Belgium vs Canada Preview

Belgium is ranked second in the FIFA Men’s Rankings, and is the favorite to win here. The Canadian squad is ranked 41st in the world, but they’re not planning on being a pushover.

“We want to surprise people, because I think people still see us as underdogs; Canada and the World Cup, they should just be happy to be here,” Canadian midfielder Jonathan Osorio said, via the Vancouver Sun. “But that’s not our mentality. We’re here to compete, to compete at a high level. We believe within our group, with the quality that we have and our brotherhood we can go as far as we want to go.”

Belgium isn’t invulnerable, either. The Red Devils fell to Egypt, 2-0, in a friendly match leading up to the Cup, and manager Roberto Martinez says the loss may have been just the eye-opener his team needed.

“It wasn’t the result or the performance we expected, but maybe we needed that,” Martinez said after the loss. “Egypt deserved to win of course but this result is unacceptable before the World Cup. The mentality must change. So, this is a good wake-up call.”

Top players for Canada include Bayern Munich forward Alphonso Davies and midfielder Atiba Hutchinson.

Top players for Belgium include midfielder Kevin De Bruyne and Inter Milan forward Romelu Lukaku.
