Roberto Martinez has come under pressure from Belgium supporters following a string of poor performances at major tournaments.

They qualified easily during UEFA qualifying, averaging over three goals per game.

However, they often underperform when it matters at such events, as evidenced by their defeat against Italy in last summer’s European Championships and their elimination to France in the 2018 UEFA Nations League.

Moreover, they possess enough talent in the future to make them one of the favourites for Euro 2020.

Canada’s young team will use the Gold Cup as a free hit in their preparation for the 2026 World Cup—which they will host—on home soil.

The big names in the squad all come in attack but building a solid defense has been crucial to Canada’s improvement over the past four-year cycle. This is because they kept seven clean sheets during the final stage of CONCACAF qualifying, not conceding more than once in any game.

However, there is cause for concern about Canada’s away form: they won just two of their seven matches on the road in qualifying. They lost away to Honduras in their last competitive fixture in the CONCACAF Nations League.

Belgium Team News

Given Lukaku’s fitness issues, Batshuayi will likely start in this opening match. However, Openda and Lois are also in contention for a start. Belgium was one of the best performers at Euro 2020, and Thorgan Hazard has struggled with injuries over the last year; however, Carrasco or Castagne could take his place at left wing-back.

Canada Team News

Captain Atiba Hutchinson should make his 100th appearance for Canada in the team’s second group stage game against Costa Rica, but star player Alphonso Davies is doubtful with a hamstring injury. This is a huge blow to manager John Herdman, as Davies can play multiple positions, including full back, wing back, on the wing or as a number 10.
