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.
Russia: Russia comes into the World Cup finals riding high a nine game unbeaten run and have a found a new lease of life under master tactician Fabio Capello. The Russian team failed to qualify for the 2010 event in Africa and Coach Fabio Capello too had a nightmare with England. Hence for both of them, this tournament provides an added incentive to do well.
