FIFA World Cup 2022 Belgium vs Canada highlights: Thibaut Courtois saved an early penalty and Michy Batshuayi scored the only goal to give Belgium a 1-0 win over Canada at the World Cup on Wednesday, spoiling the North American team's return to the tournament after 36 years. The Canadians have yet to collect a point or even score a goal in four World Cup matches, which includes the three games from their debut in 1986. Still, they outplayed second-ranked Belgium at times at Ahmad Bin Ali Stadium, with Alphonso Davies — the star of Canada’s team — squandering the best chance when his penalty was blocked by Courtois.

    Belgium vs Canada, FIFA World Cup Live: FULL TIME! Belgium 1-0 Canada

    Canada are down on their haunches. They would be disappointed now but they can take solace once they cool down in the fact that they had one of the best teams in the world on their knees at one point in this match. Their finishing leaves a lot to be desired but this is an extremely dangerous team and they certainly have an upset in them if they can keep this up.

    FIFA World Cup 2022 Live score: Just five minutes of stoppage time

    4-5 minutes is normally standard but in the context of how injury time has been awarded in this tournament, it is peanuts. 

  • Nov 24, 2022 02:20 AM IST

    FIFA World Cup 2022 Live: Canada continue pushing

    And they continue to lack the necessary sting in the final third. They have taken as many as 22 shots today but just three have been on target. They get a corner in the 90th minute and the delivery is wildly overhit. 

  • Nov 24, 2022 02:17 AM IST

    FIFA World Cup 2022 Live score: De Bruyne kicks one wide

    Long range shot from the midfielder that goes well wide. We have seen a number of those go in more often than not so this is a bit of a surprise. 

  • Nov 24, 2022 02:12 AM IST

    FIFA World Cup 2022 Live: Another chance!

    Cross into the box, Larin rises and heads it towards goal. It wasn't the most powerful shot though and Courtois holds. Into the last 10 minutes of regulation time now. 

  • Nov 24, 2022 02:07 AM IST

    Belgium vs Canada, FIFA World Cup Live: Chance for Canada!

    75 mins: Tajon Buchanan squares the ball to Larin who takes a second too long to take the shot, the threat is cleared. Canada back to keeping the Belgians trapped in their box. 

  • Nov 24, 2022 01:58 AM IST

    FIFA World Cup 2022 Live: 67 mins gone, Belgium 1-0 Canada

    Two last minute tackles by Kamal Miller and Richie Laryea denies Belgium a chance to double their lead. The first one was at the halfway line, which if not made would have allowed De Bruyne freedom to do practically anything he wanted. The next one was in the box and denied a shooting chance for Batshuayi. 

  • Nov 24, 2022 01:54 AM IST

    FIFA World Cup 2022 Live score: 62 mins gone, Belgium 1-0 Canada

    Hutchinson sends the ball flying into the upper terraces and that was supposed to be a shot of some sort. This has been the difference really, Canada have had more attacking avenues but their finishing has been woeful. Meanwhile, Belgium have taken off captain Eden Hazard for Leandro Tossard.

  • Nov 24, 2022 01:48 AM IST

    FIFA World Cup 2022 Live: Yellow cards for Belgian subs

    56 mins: Muscle. that seems to the main reason why Roberto Martinez brought on these two players. First Meunier is booked for a wayward arm to a Canadian face and then Onana gets shown the yellow paper for swatting at Eustaquio. 

  • Nov 24, 2022 01:42 AM IST

    Belgium vs Canada, FIFA World Cup Live: Early chance for Canada!

    50 mins gone: Eustaquio sends in a lovely cross but it is headed wide by Davies. Just before that, Onana shows exactly what it is that he has been brought on to do by putting in a cynical push on Davies.  

  • Nov 24, 2022 01:37 AM IST

    FIFA World Cup 2022 Live score: Second half kicks off!

    Belgium get the second half started. If they do get the benefit of some truly shocking refereeing errors like how they did in that first half will they use them better this time? Let's see. They have made two substitutions though, Yannick Carrasco has been taken off for Thomas Meunier and Roberto Martinez has decided that he wants the muscle of Amadou Onana in the central midfield position instead of the lesser muscle and higher creativity of Youri Tielemans, who was rendered ineffective in that first half. 

  • Nov 24, 2022 01:23 AM IST

    FIFA World Cup 2022 Live: HALF TIME! Belgium 1-0 Canada

    How about that for a first half. Canada were utterly dominant in that first half and they are trailing 1-0. Belgium have had the better of good fortune as far refereeing decisions go. Nine decisions, many of them soft fouls, have gone against Canada whereas Belgium are quite lucky to have not given away at least one more penalty apart from what Courtois saved early on. 

