At the Ahmad bin Ali Stadium in Qatar, the 2nd World Cup 2022 matchup in Group F will occur on November 24 between Belgium and Canada.
It might be the last opportunity for many of Belgium’s “Golden Generation” members to win an important event. Still, for Canada competing in its first World Cup game in 36 years, it’s all about “confidence, not faith.”
Belgium vs. Canada Overview
There is a lot of pressure on Roberto Martinez, the coach of Belgium, to play well because his team lost both the Nations League and the Euro 2020 finals. After criticism for failing to succeed after France knocked Belgium from the Nations League, Martinez is looking for some magic on the field.
While Canada excelled in winning the CONCACAF qualifier final group, earning an automatic entry place for Qatar 2022.
The team’s midfielder, Jonathan Osorio, displays trust in his capacity to come up with surprises. Similarly, Canadian coach John Herdman, originally from England, enters every match with the attitude that everything is possible.

Players to Watch
Belgium: Kevin De Bruyne of Manchester City, who has 155 goal inclusion for only 224 Premier League games, would be a key player for Belgium. The magic is done when he passes the ball, and his rivals merely watch him like spectators. Michy Batshuayi, a striker for Fenerbahce, is superior to him in this regard. However, Romelu Lukaku will be sorely missed.
Canada: The youthful Canadian studs Alphonso Davies and Jonathan David are expected to help the Maple Leafs (Canada) win the game. Atiba Hutchinson, a midfielder for Besiktas and the team captain, wants to make a big impression as he makes his major championship debut nearly 20 years after his professional debut.
Head to Head
Canada has already matched up with Belgium, and they won. Belgian winger Youri Tielemans has contributed to four goals in the Premier League this year for Leicester City. Belgian forward Leandro Trossard plays for Brighton & Hove Albion and has assisted on nine Premier League goals.
Ike Ugbo, a Canadian forward, has contributed two goals for Troyes in Ligue 1 this year in five league starts. Tajon Buchanan, a Canadian winger who plays for Club Brugge in the Belgian Jupiler League, has one goal in five starts.
Belgium vs. Canada Prediction
Experts predict that Belgium will have a more substantial chance of defeating the young Canadian team because of their expertise and World Cup appearances. Therefore, our forecast is Canada 3–1 Belgium.
Courtois, Alderweireld, Vertonghen, Debast; Meunier, Tielemans, Witsel, Castagne; De Bruyne, Batshuayi, and E Hazard make up the Belgium XI (3-4-3) in that order.
Eustaquio, Buchanan, Adekugbe, Steven Vitoria, Johnston, Borjan, Laryea, K Miller, Hutchinson, David, and Larin make up the Canada XI (5-3-2).
