The 15th game of the FIFA World Cup 2014 is going to be held between Belgium vs Algeria. Many sides wanted to be in Group H because that would have given them an opportunity to start late in the event. This is probably the most well balanced group in the competition.
Belgium happens to be the one that took part in most numbers (11) of World Cups. Belgium has numerous top players who can make a difference even against the toughest sides in the world. Solid midfield, top quality centre-backs and strong attack – this team has all the options to reach the semi-finals at least.
Algeria is probably the one which is most habituated with similar weather conditions in Brazil. This is the Fourth World Cup for Algeria. It failed to score any goal in the 2010 World Cup but was able to have a draw against England. Algeria has moved to the top as the highest ranked African team.
