    GOOD EVENING

    Welcome to our live coverage of the World Cup qualifier between Belgium and Wales in Group E.

    Less than three months before the postponed European Championships are due to kick-off, the campaign for Qatar 2022 begins in earnest – or Leuven, to be exact.

    And starts don’t get much tougher than a trip to the country top of the FIFA world rankings.

    The star-studded Belgians have not lost a competitive game on home soil in over a decade, and, in Romelu Lukaku, boast international football’s in-form striker.

    The Inter Milan forward has 12 goals and four assists in his last ten appearances for his country, and has been given dispensation to travel for tonight’s game after testing negative for Covid-19.

    Facing the group’s overwhelming favourites in the opener is far from ideal, however, the Welsh can take heart from their recent record against the Red Devils.

    The Dragons are unbeaten in four games with Belgium, and, in their last meeting, were 3-1 victors in a Euro 2016 quarter-final on what remains their greatest night.

    Wales will again be without manager Ryan Giggs as he awaits a decision on his arrest over suspicion of assault, but caretaker coach Rob Page insists it’s business as usual for his players.

    Aaron Ramsey and Ben Davies have withdrawn from the squad due to injury, but skipper Gareth Bale is available while Wales’ most-capped player, Chris Gunter, will make his 100th appearance for his country if involved.

    We’ll have confirmation of tonight’s teams shortly with the action due underway at Den Dreef at 7.45pm.
