Belgium will hope to continue their winning run when they play Morocco in the FIFA World Cup at the Al Thumama Stadium on Sunday.
Roberto Martinez’s men picked up a hard-fought win against Canada in their tournament opener despite being far from their best. An early penalty save by Thibaut Courtois and Michy Batshuayi’s 44th-minute goal sealed the three points. Kevin De Bruyne and co. will likely need to shift up the gears against Morocco to secure their place in the knockouts.

Morocco, meanwhile, showed that they are a tough nut to crack against Croatia as they held the 2018 World Cup runners-up to a goalless draw. They are again expected to make Belgium fight to get the points and if they can hit them on the counter, it will be a historic night for Walid Regragui’s men.
