Belgium will take on Algeria in a Group H match of the 2014 World Cup Soccer at Estadio Mineirao in Belo Horizonte. Belgium team is considered to be the dark horses of the 2014 world cup and has a considerable edge over Algeria in this match. Belgium or the Red Devils are returning to the world cup football arena after a gap of 12 years and this time they seem to have a bunch of amazing young players who do not have any dearth of talent and skills. Coach Marc Wilmots is pretty confident of a great performance by Belgium in this world cup and there are some players who will hold the key for Belgium’s performance in this world cup as well as in the future.
The last time when Belgium produced a spectacular show at the world cup soccer championship was during the 1986 World Cup when they reached the semi-finals before felling to Argentina, who went on to win the title that time. After that they failed to make an impact in the world championships and Enzo Scifo was one of the best players for them during the period between 1986 to 1994. After that the Belgium football team has failed to produce a high calibre player and remained out of the World cup championships for the last 12 years.
This time Belgium is determined to prove who good a team they are and they have some of the best players available. The likes of Alderweireld, Kompany, Vermaelen, Vertonghen, Hazard, Dembele, Witsel, Fellaini, Lukaku and Mirallas can spell danger to any of the best teams in the world. Lukaku was reported to be suffering from injury, but some sources has revealed that he is ready and fit for the world cup championship.
If Belgium is the dark horse of the tournament, then Algeria is certainly the underdog with no sufficient international experience and they will really use this venue as a great platform to get more international exposure. But the Algerians cannot be written off so easily and they are pretty much capable of pulling out some surprises. The major players from Algerian world cup squad include Mostefa, Bougherra, Cadamuro, Taider, Medjani, Soudani, Djabou and Feghouli.
The match will be the best opportunity for the Belgium team to warm up well for the 2014 world cup campaign and Belgium football fans hope that their team put up a formidable show in their opening match against Algeria. Belgium fans will be eagerly waiting to watch their favourite players in action and hope that Belgium does not let them down this time.
