The so-called “Red Devils” have reportedly invited their WAGs and children to a barbecue and two-night sleepover at their training base in the Moscow region before they head to a match against the English national team in Kaliningrad. But not everyone is going to show up for the family reunion.

The manager of the Belgian national team, Roberto Martinez, has invited his players’ loved ones to join the Red Devils in Russia in-between their games against Tunisia and England, as The Sun reports. In contrast to his predecessor, Marc Wilmots, who reportedly frowned upon family visits during the UEFA Euro 2016, Martinez is pro-family approach during the tournament, according to the British outlet.

One-hundred-and-twelve additional visitors are also expected at the Belgian training base in the Moscow region, where a barbecue party is scheduled for the team and their partners and children ahead of their final group game. The Red Devils, who crushed Panama 3-0 on June 18, will face the Three Lions in Kaliningrad on June 28.

However, midfielder Kevin De Bruyne, who was one of the key players during the Belgian match against Panama, won’t see his wife and 2-year-old-son at the party.

"I would also like to see my wife and child but we have decided differently. Among other things it’s because I did not want my son to make that flight. Will I feel lonely? I have prepared myself for that. We will speak on the phone once a day. Everyone decides what is best for his family and I did that too," he said, cited by The Sun.
