WC22: Belgium vs Canada

Four years after finishing third at the World Cup in Russia, the best in the team’s history, the Belgian players arrived in Qatar hoping to reach the final. This could be the last chance for Belgium’s golden generation with Kevin de Bruyne, Eden Hazard, Thibaut Courtois… to win the first championship in history.

However, there are certain concerns about Belgium’s form and performance. The last friendly match to prepare for the World Cup, despite launching the strongest team, coach Roberto Martinez and his students received a 1-2 defeat against Egypt, in a match where the exchange recorded the odds. Belgium handicap 0:1 similar to tonight’s competition with Canada.

The CONCACAF World Cup 2022 qualifying campaign saw Canada emerge as the region’s dark horse. They scored the most goals and conceded the least to end the campaign at the top of the table, ahead of both Mexico and the US. Returning to the World Cup arena for the first time since 1986, Canada is putting a lot of effort into continuing to surprise.

An impressive victory against an old opponent like Japan in a recent friendly match will certainly add confidence to the team from the CONCACAF region. Coach John Herdman’s army may not have World Cup experience, but with youthful aspirations, Canada is ready to make Belgium’s veterans have a hard day at work.
