World Cup News:Belgium vs Canada preview
Belgium had recently lost at home and away to neighboring Netherlands, which did not go down well with the Belgian media and fans. Also, losing to Egypt in a warm-up friendly means they have lost back-to-back games, something that hasn’t happened since 2014.
Also, Martinez was blamed for his lack of success, especially following the Nations League elimination with France, where he failed to save a 2–0 lead thanks to a Theo Hernandez strike. The high expectations from the victory-hungry Belgian fans will be a huge pressure and motivation for the team led by football maestro Kevin De Bruyne.
Having scored the most goals and conceded the fewest goals, the Maple Leafs cruised into the final qualifying passage in the CONCACAF region ahead of Mexico and the USA.
Canada’s previous final appearance was in 1986, when they lost all three matches without scoring a goal. However, with a much better squad this time around, they are confident of improving despite a very challenging group on paper. Canada can use the tournament to prepare for the World Cup on home soil in 2026 and gain valuable experience for their young and unrefined squad at this level.
Who is the referee?
The referee for the match is Jani Tsikaswe, who is a Zambian international football referee. Sikaswe is a very experienced official and has participated in the last World Cup.
