Couple of tweets before we sign off.

02:31 (IST)24 NOV 2022

Canada's English manager John Herdman has his team in a circle as he delivers a team talk. And off they go inside. Canada gave it their all but ultimately was not enough.

02:27 (IST)24 NOV 2022

FULL-TIME! Belgium 1 Canada 0. Canada tried and tried but couldn't break down a resolute Belgium defence in the 2nd half. Michy Batshuayi the goalscorer for Belgium and that proves to be the difference in the end.

02:23 (IST)24 NOV 2022

5 minutes of added time.

02:11 (IST)24 NOV 2022

Canada press and Cyle Larin directs his header at goal but Courtois makes the catch. Needed to be in the corner.

02:09 (IST)24 NOV 2022

Belgium make a change: Michy Batshuayi goes off and on comes Lois Openda.

01:58 (IST)24 NOV 2022

Canada make a couple of substitutions: Ismael Kone and Cyle Larin are on for 39-year-old Atiba Hutchinson and Junior Hoilett.

01:57 (IST)24 NOV 2022

Canada are still going for this but Belgium are looking dangerous on the counter.

01:44 (IST)24 NOV 2022

Thomas Meunier has replaced Yannick Carrasco and Amadou Onana has replaced Youri Tielemans.

01:37 (IST)24 NOV 2022

Second half starts.

01:21 (IST)24 NOV 2022

HALF-TIME! Belgium 1 Canada 0. Such a misleading scoreline this. Canada absolutely dominated Belgium as they came with attack after attack. A penalty miss by Davies and against the run of play Batshuayi made it 1-0 with a fine finish. A breathless action-packed half that one.

01:20 (IST)24 NOV 2022

Glorious chance for Canada and Tajon Buchanan sliding and stretching hooks it over from close range after being fed in from the right.

01:15 (IST)24 NOV 2022

GOAL! Michy Batshuayi in the 44th minute! Belgium 1 Canada 0. Batshuayi who has been poor so far comes up with a big goal. A long ball over the top which Batshuayi lets it come over his shoulder, then smacks it on the half-volley and it flies past the keeper. No chance for Milan Borjan.

01:11 (IST)24 NOV 2022

STAT courtesy the BBC: Thibaut Courtois has saved five of the nine penalties he has faced for club and country in all competitions in 2022 (56%). 

01:03 (IST)24 NOV 2022

Canada are coming in waves now at the Belgium goal. Too much pace on the cross and David's header loops wide.

01:03 (IST)24 NOV 2022

Belgium are really struggling now. Jonathan David's shot is blocked by a desperate lunge from a Belgium defender clears the danger.

01:01 (IST)24 NOV 2022

Alistair Johnston now stings Thibaut Courtois' palms with a stinging drive which the keeper punches away.

01:00 (IST)24 NOV 2022

After a good sell for Belgium, Canada have come storming back.

00:47 (IST)24 NOV 2022

A long ball over the top catches out the three-man Belgian defence but David Hoilett drags the shot wide. But danger signs this for Belgium.

00:46 (IST)24 NOV 2022

Canada are pressing very high and there are calls for another penalty when a striker is brought down but the flag is up for offside.

00:41 (IST)24 NOV 2022

PENALTY SAVED! Poor penalty from Alphonso Davies as he side-foots to Courtois' right and the big man dives to his right to push it away. The ball again comes to Davies but he can't control and it's cleared. Courtois gets up and roars in delight.

00:40 (IST)24 NOV 2022

Yannick Carrasco had his arms away from his body and the Zambian referee looks at the TV monitor and points to the spot. 

00:39 (IST)24 NOV 2022

PENALTY to CANADA!

00:39 (IST)24 NOV 2022

Tajon Buchanan gets a shot away from a corner and he appeals for a handball. Soon VAR gets involved for a possible penalty. They are checking.

00:32 (IST)24 NOV 2022

Inside the first minute, Canada give away the ball and Michy Batshuayi shoots straight at the keeper.

00:31 (IST)24 NOV 2022

KICK-OFF!

00:25 (IST)24 NOV 2022

Time for the anthems.

00:05 (IST)24 NOV 2022

Michy Batshuayi is another player who'll be eager to make a mark in the absence of the injured Romelu Lukaku. 

As for Canada, Alphonso Davies and Jonathan David will be two players to keep an eye out for, with the pair earning rave reviews for their performances in recent seasons for Bayern Munich and Lille, respectively. 

23:21 (IST)23 NOV 2022

Belgium have some genuinely world-class players on the pitch, but all eyes will be on Eden Hazard. The Real Madrid winger has been nowhere close to his best since leaving Chelsea and has struggled with a string of injuries in recent seasons. However, at the 2018 FIFA World Cup, he looked absolutely unstoppable and was undoubtedly one of the best players in Russia. 

Will the Belgian maestro return to his best on the grandest stage? Only time will tell. 

23:18 (IST)23 NOV 2022

Official Canada XI:

Borjan; Johnston, Vitória, Miller, Laryea; Hoilett, Eustáquio, Hutchinson; Buchanan, David, Davies.

23:17 (IST)23 NOV 2022

Official Belgium XI:

Courtois; Dendoncker, Alderweireld, Vertonghen; Castagne, Witsel, Tielemans, De Bruyne, Carrasco; Hazard, Batshuayi.
