The Belgian national team, second in the FIFA world rankings and considered one of the European teams with the best personalities, will appear for the first time tomorrow against Canada, which returns to the World Cup after 36 years of absence, in a match for Group Six of the tournament. Qatar World Cup 2022.
The match will be held at Ahmed Bin Ali Stadium in Al-Rayyan from four o’clock in the afternoon (Argentine time), with Zambian referee Jani Sikazwe, and it will be broadcast on public television.
The national teams of Morocco and Croatia, the current world runners-up, will play in the same group tomorrow, starting at seven o’clock in Argentina, at Al-Bayt Stadium in the city of Jor.
Belgium is a European powerhouse with outstanding players, especially top scorer Romelu Lukaku, from Inter Italy, who will not play tomorrow due to a muscle injury, with a sensitive loss because he is the all-time top scorer for the Belgians with 68 goals.
Spanish coach Roberto Martinez has doubts about the powerful striker until the second match of the 27th against Morocco and is pleased to be able to use him in the third appointment against Croatia, on the 1st of December.
But Belgium is not limited to Lukaku, the “brain” of the team is the wonderful Kevin De Bruyne (Manchester City), a man who can do the illogical and open any difficult match, he has the best goalkeeper in the world along with Thibaut Courtois. (Real Madrid) And another talented, he was punished with injuries like Eden Hazard (Real Madrid).
Belgium is a team with quick transfers, attacking power and talent, they are not title favourites, but would undoubtedly be a troublesome and dangerous opponent for anyone.
Canada is back in the World Cup finals after 36 years, and hasn’t been a part of the action since Mexico 1986, where Argentina won the World Cup with the great Diego Maradona. On that occasion they lost all three matches without scoring against France (0-1), Hungary (0-2) and the Soviet Union (0-2).
The English team, John Herdman, dreams of improving this performance with a physically strong and very enthusiastic formation, as Bayern Munich defender Alphonso Davies, who is in doubt due to a muscle injury.
