Wales kick off their World Cup 2022 qualifying campaign with a trip to Belgium on Wednesday.

Caretaker manager Robert Page will continue to take charge, although Ryan Giggs will be involved in some capacity. Giggs was stood down as manager from Wales’ November internationals following his arrest on suspicion of assault, and the 47-year-old will remain on leave for this round of games.

The Welsh will play at this summer’s Euros – having memorably made it to the semi-finals at the first time of asking in 2016 – but will be looking to make it back to the World Cup for the first time since 1958, their only appearance to date.

Following the opener in Leuven, Wales play host to Mexico in a friendly at the Cardiff City Stadium, before facing the Czech Republic at the same venue in their second Group E match. Wales are unbeaten in 11 competitive outings, having recorded 3-1 and 1-0 wins over Finland and the Republic of Ireland respectively in their most recent internationals.

Use a VPN to watch a Belgium v Wales live stream from outside your country

If you’re on holiday or just simply out of the country, your domestic on-demand services won’t work – the broadcaster knows exactly where you are from your IP address. Your access to the game will be automatically blocked, which is annoying if you’ve paid a subscription fee and don't want to use an illegal, buffering stream that makes you miss another Jose Mourinho tantrum. And that's where we recommend ExpressVPN (more on which below). 

All you need to do is get a Virtual Private Network (VPN) to get beyond such aggravations (assuming it complies with your broadcaster’s T&Cs). A VPN creates a private connection between your device and the internet, meaning suppliers can’t work out where you are and what you’re doing. The info going to and from is entirely encrypted.

There are plenty of options out there, including:
