For the 2014 World Cup, FIFA changed the protocol for choosing the teams to be in the seeded pot of the draw. Instead of having nations which were champion on previously editions of the tournament, they opted by having the best ranked national teams plus Brazil (host) to open each group of the World Cup.
Due to this change, some surprises appeared, as Belgium, that will play against Russia, South Korea and Algeria for the 2 spots in the next phase of the World Cup. The Belgian are one of the new sensation for this competition and many people believe the Red Devils will surprise other traditional Natioal Teams.
However, despite the main Belgian are in the English Premiere League, specialists state the pressure of playing a World Cup is totally different and may be an unfavorable factor, once this will be the first time they will be playing at FIFA World Cup. Therefore, Belgium, represented by top player such as Courtois, Mignolet, Kompany, Vertonghen, Fellaini, Witsel, Hazard, De Bruyne, Lukaku and Benteke might tell us, after the tournament, what really matters during the World Cup: Talent or Experience?
Such a tough task for the Belgium Head Coach Marc Wilmots, former belgian national player.
Hazard (Chelsea-ENG): speed. That’s the word can best describe this player. The Chelsea’s winger is the main star in the Belgian offensive system. Surely that’s the best option the coach Wilmots bets for wining the matches. Main characteristics: speed, ball conduction and shooting.
Kompany (Manchester City-ENG): Kompany is the team captain and will use his influence and leadership to manage the Belgian players. Also, he’s responsible for organizing the defense. Main characteristics: speed, strength and heading.
Fellaini (Manchester United-ENG): he is probably one of the most experienced players in the Belgian squad. Although he is not having a sequence of matches for Manchester United, his technique and experience will contribute for the success during the World Cup. Even more, Fellaini is the kind of player every coach want: he can perform different functions in the field. Main characteristics: versatility and passing.
