    Wales will try to hit Belgium on the counter and they're well suited for it, but I don't like their central defense much and they're likely to have big problems.

    Interesting match. Belgium the obvious favorites but Wales has some mojo going right now and they did already beat them in qualifying (and drew them in the other match).

    Cheering for Wales but I like them both.

    From What I saw, Belgium kind of looked like they were starting to click more last game, let§s see if they can confirm it

    Really comes down to the Belgian mentality and execution level. Wales is looking to counter and get 3-4 excellent opportunities. Belgium needs to press and attack and not allow Wales to set up. Wales had been able to create difficulties for Belgium in the last few matches.

    I think Wales' run ends here. Belgium has looked damn near unstoppable since that opening blip against Italy.

    3-1 Belgium. They will score early causing Wales to open up

    I think this game will be close . I hope Belgium comes out and tries to be fancy . Bale only needs 1 sniff to score . I like Wales 2-1 in this with Bale and Ramsey scoring .

    Vertonghen has suffered an ankle injury and is done for the tourney.

    Vermaelen already suspended for this game as well.

    Good question. Hazard is also questionnable at this point, he's got a quadriceps issue.

    Courtois
    Meunier
    Denayer (or Ciman)
    Alderweireld
    Jordan Lukaku
    Witsel
    Dembele (or Nainggolan)
    De Bruyne
    Hazard (or Carrasco)
    Mertens
    Romelu Lukaku

    Not many options in defence anymore. If something were to happen to Alderweireld, than we're ****ed.

    Vertonghen tore his ankle up and will miss 4 months.

    Spurs are going to have a bad start to the year. For sure.

    I don't know where you read that, but he will be out for about 6 to 8 weeks. Confirmed by Belgian staff.

    Spurs site CFC said 4 months. And that has now been changed to 6 weeks.

    So probably....8-10 weeks. :)

    I don't care who wins, but the winner HAS to kick out Portugal.

    I want whoever wins this game to win the whole thing but I'm more in favor of Wales.

    Should be fun.

    Rooting for Wales

    Haven't really given enough thought to make a prediction and wasn't able to watch Belgium's previous match yet.

    I would love an upset here so much, but I just don't see it happening.

    I'd guess something like 3-1, Bale getting the 1.
