    Usually its quite good for teams to get a bit exposed & challenged in the group stage, because teams need to know what to fix & how to overcome difficulties when games dont go your way. Belgium didnt have that. If they also cruise past England it might cost them later in the Knock Outs when they face a difficult situation & dont know how to react.
    Besides that, they gonna play the B Team against England in the last group game, thats at least what i heard, which has been a sure recipe for disaster for all teams who tried that in the past (Say Hello to past Dutch Champagne Teams)
    Lets wait n see
    Germany didnt look convincing at all, but they are among the very few teams who have a history of being able to overcome larger problems during tournaments. They certainly dont look like a winner right now, but i would be careful to already count them out.

    It’s a shame a talented side like Belgium get a weak group like this. They could be a step behind when they meet teams in the round of 16 who have grinded out in their groups. England will be at least a good test before they meet the other competitive group survivors. Can’t think of a weaker group besides maybe the Spain Portugal Iran and Morocco group as a close second? I’d say Group A but quite honestly Russia Egypt and Uruguay aren’t impressive

    People saying they’re the worst teams in the tournament yet they thrashed them and that’s what you want. 5-2 is never a bad result. There are so many teams that still don’t look 100%, Brazil, Germany, Portugal, Spain, Uruguay and France. Only Croatia and Mexico have been good these past two games and Mexico will get found out by a side like Belgium, Mexico lack a player who can completely take the game and turn it around and I don’t see them as the team who can comeback from 1-0 or 2-0 after 1st half. I’m certain Brazil can grow more into this competition as Neymar steadily grows into it. Belgium, Brazil or France if they can improve, but they are getting results. Croatia is a possibility, they are solid all round and have one of the strongest midfields in the tournament. If Belgium can really do their part against England than I can see them at least going to the semi finals but if they end up struggling for a result I believe they will lose form, slow down and have a 1/4 exit.

      Germany won't go that reckless against those teams, neither Brasil or Belgium would go crazy mode against Germany. Only reason Germany had it complicated is because they werent able to score first in any of the matches against teams that park the bus and play counterattack. Now the onlt big team that I see going defensive against Germany is France.

    • The Furschlong
      The Furschlong 23 days ago +2

      true but that 2014 Brazil squad was some of the worst we have ever had, and we were missing a few key players in that game. This Brazil squad looks very well rounded. Gabriel Jesus seems to be struggling, but if he can shake the nerves it will be interesting. Switzerland is better than Sweden imo, Sweden seemed out of gas in the 2nd half and are slow. I would not count out Brazil yet, cause a lot of these small teams like Costa Rica have been playing very well against big teams as of recent.

      farbod niazi That's just plain stupid. In the round of 16, Kompany will be fit as will Vermaelen against England. Then they will have one of the best denfences of the WC. Believe me, Boyata is a back up and everybody knows he will immediately be replaced by one of these 2 if they get fit. And it's even more stupid to say Tunesia is on of the weakest teams in the WC too, they're placed 14th on the world ranking and held England back 1-1 till the 90th minute. England struggles to score, but Belgium makes 5 (could have been 8-9), why is Tunesia suddenly bad than? You obviously have no idea what you're talking about. Wait till Belgium rips England apart, we will speak again than.

      This FIFA and these referee think . They are clever. In fact . Sweeden was stronger team than Mexico . Everyone knew. This was designed to avoid the suspicions. Strict against Germany . Former champion

      The referees knew South Korea is a strong underrated team and purposely set up situations. A lion is hundred times stronge when injured or family cub is hurt etc,. FIFA used South Korea as a pawn
