Confirmed: Belgium line-up for Tunisia friendly – Chelsea man on bench

Lukaku Belgium

Belgium will be keen to get the better of Tunisia in Brussels tonight and head to the World Cup on a positive note.

Belgium will be looking to fly off to Brazil on the back of a victory over Tunisia tonight.

The Red Devils are considered by many football followers as the ‘dark horse’ of the 2014 World Cup finals and will be determined to maintain their good form ahead of the start of the gala tournament next week.

Manager Marc Wilmots has a squad replete with quality and talent, with world-class players in each and every department.

Eden Hazard is the Belgians’ star and following a season in which he was indisputably Chelsea’s best player, the 23-year-old winger will be keen on taking that form to Brazil.

Belgium will head into tonight’s match in Brussels on the back of a 2-0 victory over Sweden in a friendly international in Stockholm last week. Prior to that game, they had hammered Luxembourg 5-1.

However, that match was demoted from an official friendly to a practice game, as Wilmots had used seven substitutes instead of the stipulated six.

Tunisia will not be easy opponents, though, as under former Belgium coach Georges Leekens, the African team will be eager to put on a good show in Brussels. They have lost only twice in their last 12 matches and got the better of South Korea 1-0 in Seoul last week.

Here is how Belgium will line up against Tunisia tonight:

Belgium XI: Thibaut Courtois; Toby Alderweireld, Vincent Kompany, Daniel Van Buyten, Jan Vertonghen; Steven Defour, Mousa Dembele; Kevin Mirallas, Marouane Fellaini, Eden Hazard; Divock Origi

Subs: Sammy Bossut, Simon Mignolet, Thomas Vermaelen, Nicolas Lombaerts, Anthony Vanden Borre, Laurent Ciman, Axel Witsel, Kevin De Bruyne, Adnan Januzaj, Nacer Chadli, Romelu Lukaku, Dries Mertens
