Belgium, for now, is the side which looks to be the best placed to enter the Round of 16 from Group F.

Ahead of their respective second games in the FIFA World Cup in Qatar, Belgium is undoubtedly the happiest side among all the Group F teams.

The side led by Eden Hazard on Thursday got the better of Canada in a closely fought fixture (1-0). That means, it only needs another win to seal its passage into the round of 16 stage.

A defeat for Canada on Sunday against Croatia will spell elimination for Les Rouges. A win or a point could keep its qualification hopes alive.

Morocco and Croatia, who shared spoils in their first fixture, will be desperately looking for a win as well to hold an advantage over the other.

A Morocco win in Sunday’s first game, followed by a Canada victory in the second will keep all four teams in contention for qualification heading into the final group day fixtures.
