Belgium is of a different caliber than Peru. The team plays with a compact defense and beautiful offensive football in possession of the ball. Belgium refueled confidence with a convincing victory in Sweden,” said national coach Flick. “Belgium is a team that can play football under pressure, that can find solutions, in football terms it is one of the best teams in Europe. It is a good opponent for us. It will not be easy.” As an organizer, Germany has been directly qualified for next year’s European Championship and is preparing with friendly matches. .
