Belgium have a tough Egypt test awaiting them in their final warm-up match before the World Cup. This contest on Friday will be heavily in favour of the Europeans, however, their priority might not necessarily be in securing the victory. Since this will be the final time Belgium will take to the pitch before the start of the showpiece event in Qatar, Roberto Martinez would be eager to use this opportunity to experiment with his squad for this fixture. With Belgium likely having one eye set on the World Cup, Egypt can take advantage of this situation to get the victory.

Besides, this will be the final time Egypt will play in this calendar year, hence their players would want to end 2022 on a high. Notably, their star forward Mohamed Salah is on the cusp of achieving a milestone, as he is one goal shy of reaching 50 strikes. The Liverpool frontman would love to reach this landmark on Friday against Belgium. Meanwhile, Belgium had a mediocre Nations League outing after managing only a second-place finish in League A Group 4. They are going into this fixture on the back of losing to the Netherlands in their last match.
