Belgium – Algeria
The last group and therefore less important. The group have all the chances and it seems that both the European team is still preferred. Belgium just in the first game has the chance to prove why they are the favorites, and Algeria will be a surprise if any attempt to insert between the top two teams.
Premiership is to Belgium what Serie A’s 15 years ago was for France. In 1998. Tricolori were world champions and two years later are the leaders of Europe, and their striking force built in the land of calcio, led by captain Didier Deschamps. Belgians still have a similar model. Captain Vincent Kompany is a standard first team is Manchester City, Hazard is one of the key people of Chelsea, Goalkeeper Simon Mignolet appearances for Liverpool, Mousa Dembele and Jan Vertonghen are standard members Tottenham and Everton Lukaku and Mirallas. Benteke wears jersey Aston Villa, and finally Fellaini in Manchester United. Belgium has experienced a meteoric rise to Fifa rankings from 54th place two years ago, so that now occupies the sixth.
Worshiped Wilmots also claims that the foreign playing greatly contributed to it. “All of our players who play outside have progressed, and we in Belgium today and we are harvesting the fruits of that progress,” said Belgian coach. The truth is a lot of talent and maybe they will make a surprise who knows??

Desert foxes are better than many expected, but they also have serious drawbacks – they will prevail in Group H with Belgium, Russia and South Korea? Coach Vahid Halilhodžić moved away from the Algerians ultra defensive style they used to play and scrambled into attractive 4-3-3. Attacking trident Soudani-Feghouli-Slimani works great together. Team unity is also high.
None of the keeper list is not even close to the quality that is expected from the participants of the World Championship. Also tend to have problems with retention and transfer the ball in the middle of the field in qualifying were catastrophic in breaks. Algerians do not have a big name that the status of particular stood out from the rest – at least if you ask the Europeans. But the country is absolutely first name experienced captain Bougherra, stopper Qatar Lekhwiya who has a thankless task to keep under control recently ‘renovated’ team that is still getting used to the different demands of the game. Many public expects from Boughere but whether he will be able to do much in this group.
As I said Belgium could create great wonders, and a bit unhappy and if the slip of the first hurdle. Algeria has such a strong team that could make a lot, the only thing that can interfere and make the final haouse particular order.
