Before Betting On Belgium vs Canada
This looks set to be one of the most exciting games in Group F, as a day that all Canadian fans have been looking forward to finally arrives. However, Canada will need to hit the ground running if they have any hope of reaching the next round, which won’t be an easy feat against an incredibly talented Belgium team.
Canada qualified for the World Cup in excellent fashion, as they won 14 of the 20 qualifiers that they played. During that run, they lost on just two occasions, and scored a national record of 54 goals in qualification. However, they will be looking for a number of firsts at the World Cup in Qatar, as they will be chasing a first goal, first win and first point.
Belgium’s golden generation of talent has under delivered in recent tournaments, and it may play into their hands that nobody has mentioned them as a potential challenger in Qatar. Roberto Martinez’s side finished third at the previous World Cup, but they were extremely disappointing at the EUROs last summer.
However, their strength will once again be in their attacking play. They were the highest scorers at the World Cup four years ago, and they have an excellent record in the group stages, having gone 12 unbeaten since losing to Saudi Arabia in their final group game at the competition in 1994.
