BELGIUM can qualify for the knockout stages of the World Cup if they score a victory over Morocco in their second Group F game.

The Red Devils squeaked past a Canadian side who were unlucky not to score.

But they now come up against a tough Moroccan team desperate to make amends for their 0-0 draw with Croatia.

The Moroccans comfortably topped their World Cup qualifying group by winning EVERY single match.

And they officially sealed their spot by pummelling DR Congo 5-2 on aggregate in the CAF third round.

However, the Red Devils’ hunger to make it further than the third place play-off this time could spur them on to collect all three points.

But Morocco came out on top the last time these sides met way back in 2008.
