Canada is looking to keep moving forward in a complicated Pool F after a stunning World Cup finals qualification. The formation led by coach John Herdmann – the first coach to sit on the national team bench at both the men’s and women’s World Cups – needed to break the ice first, the first and only participation to score that goal. At the World Championships, the license plate did not arrive in 1986, in three defeats collected in the elimination round. Of course, the obstacle is not an easy one: against Belgium, a team that already leads the world rankings and the team with the most participations in the final stage – no less than fourteen – has never lifted the trophy among national teams, returning from third place in the previous edition. The only precedent between the teams dates back to June 1989: the Red Devils won 2-0 in Ottawa.
Selections from Belgium-Canada, Martinez
Ballots in the Belgian system are often attached to a back pocket, placed in front of the essential courtois between the posts. The safest in this place appears to be Alderweireld, although there are reservations about settling on both young Depast and ex-Bologna theater players, who are recovering positions and undermining the ownership of specialists Vertonghen and Dentoker. Witzel and Dielemans will be positioned in the center of midfield, with Carrasco at full swing on the left and the winner of the ballot between Meunier and Castagne on the right. In attack, the stalwarts are called Eden Hazard and De Bruyne, while Fenerbahce striker Michy Batshuayi is the number one candidate to replace the injured Lukaku. But look out for “Ciro” Mertens and especially Luis Opanta, who appeared in Qatar after three months at Lens – in Ligue 1 – where he averaged a goal every 95 minutes.
Belgium-Canada, Herdmann’s Selections
The Canadian eleven that will debut in Qatar in 2022 appears to have well-defined outlines. Red Star Belgrade full-back Milan Borjan was in goal: in front of him was a four-man Maginot formed by full-backs Adekukbe and Johnston and a central duo of Miller and Vitoria. strong point Canucks It’s a midfield that mixes size and quality: Eustáquio (who grew up fast at Porto) will dictate the times, with the returning Hutchinson, Buchanan on the right and Davies waiting on the left as the tall wingers. Unlike what is usually seen in the Bundesliga, he works as an attacker rather than a defender. An attack that fits well with Laurin – looking for redemption after early-season hiccups at Brooks – and Jonathan David, who has replaced him with alarming scoring averages at Lille and a chance to fly firmly in the international arena.
