Belgium vs Canada Prediction and Betting Tips | 23rd November 2022
The 2022 FIFA World Cup continues, as an experienced Belgian team prepares to take on a young Canadian side
looking to make an impression at the Al Rayyan Stadium's highest level on Wednesday. Roberto Martinez has chosen the usual suspects to make the World Cup squad.
Toby Alderweireld (center back) and Jan Vertonghen (midfielder), Axel Witsel (midfielder), and Dries Meyers (attackers), have earned over 100 caps for Belgium.
Thibaut Courois, goalkeeper and Kevin De Bruyne midfielder are also not far behind. Martinez, an alumnus of Everton, is the current manager.
He has been with us since 2016. His tenure has seen mixed results. Belgium, despite all their talent, has failed to make an impact on international tournaments.
This is a fact that many Belgian fans have been disappointed by. Canada and Belgium met once before. They won that game.
Leandro Trssard, a Belgian forward has scored nine goals in the Premier League for Brighton & Hove Albion.
It will be interesting seeing what Roberto Martinez chooses for Belgium. He has shown preference to play with a three man backline.
It is sensible to continue with that defensive strategy considering the combined age Jan Vertonghen (and Toby Alderweireld) are both 68.
There has been a lot of talk about Leandro Trossard being given the start in attack ahead of Eden Hazard. This is for obvious reasons.
Trossard, however, has demonstrated that he can play at club level as a left wingback, so it is not surprising to see Trossard pushed into the side to capitalize upon his outstanding form.
