Belgium are better than Argentina - Gomez and Panama ignoring Iceland result

No matter where you are on the planet, you can see what channel the Belgium vs Panama match is available on here.

Sweden's win was their first in a World Cup opening match since 1958, breaking a seven-game winless run in their opening games at World Cups. But, Sweden couldn't muster a single win in their last three warm-up matches and one can't forget that this time they will be playing without Zlatan Ibrahimovic. While they were able to step up in the second half and take the anticipated win, if they still require points against England in the final group game, Gareth Southgate's side will be able to target that uncertainty.

"It played against an Argentina squad which isn't at the same level as Belgium right now. We arrive at the World Cup with problems scoring the goals". "Nobody likes losing. Some people may say that three goals is a lot, but honestly, three goals against the team we played against today, taking into consideration our experience, this was a normal result, or even abnormal if you consider that it should have been worse". He has the best players.

Martinez's golden generation have been tipped as potential champions, but Belgium - beaten by Wales in the Euro 2016 quarter-finals - will likely need to improve on an often-underwhelming performance when they face stronger opposition. Anything can happen in football. "We'd be very proud if we can get a good result tomorrow". The signs are promising: the Belgian squad hurled through their qualifying matches like a whirlwind, losing not a single match, scoring a record 43 goals, and qualifying as the first European team for Russian Federation.

"We can be an example and leave a legacy in Panama for future World Cups", Gomez added. It's one of the most wonderful things in your career.

"I told them we played with dignity".

I feel especially over the last season, Hazard has become increasingly clever tactically - he knows where to move and drag his markers to open up space for his teammates. While he and his teams suffered group stage exits in those competitions, they were only narrowly undone and, as he showed on Monday, his Panama team will be well-organised and determined in defence.

Gomez continued: "The country is holding its breath for us".
