Match Preview

Belgium takes on Costa Rica in their last World Cup warm-up game before they leave for Russia. Ahead of group games against England, Tunisia, and Panama, the Red Devils will aim to make their bow at this year's World Cup with all the momentum and confidence they can get. The tag of being the favorite among these lot Is justified considering they have not lost a single game since September 2016 while also boasting a hoard of world class players in their ranks.

Roberto Martinez men enter the upcoming friendly on the back of a 3-0 win over Egypt. Goals by Romelu Lukaku, Eden Hazard and Marouane Fellaini secured the victory and simultaneously gave the Belgians an idea about what to expect when they face Tunisia in their second Group G game at the World Cup.

Similarly, the Costa Rica test will aid them in their preparation against Panama who also qualified from the CONCACAF region. Interestingly, all the three other World Cup Group G members have already secured wins over Costa Rica and as a result, Belgium is expected to complete the quartet of victories in the impending clash. Till date, the 1-0 win the Red Devils celebrated in a friendly back 2002 is the only meeting between the two countries.

For Costa Rica, it will be now or never if aim at turning their fortunes around before taking on the likes of Brazil, Switzerland, and Serbia in the group stage at the World Cup. It's been more or less a lethargic showing on the part of Oscar Ramirez's men who have recorded two wins and five defeats in their last seven matches. As a result, it will take something more than the ordinary for them to abruptly end Belgium's 18-game winning streak.
