I was there. In addition to taking his picture with the Belgian team, King Philippe greeted the players of the Dutch and Belgian teams before the game and awarded the cup.

You can watch the game here:


You can see the King at 24:16 and 24.50 (as well as other times)

You can see the King having his picture taken with the Belgian team starting 25:24.

You can see the King awarding the cup starting 2:24:54.

A few things that stand out:

  1. The Belgian anthem sung in Dutch (in the soccer World Cup in Brazil, the crowd sang it mostly in French).
  2. The enthusiastic way the players cry: "Voor Vorst, Voor Vrijheid en Voor Recht" (very royalist for a Flemish crowd !).
  3. It is always odd when Het Wilhelmus is sung in Belgium considering that the main goal of the Belgian Revolution was precisely to get rid of the House of Orange (of course, Belgium and the Netherlands now have a very good bilateral relation, but that has not always been the case).
