After two straight wins, 4-0 over Saudi Arabia and 1-0 over Japan, Belgium prepare to host Portugal at the King Baudouin Stadium in Brussels, in what is going to be their first genuine test before going to the World Cup in Russia. With the likes of De Bruyne, Lukaku, Hazard, Mertens, Verthongen, and Alderweireld, De Rode Duivels are among the most probable candidates to win the most prestigious international tournament in the world, especially after demonstrating impressive displays during the qualifications. Nevertheless, A Seleção das Quinas will have their say in this game although they’ve failed to impress against Tunisia earlier this week, losing a two-goal lead only to finish the game with a draw. The return of Cristiano Ronaldo, who had an extended break will be a big boost for Fernando Santos’ team, who look to repeat the stunning performance from the EURO 2016 this summer, hoping to lift their first World Cup title.
Die Roten Teufel are desperate to end a 3-game losing streak against Portugal, who defeated them by two goals to one in friendly match two years ago.
With the World Cup around the corner, both coaches will have their best players at their disposal for the encounter. However, the absence of Radja Nainggolan is by far the strangest decision one coach made ahead of the big tournament.
