The Belgians come into this Belgium vs Egypt match in the second place in the FIFA Ranking. The team coached by Spain’s Roberto Martinez has qualified for the Qatar 2022 World Cup as the first of its group. In their most recent match against the Netherlands in the Nations League, the Red Devils lost 1-0 with a goal by Virgil van Dijk in the 73rd minute.
This team counts on Kevin De Bruyne, Manchester City midfielder, and Thibaut Courtois, Real Madrid goalkeeper, as their big names from whom much is expected in the friendly and in the games to come.
Possible lineup: Thibaut Courtois, Wout Faes, Toby Alderweireld, Zeno Debast, Timothy Castagne, Youri Tielemans, Axel Witsel, Yannick Carrasco, Kevin De Bruyne, Eden Hazard, Michy Batshuayi.
The Egyptians come into this friendly game disappointed after missing out on the World Cup. The team led by striker Mohamed Salah has won its last two matches against Niger and Liberia, the latter with an impressive score of 3-0 and fantastic goals from Omar Marmoush, Mohamed Monem and Ahmed Hassan.
The squad coached by Rui Vitoria, who had not previously coached any national team, is ranked 39th in the FIFA Ranking and will test its level against a team of top players in this Belgium vs Egypt match.
Possible lineup: Mohamed El Shenawy, Ali Gaber, Ahmed Hegazi, Mahmoud Alaa, Mohamed Hamdi, Emam Ashour, Mohamed Elneny, Mahmoud Hamada, Mohamed Salah, Mostafa Mohamed, Mahmoud Trezeguet.
For this Belgium vs Egypt match, which will sure be a high level game, we believe that the winner will be the European team. The skills and pace of stars such as Kevin De Bruyne, Eden Hazard and the security and experience of Thibaut Courtois will put the pharaohs team and Salah in big trouble.
Prediction: Belgium win 2-1.
