Group B
 
Belgium (World Ranking-15./European Ranking-7.) : 2013 was definitely the year, Belgians enjoyed and miss the most. They defeated Serbia 3-2 and got the 3rd place at the European Championship in that year. Two years later Belgium matched against Serbia once more at the Europe Championship, this time in the quarterfinals, and lost 1-3; still their performance must have given them some hope for the upcoming tournament since it wouldn’t had been much of a surprise if they had advanced to the semi-finals.
