Though it sounds fake, Namur is a real place in Belgium and it looks like it has a fortress/citadel situation going on. That means Chris Wondolowski would also be safe there.

In addition to being in Belgium, Leuven is home to the headquarters of Anheuser-Busch InBev, which makes beer. Beer is well known for its alcoholic content, and alcohol is well known for the ability to dim painful memories. This makes Leuven an ideal place for Chris Wondolowski to go next.
