Belgium World Cup favourites as semi-finals near

After four weeks and 60 matches, the World Cup is down to the final four.

It’s an interesting mix of sides, with the might of France and England alongside the smaller Belgian and Croatian teams.

But despite their size, Belgium are heading into the semi-finals as tournament favourites and with good reason. 

The current team has been dubbed the golden generation and it’s not hard to see why, with Kevin de Bruyne and Eden Hazard leading an extremely talented lineup to their first World Cup semi-final in 32 years. 

The Belgians found themselves on the tougher side of the draw, battling past Japan and Brazil to book a date with a talented French side that many listed as pre-tournament favourites. 

Belgium should prove too good, but it will likely be a great match. 

On the other side of the draw, England are full of confidence and will be fresh heading into their semi-final with Croatia.

Led by Harry Kane, this side has been lucky enough to avoid most of the big teams but they have done well to beat every team in front of them and give themselves a chance to go all the way. 

I’m tipping a Belgium-England final, but as we’ve seen throughout the tournament upsets do happen and anyone can beat anyone. 

  • Wolves chance to refresh

The NPL takes a break this weekend and it will provide the side with a chance to refresh after what was a disappointing result on Saturday night.

We had multiple golden opportunities to score and we didn’t take our chances. With four games to go, we’re still in the finals hunt and we’re looking forward to returning after the bye and hunting results.
