Earlier, Morocco and Croatia battled to a scoreless draw, Japan shocked Germany 2-1 in the upset of the day, and Spain set a new team record for goals scored in a single World Cup match with a 7-0 dismantling of Costa Rica.
A veteran Belgium roster that finished third in the 2018 World Cup looks to hold off a Canada squad full of top MLS talent. Belgium is slightly favored (-200 on FOX Bet) to win and will be led by Manchester City midfielder Kevin De Bruyne, who was a key part of the team’s run four years ago.
Canada, meanwhile, is still searching for its first World Cup win in its second appearance ever and first since 1986, entering 0-3-0 all-time. Bayern Munich star Alphonso Davies is one of the biggest names on the Canada roster, being named to the squad despite dealing with a hamstring injury.

Canada looking to make history
Canada is not only searching for its first World Cup win or draw but also its first World Cup goal. The Canadians are also hoping a strong showing in Qatar can jump-start passion for soccer back home.
‘O Canada’ at the World Cup!
The Belgian and Canadian national teams sang their national anthems before the game, marking the first time ‘O Canada’ has been played at the World Cup since 1986.
10′: Belgium gets the penalty save!
Davies was awarded a penalty kick after a video review found that Belgium committed a handball penalty in the box. But Belgium goalkeeper Thibaut Courtois has been here before, and showed his experience with full-extension save to keep Canada still looking for its first-ever goal in the World Cup.
