Belgium

Tipped by many to be the dark horse of Brazil 2014, Belgium could be the surprise package of the World Cup. Their manager, Marc Wilmots has the enviable job of selecting the squad which boasts many talents, including ten plying their trade in the Premier League.

Belgium topped their qualifying table – without losing a game – and conceded only four goals reaching the Finals for the first time since 2002. They will have a hard task attempting to eclipse the achievements of their 1986 team who managed to finish fourth in Mexico, but they will surely have no better opportunity than now. With a squad that could consist of: Romelu Lukaku, Mousa Dembele, Eden Hazard, Kevin de Bruyne, Marouane Fellaini, Vincent Kompany, Jan Vertonghen, Thomas Vermaelen, Dries Mertens, Axel Witsel, Simon Mignolet and Kevin Mirallas they have a team that could definitely hurt any squad. The only thing that might hurt Belgium’s chances is the fact that some of their players are not getting first team football right now. Kevin De Bruyne has faded from Jose Mourinho’s plans after a strong start to his Chelsea career and Thomas Vermaelen hardly gets a game in Arsene Wenger’s Arsenal. For Belgium to be in with a chance of the trophy all their players need to be playing regular football but they should still easily qualify from their group, which holds Russia, South Korea and Algeria. They are currently ranked 11th in the FIFA World Rankings – that’s two higher than England – and they are definitely there by merit, not by luck. Belgium are definitely worth a punt this year and they are 14/1 on bet365 to lift the trophy in Brazil. With players such as Lukaku, Hazard and Dembele capable of changing a game in an instant there is every possibility that they could go all the way. Get all the latest odds for the World Cup here.
