Quarter final preview Belgium vs Brazil through the eyes of a Belgian

in #sports2 years ago

Let me start by saying that we Belgians love the underdog position. It has always been like that. We can’t handle the pressure when we are the favorites but in the underdog position we play our best games.
We will need to be on top of our game against Brazil if we want to beat the best team in the world.
But let’s talk ratio and numbers:
We’re the only team left that has won all of the 4 games at the World Cup.
We scored 12 goals, that makes us the best scoring team at the World Cup.
We’ve conceived 4 goals. Our goal difference is +8 that’s the best result of all the teams left in the tournament.
Our top striker Lukaku has scored 4 goals that’s 2 more than Neymar.

Let’s compare some of the players of both teams.
Who would you pick?
Courtois or Allison?
Kompany or Thiago silva?
De Bruyne or Paulinho?
Hazard or Neymar?
Lukaku or Jesus?
Coutinho or Mertens?
I think that would be a tough call.

I hope that this doesn't make us the favorite because then we will be lost, that’s for sure …

Looking forward to Friday
