Belgium vs Canada confirmed squads: team news ahead of today’s world cup

Belgium plays Canada in the Group F clash of the World Cup.

Belgium are the clear favorites to advance as group winners, while Canada are underdogs in their first World Cup appearance since 1986, with Croatia and Morocco also in Group F.

John Herdman’s side did a great job in qualifying alongside the US and Mexico, but star Alphonso Davies is injured in the country’s biggest game in a generation.

Belgium has its own fitness issues and Romelu Lukaku has his doubts as the nation’s golden generation looks to go a step further than a semi-final defeat to France in 2018.

Here’s everything you need to know about the clash in Group F.

When is Belgium vs Canada?

The match will kick off at 19:00 GMT on Wednesday 23 November at the Ahmad Bin Ali Stadium.

What TV channel is it on and how can I watch it online?

It will be shown live on BBC One from 6.30pm and also online on BBC iPlayer.

What was the news from the band?

Romelu Lukaku is a major problem for Belgium after an injury-ridden season for Inter Milan, leaving Roberto Martinez to look for other attacking options. Doubts are also raised by Thorgan Hazard.

Canada will be without star player Alphonso Davies, which is a huge blow ahead of their biggest game in a generation. The Bayern Munich left-back and winger suffered a hamstring injury and was unable to recover in time.

Confirmed lineups

Belgium: Courtois, Vertonghen, Alderweireld, Dendoncker, Castagne, Witsel, Tielemans, Carrasco, De Bruyne, E Hazard, Batshuayi

Canada: Borjan, Laryea, Miller, Vitoria, Johnston, Davies, Eustaquio, Hutchinson, Buchanan, Hoilett, David


Belgium: 4/7

Draw: 7/2

Canada: 27.05


It would be a pity, especially for Canada, if neither side were at full strength. However, Belgium has a lot of depth and with a player like Kevin De Bruyne, they should have too much quality. Belgium 3-1 Canada
