Belgium: Courtois, Alderweireld, Van Buyten, Kompany, Vertonghen, Witsel, Dembele, De Bruyne, Hazard, Chadli, Lukaku

Belgium get their World Cup campaign underway as the dark horse in the eyes of many fans to win the competition in Brazil.

The Belgians have talent throughout their team. Leadership is provided at the back through Manchester City captain Vincent Kompany while Chelsea star Eden Hazard is rated as one of the best players in the world.

There is further Chelsea interest up front in the form of Romelu Lukaku who has previously suggested that he’s using the tournament as a shopping window ahead of the summer transfer market. Thibaut Courtois also has a job to do in goal.

Algeria are right up against it as not many will give them a chance in this game.

Tottenham Hotspur midfielder Nabil Bentaleb is one of Algeria’s more recognisable players and he was fortunate to get plenty of first team games under his belt when Tim Sherwood was in charge at White Hart Lane.
