That's definitely into the Gulf. Dejan Lovren at Wembley, eat your heart out! 20:23 62 mins: Belgium sub - Trossard for Hazard Roberto Martinez is readying Brighton's Leandro Trossard to come on as an attacking reinforcement in the place of Madrid's Eden Hazard.  A decent night for the former Chelsea man   20:21 60 mins - Still very much in Canada's half Seems like a sensible move by John Herdman to bring on Larin with a lack of cutting edge for Canada. They very much still have possession on their terms, all they need is to turn it into something more.  20:20 Double switch for The Maple Leafs Double switch for Canada. OFF: Hoilett & Hutchinson ON: Larin & Kone 20:18 56 mins - Onana booked Nothing overly tangible occurring from either side in terms of attacking chances.  Though Canada do still have much of the ball and are nullifying the leaders thus far. Onana gets booked and now both of Belgium's subbed.  20:14 53 mins - Meunier booked The second half sub gets booked for an elbow in contesting with Junior Hoilett.  20:13 52 mins - Canada pinning them back Canada again the aggressors despite Martinez's tactical changes.  Belgium find themselves pinned in their own half once again - this second half is panning out similarly to most of the first.    20:10 48 mins - Chance for Canada! David gets his head on the cross but is unable to get his effort on target!  The Lille striker has yet to show his lethal capabilities in this game. Remember, Canada do have all-time scorer Cyle Larin sitting on the bench.  20:07 HT Changes Thomas Meunier and Amadou Onana come on for Youri Tielemans and Yannick Carrasco. Defensive changes from Martinez make sense with the lead and dominance Canada showed throughout the first half. 20:04 Former Chelsea and Celtic man Craig Burley not happy The ESPN FC pundit is, like many Canadians, outraged at the non-calls going against Canada during the first half. Utterly ridiculous, particularly in the days of VAR that such an obvious pen wasn’t awarded to Canada when Hazard passed the ball back in his own box, thus playing everyone onside. Plus a clear foul. WTF was VAR watching ????‍♂️— Craig Burley (@craigburley) November 23, 2022 20:00 HT Stats Shots: BEL 4-14 CAN Shots on target: BEL 2-2 CAN Possession: BEL 56% - 44% CAN Fouls: BEL 3-9 CAN Corners: BEL 1-2 CAN Saves: BEL 2-1 CAN   19:54 Good omen Belgium have not lost in their previous 17 World Cup games when scoring first.  Can Canada change it? 19:52 HALF TIME: BELGIUM 1-0 CANADA Scarcely believable that Belgium lead at the break, but here we are.  Batshuayi's goal well and truly against the run of the play but if Canada can produce a similar level, they are more than capable of taking all three points from the second 45. 19:49 47 mins - Big chance! Buchanan puts wide a laser of a cross! It should've been 1-1.  A diving effort on goal goes wide right and he cannot believe it. That was what Canada needed. 19:48 5 mins of stoppage time 19:47 46 mins - So harsh on Canada Cruel, cruel stuff. Though this is what happens when you fail to take your chances.  Canada could realistically have had three penalties and scored at least that amount. Though the prolificacy of Belgium and Batshuayi shines through before the break. 19:45 43 mins - GOAL BELGIUM 1-0 Canada forced back but Belgium are unable to find any continuity, even when in the opposition half. Much will be made of Belgium's lackluster first half, but praise has to be given. And out of nothing! The Red Devils lead, Batshuayi lashes in a beautiful volley. How cruel that is on Canada. 19:40 39 mins - No penalty! Play continues, the referee was not asked to go to the monitor. It looked like a 50/50 call, would've have been nice to see the ref head over to the screen. Belgium start with the ball again, can they get anything going before the break? 19:39 38 mins - VAR check Absorbing encounter in front of us in Al Rayyan. Largely due to the electric performance of the Canadians.  The center of the park is largely blocked up by Canada who often have 8 players inside the Belgium half.  Is that a pen?! Laryea goes down under a Witsel challenge inside the area. The referee has waved it off. 19:35 34 mins - Very little going on for Belgium Canada's fan are rapturous inside the stadium. While they haven't scored they continue to dominate possession.  Belgium haven't created much at all, Borjan is yet to be particularly troubled. Quite incredible this start from a team at its first World Cup in a generation. If you didn't know any better you would think Canada were the third-placed team in 2018.  19:32 32 mins - Canada continues creating! Big chance for Canada to find that final pass after a lovely move.  Another wave of attack comes forward before Belgium venomously hoof it out reminiscent of an Asmir Begovic goal kick at a windy Stoke!  Johnston fires a low strike at Courtois, who parries away. Buchanan providing a problem with a fearless and pacey approach.   Really lively encounter this. Courtois scoops up a deflected shot as David spurns a great chance to pass to Laryea who would've had a clean one-on-one.  Plenty going on, I'm getting sore fingers!  19:28 27 mins - Canada shoot wide Great run and link up play by Davies before finding Hutchinson who wildly shot wide.  The 39-year-old, yes 39. Couldn't deliver what the move deserved.    19:26 26 mins - Belgium advancing forward De Bruyne finds space again, feeding Hazard. The play amounts to nothing tangible, despite the Real Madrid man potentially having the opportunity to go down in the box.  Would've been an interesting call there. Certainly more space coming for Belgium. 19:24 23 mins - Batshuayi strike blocked! Belgium now starting to take a bit more control of proceedings. Hazard and De Bruyne particularly starting to see a little more of the ball. We're now in a more even encounter, but the lingering concern for Canada has to be if Belgium can break through the press.  If so, several opportunities like De Bruyne's may present themselves. And there it is!  Chance for Batshuayi as Hazard delicately finds Tielemans before the striker sent it over the bar, via a deflection 19:19 19 mins - Huge break for Canada! Reading's Hoilett with a really nice run, jinking insider Alderweireld but dragging his shot wide.  