Belgium await a stern test in Egypt in their final warm-up game before the World Cup. The match on Friday will be heavily in favor of the Europeans, however, their priority will not necessarily be to win. As this will be the last time Belgium will take to the pitch before the start of the showpiece event in Qatar, Roberto Martinez will be keen to use this opportunity to experiment with his team for this fixture. With Belgium likely to have their sights set on the World Cup, Egypt could take advantage of the situation to secure a win.
