Belgium: Belgium’s golden generation has evolved to get them to the finals of the 2014 world cup. It will be interesting to watch the Belgium players who ply their trade in some of the best clubs of the world week in week out play at a major tournament. Placed in a relatively easy group consisting Algeria, South Korea and Russia, they must be planning for a longer stay in the Samba nation.
Algeria: They are expected to bow out of the tournament without a point but for Algerians the 2014 world cup is a tournament of hope and pride. At the 2010 event, they held a poor England side to a draw so they just might look to play spoilers for other team. They have a reputation of lacklustre performances at major finals after constant qualifications to these tournaments.
