Belgium win wiped from records

FC's Gab Marcotti points out potential weaknesses in the Belgium World Cup roster.

ZURICH -- FIFA has wiped Belgium's 5-1 win against Luxembourg from the record books because coach Marc Wilmots used too many substitutes in last week's World Cup warm-up match.

- Casteels cut from Belgium squad

FIFA rules allow a maximum of six substitutes in friendlies, and Wilmots used seven.

Forward Romelu Lukaku's hat trick and Manchester United winger Adnan Januzaj's international debut in the May 26 match in Genk no longer count. Backup goalkeeper Sammy Bossut's debut also is erased.

The result will not count toward the FIFA rankings being updated on Friday.

Belgium is currently No. 12.

Wilmots made five changes at halftime, a sixth in the 61st minute, and officially broke the rules in the 77th when defender Jan Vertonghen was replaced by Nicolas Lombaerts.
