The Norwich playmaker's strike to give Gordon Strachan's side a shock 1-0 win in Zagreb put the Belgians three points clear of the Croats at the top of Group A and in pole position to qualify for Brazil next summer as section winners and for that he has the gratitude of Belgium fans.
Snodgrass, though, is hoping to send the travelling support back home empty handed.
He said: "I have had some crazy Belgians tweeting me, telling me I am a hero. I didn't realise that.
"But you can easily become the villain.
"The eyes are on the prize and we have a massive game against a very good side with some top talent.
"So hopefully we can build on the Croatia game.
"We won't worry too much about the Belgians the same way we didn't worry too much about the Croatians.
"Belgium will now know that we won't be pushovers."
Snodgrass is one of several Scotland players keen to take over the mantle of key striker following the retirement of Kenny Miller.
The 33-year-old Vancouver Whitecaps striker called time on his international career following his goal in the 3-2 friendly defeat to England at Wembley last month.
Snodgrass, a former Livingston and Leeds player, is confident that there is enough firepower in the current set-up to replace Miller, who scored 18 times in 69 appearances.
"We have players in the squad who can score goals," he said.
"Jordan Rhodes' record speaks for itself.
"I've seen Leigh Griffiths do it since he was 16 and Steven Fletcher's record in the Premier League is unbelievable.
"I played with Ross McCormack and he is the one of the best players I have played with.
"We also have Jamie Mackie, so we have loads of players in the team who can score goals."
Snodgrass wants to be the Key Striker? Are you sure? Just because he can score a goal or two doesn't mean he is a striker!! I would expect better reporting from F365!!!- nwc
