Belgium take on Morocco in their second Group E game on Sunday at the Al Thumama Stadium.

It is crunch time for both sides, with Belgium in a strong position after their 1-0 win over Canada on Wednesday courtesy of Michy Batshuayi.

However, it was a far from convincing performance from Roberto Martinez’s team, with Canada creating a whole host of chances and Alphonso Davies even missing a penalty for the Maple Leafs. 

Meanwhile, Morocco secured a creditable but unspectacular 0-0 draw with 2018 World Cup finalists Croatia.

The north African side will feel unfortunate however not to have stolen a win in the clash after missing some big chances. 

With the clash quickly approaching, Sportsmail takes you through everything you need to know below.
