FIFA World Cup
FIFA World Cup quarter final: Argentina vs Belgium
Argentina, the favourites for the 2014 World Cup is set to clash against the dark horses of the tournament, Belgium, who have been impressive in the tournament so far. Both teams go into the competition having won all their matches in the run up to the quarter-finals. But, one team has to sadly pack their bags after the clash tonight, irrespective of their performance so far.

One look at the squad of both the teams reflect the depth in their squad, which is full of star players. Argentina comprises of players such as Messi, Di Maria, Aguero, Mascherano, just to name a few. Comparatively, Belgium possesses some of the best world class stars of the planet, which includes, Lukaku, Vincent kompany, Hazard, Fellani, Mirallas etc.

But, the game is not an individual sport, so all these players need to get their act together and help their team reach the semis of the competition. Still, Argentina would depend on the world's best player to come up with another brilliant game as has been the case in Brazil, where he has somehow jailed the team out in the dying minutes of the game.

But Messi is not going to find it easy against the Belgium defenders as well, who have only conceded two goals in the entire tournament, one against Algeria and the US. On the other hand, the Belgium defense might not have fought a tough opposition like Argentina and Messi, who can rip apart any defense.

With such quality players at disposal during the match, the game is expected to be an entertaining one, where neutrals fans in Brazil would enjoy the game. The team, which progresses into the final four stage would await the winner of the Netherlands and Costa Rica game, which is scheduled later tonight.

Many claim this World Cup to be Messi's best chance of winning the world cup medal. Belguim stands on his way.
