At the Ahmad bin Ali Stadium in Qatar, the Group F matchup between the dominant European nation Belgium and Canada will take place on November 24. However, for Canada, which is playing in its first World Cup match in 36 years, it is all about “confidence, not hope.” For Belgium, their FIFA World Cup 2022 opener may be the last opportunity for many members of their “Golden Generation” to win a major tournament.
Roberto Martinez, the manager of Belgium, is under intense pressure to uphold his reputation after the team’s defeats in the Nations League and Euro 2020 finals. Following Belgium’s loss to France in the Nations League, Martinez, who has been accused of lacking winning instinct, is searching for a magical moment.
On the other hand, Canada defied expectations to win the CONCACAF qualifying final group, giving it an automatic qualifying spot for Qatar 2022. Jonathan Osorio, the midfielder for the team, appears confident in his ability to spring shocks. While John Herdman, a Canadian coach born in England, believes anything is possible and is taking each game as it comes.
World Cup 2022 Belgium:
Kevin De Bruyne of Manchester City, who has 155 goal involvements in just 224 Premier League games, would be a key player for Belgium. The magic is done when he passes the ball, and his opponents merely watch him like spectators. Michy Batshuayi, a striker for Fenerbahce, is superior to him in this regard. However, Romelu Lukaku will be sorely missed.
World Cup 2022 Canada:
The youthful Canadian studs Alphonso Davies and Jonathan David are expected to help the Maple Leafs (Canada) win the game. Atiba Hutchinson, the captain of the Besiktas team and a midfielder, is making his major tournament debut nearly 20 years after making his debut and wants to make an impression.
Belgium vs Canada Potential Lineup:
The starting lineup for Belgium is as follows (3-4-3): Courtois; Alderweireld; Vertonghen; Debast; Meunier; Tielemans; Witsel; Castagne; De Bruyne; Batshuayi; and E Hazard
The following players make up the Canada XI (5-3-2): Buchanan, Hutchinson, Eustaquio, Laryea, Johnston, Steven Vitoria, K Miller, Adekugbe, and Borjan.