It's been a dominant showing by Canada thus far, very impressive they've been able to keep up this intensity since the Davies miss.  Belgium finally break and De Bruyne somehow misses Tielemans who is wide open for a one-on-one chance. I'm not sure that is KDB out there...he would never fail to miss such a simple pass! Huge let off for Canada.  19:15 14 mins - Belgium cannot get out! Canada keep coming, Belgium really are struggling to string any possession together.  There's been no sight of Eden Hazard and his fellow Belgian front men since the first minute.  Canada are pressing Belgium very high here, eight Canadian players currently sit inside the Belgian half! 19:13 12 mins - Still 0-0, how do Canada respond? That is a seismic moment, not only in the history of Canadian soccer but in the context of this game.  With the rabid mostly-Canadian crowd ready to erupt, they've become slightly hushed, although reassuring chants still softly ring around. Laryea drags a speculative shot well wide, does this give Belgium a lift? They've been very quiet thus far! 19:11 10 mins - He misses! Davies has it saved! Brilliant from Courtois, down to his right. David puts the follow up over the bar, and that's a huge moment in this game.  19:09 Penalty Canada! Carrasco's arm in an unnatural position and Canada have a penalty! Alphonso Davies to step up   19:09 8 mins - VAR check! Canada earn their first corner of the game. Decent chance for David after a great cross in for Buchanan, who scuffed his shot.  Fortunately, a corner for Canada. Buchanan gets a volley away and Courtois manages to get his bearings before a save is made.  Hang on, there;s a stoppage in play here! VAR check incoming for the deflection off Carrasco in the box. 19:06 5mins - Canada control The ball is firmly stuck within the Canadian half. After a very shaky lapse early, the North Americans have settled in well.  Though they must be wary, at times when Belgium have successfully closed down, they have struggled to keep possession cleanly. 19:03 1min - Early Belgium strike! Michy Batshuayi with an early shot at goal, straight into the palms of the keeper.  Lack of experience hurt Canada there, giving away possession far too easily.  Though the Maple Leafs take it straight up the other end of the pitch, forcing Belgium to block a shot from inside the box.  Both teams really going at it, Canada showing some fortitude here.  19:01 And we're off! Really good feeling about this one...the crowd right up for this, chants of 'Canada' ring around the stadium  19:00 Tielemans at RW? The official lineups shown by FIFA and on the Fox broadcast show the Leicester midfielder starting out on the wide flank, opposite Eden Hazard. It will be interesting to see if that does indeed play out.  18:57 National anthems We begin with the national anthem of Belgium, soon followed by 'O Canada.' Cheers go around the stadium following Belgium's anthem but they are far louder for the Canadian national anthem.  Both the substitutes and players belt out 'O Canada' in what looks to be a very spirited and unified display.  If their hearty signing is anything to go by, this'll be some encounter.   18:52 Less than 10 till kick off! An opportunity awaits to top the group for either team if they are able to win this Group F encounter. 18:45 Some of the more unusual operators... Have a look at this bunch...certainly one way to get your creative juices going.  18:36 Fans ready themselves Canada fans may look to have their counterparts outnumbered, but that hasn't stopped one Belgian fan stealing the spotlight with eye-catching face paint.  18:31 Canada's top scorer on the bench! Cyle Larin may be Canada's all-time leading goal scorer and the CONCACAF top scorer, but that's not enough to get him on the park initially.  Look for him to be a super sub.  18:27 Belgium Formation No Lukaku as expected, so Batshuayi does indeed start up top for the Red Devils.  Looking likely that Belgium will also go with a 3-4-3. Naturally, Kevin De Bruyne will be the creative force.  Eden Hazard and Yannick Carrasco seem most suited to flank the big Belgian striker. 18:24 Canada Formation Seems as if Canada will line up in a 3-4-3, with Davies as a LW, with Brugge winger Tajon Buchanan on the other side as they support star Lille striker, Jonathan David.  Reading flier Junior Hoillett is also set to start as a RM.  18:21 Alphonso Davies Davies does in fact start for Canada in what is a huge boost for the Maple Leafs. Davies will be central to what happens from an attacking standpoint but he will need to have some defensive responsibility when needed. 18:10 Kit action Pt 2 Naturally, the Canadians will be decked out in their white and red strip.  There are plenty of Canadian fans who have created a sea of red in the crowd, however.

The Balkan nation had two great chances to go ahead before the break. A goal-line clearance was also needed by Morocco in the second-half to secure a point.  Ultimately it is a great point for both Canada and Belgium who could take a strong grip on Group F with +3 points today. 16:10 Last chance saloon for the Belgians? While Belgium is known to be a footballing hotbed, its biggest stars are in their prime or edging toward the end. Perhaps 2022 is their best chance to win the World Cup for some time. Belgium's 'golden generation' will have one final gamble in Qatar Belgium's so-called 'golden generation' should have achieved so much more, could have achieved so much more, but ultimately failed when it mattered most. Mail Online 16:02 Last time they met... Canada and Belgium have only ever played each other once in the history of football.  The two have never played in a competitive match. Their sole meeting was a friendly in June of 1989 where Belgium triumphed 2-0.   15:55 No Rom to move Belgium will be hamstrung at the top of their attack with Inter Milan striker Romelu Lukaku reportedly sidelined for the first two Belgium group games.  Without Lukaku, Belgium may turn to former Chelsea and Crystal Palace man Michy Batshuayi as the closest like-to-like replacement.   Romelu Lukaku 'will miss Belgium's first two World Cup games' Belgium will reportedly be without Romelu Lukaku for the first two games of the Qatar World Cup after the Inter Milan striker failed to recover from a thigh injury.
