goodison Park.

His first match in charge of Belgium will be on September 1 against Spain.
