Big World Cup hopes for tiny Belgium

The European country is being considered a major player at the World Cup in Brazil after rising from ashes of Euro 2000.

    Belgium will begin their World Cup campaign against Algeria on Tuesday.

    The national side has been one of the rising forces in world football over the past two years, rising from 53rd in the world to fifth place.

    After going unbeaten through the qualifying matches, many are predicting that the team led by Manchester City captain Vincent Kompany could cause a few surprises in Brazil.
