Belgium set to take on Egypt in World Cup warm-up match

It seems as if Egypt will be Belgium’s final opponents ahead of the World Cup, with the two sides set to clash in Kuwait.

Belgium will begin their World Cup on November 23, going up against Canada, but it has not yet been confirmed who they will play in a warm-up match before that.

According to Het Laatste Nieuws, their opponents will be Egypt, and the game will take place on November 18 in Kuwait.

The report claims that Roberto Martinez and co were initially considering playing Algeria or the United Arab Emirates before deciding on Egypt, who failed to qualify for the World Cup themselves.

It also states that the Belgian association will benefit financially, with Kuwait paying over €500,000 for the match to take place in their country.

The Red Devils are to meet up in their training camp in Tubize on November 14, leave for Kuwait after two days and then fly to Qatar a day after the match.
