Though Belgium have not been included in the World Cup for 12 years, they are greatly endowed with great players to kick off their comeback this year. Some of those include: Chelsea playmaker Eden Hazard, focused striker Romelu Lukaku, and Manchester City player Vincent Kompany.

The only original member from the 2002 Japan and South Korea World Cup is their defender, Daniel can Buyten, who has been training hard with tackles during their sessions.

“Every player should be ready. There are only 11 starting places and everybody wants to be in the line-up but the substitutes must be ready at any moment to make the difference,” said Buyten. Their coach Marc Wilmots reassured that idea as he arranged his young players on their first competition.

Though an undeveloped team, Belgium is already considered as the favourite in the group, and are expected to come out of it.

On the other hand, Algeria’s loose defences makes it look like they’re a weak team to take on. They have never surpassed the Group level in the World Cups, but gets better with their performance for four years now. “We’re going to try to trouble this Belgian team, we’re ready for it and we’ve done everything possible to prepare ourselves,” said assistant coach Nourredine Kourichi.
