Belgium, The Dark Horses

Belgium are packed with talented players and their recent rise to international prominence has seen them being tipped as the dark horse for the upcoming 2014 FIFA World Cup in Brazil.

They enjoyed an impressive run in the world cup qualifying stage, which saw them top their group unbeaten.

The team boasts competitive players in every department, who are first team regulars at their club sides.

Their key players include Atletico Madrid's goalkeeper Thibaut Courtois who played a pivotal role in Atletico's La Liga triumph. Manchester City and Belgium captain Vincent Kompany was rock solid for the English Premier League champions Manchester City.

They also have Chelsea’s PFA young player of the year Eden Hazard and Everton's Striker Romelu Lukaku who bagged 15 league goals for the toffees the past season.

On paper Belgium is the strongest team in group H, where they will face South Korea, Russia and Algeria. Led by coach Marc Wilmots, they will be hoping to make an impact come June-July 2014.

Belgium last featured at a world cup in 2002 and their best position was fourth place in 1986.
