Belgium vs Canada squad for the FIFA World Cup starting number 11 for the Group F match in Qatar 2022 | Update News

Belgium’s golden generation begins their last stand when they face Canada in the first Group F match in Qatar.

This will most likely be the last World Cup for the likes of Eden Hazard, Kevin De Bruyne and Jan Vertonghen, so Roberto Martinez will be hoping for a result worthy of this combination of talents.

The Spaniard finished third last time in Russia but wants more from a group that has learned from its positive experience in past major tournaments.

Below are the expected lineups for both teams.

Lineups Belgium vs Canada

Three points against Canada could discourage Belgium from risking Romelu Lukaku in the second group game against Morocco, according to Martinez.

Of the striker, he said: “We are very pleased with the way he is progressing. Yesterday he had a very good training, not in the group, but he is steadily progressing.

“We don’t have a schedule. I can’t say if it will be the second game or the third game.

“If I follow the medical advice, this will be the third game. If I follow the player’s well-being, maybe we have a chance for a second game.”

Belgium predicts start 11

Estimated composition of Belgium (3-4-3, from right to left): 1. Courtois (GK) – 5. Alderweireld, 15. Vertonghen, 2. Debast – 6. Meunier, 21. Tielemans, 18. Witsel, 18. Carrasco – 18. De Bruyne, 14. Batshuayi, 10. E. Hazard

  • Injured: Lukaku
  • Suspended: no

FROM Lukaku ruled out due to hip injury, Misha Batshuayi most likely, will earn a start forward.

Thomas Meunier (cheekbone) and Jan Vertonghen (knock) are recovering from injury, but could make it to the starting 11.

Canada predicts start 11

Predicted Canadian lineup (3-4-3, right to left): 18. Borjan (B) – 2. Johnston, 5. Vitoria, 4. Miller – 11. Buchanan, 7. Eustaquio, 13. Hutchinson, 3. Adekugbe – 19. Davis, 17. Larin, 20. David

  • Wounded: no
  • Suspended: no

Canada got a well-timed triple boost in fitness ahead of their first World Cup game since 1986.

Alphonso Davies, Stephen Eustachio as well as Milan Boryan everyone was cleared to start despite doubts at the beginning of the week.
