This might be Belgium’s last chance to receive a title under their “Golden Generation”, in a major tournament. As for Canada, this is their first game in the World Cup in 36 years. Their meeting will be on November 24, 2022, at 3:00 PM (GMT+8).

From their history, Belgium and Canada only faced each other once, and Belgium is the one who got the victory. Canada is indeed hungry this year as this is the first time they will play in the World Cup since 1986. However, their return is challenged as early as now since they have a tough challenge ahead of them. They meet the second-ranked team in the World, the Belgium. Belgium on one hand is looking confident this year, as they are the second best in the World when it comes to football.

Belgium picked usual members of their squad, which is why it is no longer surprising if they will go far this year. However, although they are just their usual players, they have yet to make an impact internationally. Talent-wise, you cannot ask for anything for the Belgians because it is readily available for them. However, no matter how talented they are, it is frustrating to see them keep on failing. Being called as the World’s number two in football, expectations are surely soaring high for them. Their fans are expecting so much of them, but many will also be disappointed if they failed reaching the expectations of them.

The fitness of Lukaku is Belgium’s major concern here, and will not be available for this match. His presence will surely make a difference in their campaign, so the Belgians are hopeful to have him back.

For a team who just qualified for their second World Cup, Canada is surely brave to parade young stars for their campaign. Their first World Cup appearance was last 1986, all thanks to John Herdman, he brought Canada back to the tournament. He was appointed as their manager in 2018. Since then, he was able to make Canada progress, and are now headed to the World Cup. This Canadian squad is a building team, so expect them to play with some sort of uncertainty.
