Marc Wilmots is the most colorful Head Coach at this Mondial. The politician who was a Tractor operator while he was already a soccer player and who quit Belgian Senate saying there’s not enough work – who is called a “Combatant Pig” in his own country and who unites both French speaking and Flemish citizens of his country – now at the head of one of the most talented teams in Mondial.
Goalkeepers: Thibaut Courtois (Atletico Madrid, on loan from Chelsea), Simon Mignolet (Liverpool), Sammy Bossut (Zulte Waregem).
Defenders: Toby Alderweireld (Atlético Madrid), Laurent Ciman (Standard Liege), Vincent Kompany (Manchester City), Nicolas Lombaerts (Zenit), Daniel Van Buyten (Bayern Munich), Anthony Vanden Borre (Anderlecht), Thomas Vermaelen (Arsenal), Jan Vertonghen (Tottenham).
Midfielders: Nacer Chadli (Tottenham), Steven Defour (Porto), Moussa Dembélé (Tottenham), Marouane Fellaini (Manchester United), Axel Witsel (Zenit).
Forwards: Kevin De Bruyne (Wolfsburg), Eden Hazard (Chelsea), Adnan Januzaj (Manchester United), Romelu Lukaku (Everton), Dries Mertens (Napoli), Kevin Mirallas (Everton), Divock Origi (Lille).
With squad like the one above and those in bold letters to be paid a special attention – anything less then the first place in a group will be a failure and Wilmots is not a man of failures.
Algerians will have a formidable task protecting their goal today.
