Manchester City playmaker, Kevin De Bruyne has predicted how the outcome of Belgium’s 2022 World Cup campaign will go.
With regard to Belgium’s prospects of winning the World Cup, top player Kevin De Bruyne of Belgium has made a prediction.
The City and the majority of the nation’s golden generation are reaching the end of their prime years.
Belgium’s window is gradually narrowing as other nations get stronger as a result of their influx of fresh talent.
Naija News recalls the 2018 World Cup edition in Russia, De Bruyne and Belgium advanced to the semifinals, and there was optimism that they would try to win Euro 2020, but they were unsuccessful in their endeavour.
The squad from Belgium, which is ranked second by FIFA, displayed troubling symptoms of deterioration against Canada in their World Cup debut.
According to Eurosport, the Canadians’ vigour and aggression were too much for the Red Devils to handle.
According to the Guardian, the Manchester City player made a humorous but accurate forecast regarding Belgium’s prospects at the World Cup.
“No chance, we’re too old.
“I think our chance was 2018. We have a good team, but it is ageing. We lost some key players. We have some good new players coming, but they are not at the level other players were in 2018. I see us more as outsiders.” he stated.
