Portugal thrashed Luxembourg 9-0 to extend their perfect start to their Euro 2024 Group J qualifying campaign.
In his managerial career, Martinez has generally favoured a possession-based style of play. He credits Johan Cruyff with being the strongest influence on him in terms of his playing philosophy.
He has coaxed some magnificent performances out of the star-studded Belgium side, but is yet to deliver a major trophy to the Low Country.
While coaching Wigan, he was interviewed for the vacant Liverpool position which would end up going to Brendan Rodgers and soon after, Martinez would take up the managerial post at Everton, replacing long-time manager David Moyes.
However, after Belgium flopped at the 2022 World Cup he left the job, only to become head coach of Portugal a month later.
Roberto Martinez and Belgium
Martinez was appointed Belgium coach on August 3, 2016.
Under Martinez, a star-studded Belgium cruised into the 2018 World Cup finals as the first European side to qualify.
Despite never having won a major trophy, Belgium were among the favourites in Russia and they did not disappoint, topping their group. Belgium's only blip in the opening weeks was going behind to Japan before winning 3-2 in the round of 16.
Belgium secured a famous victory over Brazil in the quarter-finals before losing a tight semi-final against neighbours France. They claimed the bronze at the event thanks to a 2-0 win over England in the third-place play-off.
Belgium put in another dominant display in qualifying for Euro 2020, winning all 10 matches in a group that included Russia and Scotland.
Highs and lows with Wigan Athletic and Swansea City
Martinez joined Wigan as both a player and a coach, but his second coming was far more dramatic.
As a player he made 187 league appearances for the Greater Manchester-based club while they were languishing in the lower leagues, but as a manager, he guided a club that would eventually push for a place in Europe.
Martinez retired from playing early, at the age of 33, shortly after leaving Wigan and began his coaching career.
Martinez's biggest success at Wigan proved bittersweet as he guided them to their first FA Cup while also seeing them relegated from the Premier League.
Wigan won the 2013 FA Cup with a dramatic 91st-minute goal by Ben Watson, but three days later, their relegation from the top flight was confirmed with a 4-1 loss to Arsenal. As a result, Martinez is a figure that divides Wigan fans.
Taking the reins at Everton
Martinez started his Everton career on the back foot, with fans unsure what to make of the man who replaced David Moyes. It didn't help that his previous team had suffered relegation and that Martinez was infamously prickly with the press.
He had the backing of the board for much of his tenure at Everton, but when results took a downturn, he was sacked at the end of the 2015/16 season. During the 2013/14 campaign, the club reached its peak under Martinez, who was at the helm for a then-record seven Premier League wins in a row. However, a late-season slump saw them miss out on fourth place and the following season's Champions League.
A well-travelled playing career
He joined Chester City on a free in 2006, but stayed there for just one season before returning to Swansea.
Martinez was initially re-signed by the Swans as a player-manager but felt that he would do a disservice to his coaching duties by continuing his playing career, and he hung up his boots at the age of 33.
Martinez has a strong connection to Britain and met his wife Beth while playing in Scotland for Motherwell. The couple were married in 2009 in Swansea, towards the end of his time as manager of the Swans. The couple have a daughter named Luella.
Reported net worth
Martinez did not bag any big-money contracts in his playing days but enjoyed a multi-million dollar deal with Belgium.
He enjoys a commercial relationship with Swiss watchmakers Hublot and will often display their timepieces during his signature air-punching goal celebration.
