Belgium have quickly become a nation whom many are tipping for big success. Such lofty expectations could well prove a millstone around the neck of the blossoming Benelux nation, yet with a squad packed of top class talent it’s almost impossible not to get carried away in the hype.
Ten of the 25-strong squad play in the English Premier League, including Manchester City captain Vincent Kompany and Arsenal skipper Thomas Vermaelen. Then there is Eden Hazard, who has already lit up Chelsea since his arrival this season.
Elsewher Jan Vertonghen and Moussa Dembele are recent arrivals at Tottenham, Marouane Fellaini is a mainstay for Everton, while Romelu Lukaku is one of the brightest strikers in Europe. Further afield, Zenit St Petersburg have just bought midfielder Axel Witsel from Benfica for 40 million euros.
Yet where Belgium maybe wet behind the ears, Croatia are wily and experienced.
With the likes of Joe Simunic, Darijo Srna, Ivan Perisic and Vedran Corluka, the Eastern Europeans are packed with players who have competed at the highest level, while the Croatians have a thrilling forward-line of Nikica Jelavic and Mario Mandzukic who are ably supported by Real Madrid’s Luka Modric.
Recent history shows that matches between Belgium and Croatia are notorious close affairs, so expect a tight match in which one goal maybe prove the difference between the sides.
