Belgium will meet Tunisia on Saturday and securing a victory could certainly seal their progression to the second round.

Speaking to ESPN, the manager of Belgium national team Roberto Martinez in preparation for the upcoming match said:

“We do want to be boring,”

“We’re a football team. We don’t want to fill pages for the wrong reasons.

“This is the national team: it’s unique, and a special moment in our careers. We’re here to work hard and fulfill the potential we have. Every player in the 23 has a role. The focus has been good from day one — I’m sure it’s boring for many of you, but I’m pleased.”

“We need to manage the ball well: if we lose it in dangerous positions Tunisia will hurt us. We just need to be normal: we need to play our game, remove the pressure from playing in a World Cup and simplify it. They need to win the game, so it will make it very open.”
