Belgium vs Romania

The Belgium national team is seeking to win to compensate for the harsh defeat it suffered against Slovakia, with a clean goal, in the opening of its group matches, especially since in the event of a loss, the “Red Devils” may lose any hope of occupying the first two places in the group, not to mention that their hopes of qualifying among the best. 4 teams in third place will be minimal.

While the Romanian national team aims to secure early qualification to the final 16 by collecting three points today, especially since it achieved a major victory over Ukraine by three clean goals in the first round.

The Red Devils team was subjected to a sharp attack by the fans and the media in Belgium, especially since hopes were pinned on experienced elements in the team’s ranks, such as Kevin De Bruyne, the English Manchester City star, and top scorer Romelu Lukaku, the English Chelsea player who spent last season on loan to Roma, the Italian club, and Leandro Trossard, the striker.

On the other hand, the Romanian national team, led by its coach Eduard Iordanescu, is in high spirits, especially after its victory in the first match against Ukraine, 3-0, last Monday, and hopes to win today in order to secure early qualification to the next league.

The Romanian national team has more than one chance to qualify, as it has two options: a win or a draw, as a victory today gives it a place in the round of 16 directly, while a draw will not harm it before its third match in the group stage against the Slovak national team, next Wednesday.

The Romanian national team has many distinguished players, led by defender Dragosin, the English player for Tottenham Hotspur, and winger Denis Mann, who shone in the Ukraine match and was one of the reasons for the victory. Giannis Hagi, the son of the legend Georgi Hagi, is also on the list.
