World Cup 2018 Football Predictions Group G – Belgium

Belgium’s famous golden generation has so far flattered to deceive upon the international stage. Regardless of the undoubted potential presently available within Roberto Martinez’ first-team ranks, this is a side that must prove their worth in the wake of the 2018 World Cup.

Will Eden Hazard and co. successfully produce the goods in Russia this summer, scoring goal upon goal with the utmost panache and flamboyance? Or is this squad of players simply unable to satisfy the rising expectations that currently surround the Belgian national team? We shall have to wait and see…


Will Belgium win the 2018 World Cup?

Whilst Belgium are certainly capable of taking the global stage by storm and claiming World Cup glory throughout the summer, many football onlookers fail to envisage a successful tournament for Roberto Martinez’ side.

World Cup betting tips expect Belgium to fall short among the semi-finals of the competition, proving their worth for much of the opening proceedings, yet ultimately unable to showcase the truest range of their talents right when it matters most.


Who will be Belgium’s star man at the World Cup?

Roberto Martinez has numerous options at his disposal whilst aiming to achieve a successful 2018 World Cup campaign for Belgium. Chelsea’s Eden Hazard stands out immediately as one of the most highly coveted individuals available to the former Wigan Athletic and Everton boss.

Napoli’s Dries Mertens is another impressive name that promises to deliver this summer, as does Toby Alderweireld of Tottenham Hotspur if he can shake off his recent injury concerns, as well as Manchester United’s current in-form front-man – Romelu Lukaku.

That said, perhaps Manchester City’s Kevin de Bruyne is the name we should all be watching in Russia. The mercurial midfielder has been in absolutely sublime form at the Etihad this season, proving one of the most effective players across the entire English top-flight.

Whilst the 26-year-old play-maker certainly seems to be enjoying life under Pep Guardiola at Manchester City, expect de Bruyne to once again replicate his current form at the 2018 World Cup in Russia. World Cup betting tips could well see the Belgian become the leading assist taker at this summer’s upcoming competition.


What are Belgium’s Group G fixtures?

Panama – Belgium begin their opening Group G encounters with a truly straightforward tie. If Martinez’ team fail to produce the goods against their Central American opposition in Russia this summer, they can effectively kiss their chances of winning the entire tournament goodbye.

Tunisia – Group G’s African representatives could potentially upset Belgium in their second group-stage fixture. Whilst the Europeans possess a far more experienced and dynamic outfit on paper, perhaps Tunisia are capable of sealing a draw with all things fairly considered.

England – The defining fixture among Group G could be served up last. England know all about Belgium’s most effective operatives from their time spent plying their trade among the Premier League, yet even with this in mind, Belgium possess all the necessary tools to disrupt England’s inevitable hype-wagon at the 2018 World Cup.


Belgium’s World Cup Tips and Predictions

Although this remains a rather impressive squad of players to choose from, Belgium arguably lack the grit and determination to really see them all the way through to the final. Roberto Martinez will be keen to improve upon Belgium’s most recent World Cup showing back in 2014, yet the task on his hands remains far easier said than done.

Belgium will be looking to prove a few doubters wrong after losing their place at Euro 2016 courtesy of an inspired Welsh outfit, but even without the likes of Gareth Bale and Hal Robson-Kanu to think about this summer, Belgium could once again struggle in the face of their hard-nosed World Cup opposition. In other words, Belgium are likely to prove all style and no substance once again this summer.
