Starting XI: Belgium v Algeria

Algeria will aim to restore African pride when they get their 2014 World Cup campaign underway against tournament dark horses Belgium June 17 in Belo Horizonte.

The Fennec Foxes booked their ticket to the showpiece in Brazil when they got the better of Burkina Faso in the World Cup play-off matches.

Guided by Vahid Halilhodzic, Algeria will be aiming to progress into the knockout stages for the first time in their history after having failed to do so in the 1982, 1986 and 2010 editions of the competition.

This is the strongest Algerian team heading over to the World Cup and they are confident in their chances of causing an upset when they come up against a Belgium side brimming with talent.

This star-studded side qualified for their 12th World Cup finals with a top spot finish in their Group A of the Euro zone qualifiers.

After coming close to glory with their semi-final finish in the 1986 edition, Marc Wilmots will be aiming to lead his men all the way this year.

Manchester City’s skipper Vincent Kompany, Tottenham midfielder Nacer Chadli, Chelsea ace Eden Hazard and danger man upfront Romelu Lukaku all form part of the team that have been tipped to cause a shock this year.

Belgium Starting XI: Courtois, Alderweireld, Van Buyten, Kompany, Vertonghen, Witsel, Dembele, De Bruyne, Hazard, Chadli, Lukaku

Algeria Starting XI: Mbolhi, Bougherra (c), Ghoulam, Halliche, Feghouli, Medjani, Bentaleb, Soudani, Taider, Mahrez, Mostefa
