Belgium Vs Panama world cup 2018 Live Stream
Group G of the 2018 FIFA World Cup will take place from 18 to 28 June 2018. The group consists of Belgium, Panama, Tunisia, and England. The top two teams will advance to the round of 16.
Belgium’s golden generation. Last chance at glory? Probably. Hopes died in the quarterfinals of the past two major tournaments.
If everything is working properly, the third-ranked Red Devils could win the whole darn thing. The roster rocks: Chelsea’s Eden Hazard and Thibaut Courtois, Manchester City’s Vincent Kompany (should he recover in time from a groin injury) and Kevin De Bruyne, Manchester United’s Romelu Lukaku and Napoli’s Dries Mertens.
The ratio of world-class talent to population (just 11.4 million) is mind-blowing.
They’ll begin the foursome as favorites, but in a top-heavy group, the England clash on the final day of the first round is likely to decide first place and a more favorable pairing in the round of 16.
Belgium’s coach might look familiar to the U.S. audience: Spain’s Roberto Martinez is a former ESPN studio analyst for multiple World Cups and European Championships. He guided Everton for three years before accepting his first national team gig in August 2016.
After losing to Spain in his debut, Martinez oversaw a 9-0-1 record and 43-6 scoring margin in World Cup qualifying.
