Belgium v Canada LIVE: Romelu Lukaku missing through injury but Kevin De Bruyne starts as Englishman John Herdman includes Jonathan David for the Maple Leafs

    Belgium will take on Canada in their opening game of the 2022 Qatar World Cup tonight as Roberto Martinez’s Red Devils look to go one better than four years ago.

    Belgium finished third at the 2018 World Cup, beating England in the third place play-off after missing out on the final to eventual champions France.

    They still have a squad full of quality but their moniker of the Golden Generation has slipped in recent years.

    But Kevin De Bruyne will be looking to inspire his side and lead them to the final this winter.

    Meanwhile, Canada will be making their first World Cup appearance since 1986.

    The Maple Leafs are coached by England’s John Herdman and have an exciting squad which will be eager to upset the odds in Group F.