  • Nov 24, 2022 01:16 AM IST

    Belgium vs Canada, FIFA World Cup Live: GOAL! It's Belgium who take the lead! (Batshuayi 44')

    Where did that come from. Direct ball from the midfield probably intended for Carrasco finds Batshuayi who drills it into goal. That is the definition of a goal against the run of play. 

  • Nov 24, 2022 01:09 AM IST

    FIFA World Cup 2022 Live score: Penalty denied for Canada!

    Well this is a bit of a surprise. Laryea goes down after Witsel has a nibble at him inside the box. Referee says no penalty, there is a VAR check during which the Canadian fans chant “VAR! VAR!” There is clear contact there but the VAR decides against giving the penalty as well. Witsel's hand was on Laryea's back and there may have been a trip as well. Belgium have had the better luck in the first half with the referee apart from that clear-cut penalty, that was also given only after a VAR check. 

  • Nov 24, 2022 01:02 AM IST

    FIFA World Cup 2022 Live: Belgium in a Canadian washing machine

    32nd minute: There are shots and forwards flying in from everywhere and the Belgian defenders look a little clueless at the moment. It is so easy to forget that Canada have qualified for the World Cup just once before and that was decades ago while Belgium are second on the FIFA rankings. Canada have taken 11 shots (!) thus far. Belgium? Just the two. 

  • Nov 24, 2022 12:59 AM IST

    Belgium vs Canada, FIFA World Cup Live: 28 mins gone, Belgium 0-0 Canada

    Davies goes past several Belgian defenders, squares it to Hutchinson and the latter's shot is wide. Belgium are looking better but because of that, this match now looks like a match between equals which shows just how good Canada have been today. 

  • Nov 24, 2022 12:53 AM IST

    FIFA World Cup 2022 Live score: Chance for Belgium!

    23rd min: Corner for Belgium after Batshuayi is unable to control the shot in the box after a loose first touch. It was started by Hazard brilliantly taking down a lofted ball and passing it forward to De Bruyne. The Manchester City midfielder squares it to Batshuayi who can only provoke a corner that comes to nothing. Belgium looking surer of themselves now.  

  • Nov 24, 2022 12:50 AM IST

    FIFA World Cup 2022 Live: 20 mins gone, Belgium 0-0 Canada

    Well it has levelled off somewhat, Belgium managing to get some more consistent possession but not enough. Meanwhile, Canada's supersonic forwards are showing that having an “experienced” defence can often be a bad thing because of the age factor. 

  • Nov 24, 2022 12:44 AM IST

    Spain vs Costa Rica, FIFA World Cup Live: Canada continue to press

    14 mins: It is safe to say that Canada have absolutely dominated the early part of this first half. Davis and Laryea have a couple of pings at goal that is parried away by Belgian defenders. Belgium are struggling to get out of their own third here!

  • Nov 24, 2022 12:42 AM IST

    FIFA World Cup 2022 Live score: PENALTY SAVED!

    Well that penalty did take a long time to set up, Davies was standing over the ball for hours and it seems Courtois had the advantage because of that. There was a slight chance at the rebound but it was too acute. 

  • Nov 24, 2022 12:40 AM IST

    FIFA World Cup 2022 Live: PENALTY FOR CANADA!

    It had deflected off Carrasco's hands! Canada have never scored a World Cup goal and now their superstar Alphonso Davies stands over the ball with Thibaut Courtois guarding the goal. Carrasco gets a yellow card as well. Wow, what a start! 

  • Nov 24, 2022 12:37 AM IST

    Belgium vs Canada, FIFA World Cup Live:  Chances for Canada!

    6th min: Well Canada giving Belgium some real scares here. Laryea sits a Belgian player down and crosses it in, Buchanan heads it goalwards and Courtois palms it away. The resulting corner produces a shot from Buchanan that is deflected up and caught by Courtois but wait a minute, the VAR is checking for handball inside the box!

  • Nov 24, 2022 12:34 AM IST

    FIFA World Cup 2022 Live score: Early chances at both ends

    Batshuayi gets a long range shot that is fizzing and dipping. Hutchinson did well to hold on despite it being right into his body. Then Canada come back with their own attack on the Belgium box that is thwarted. 

  • Nov 24, 2022 12:31 AM IST

    FIFA World Cup 2022 Live: Canada kick off the game!

    It's now or never for Belgium's golden boys, and now has never been better for Canada's own golden generation. Canada in all white attacking from right to left, Belgium in red and black. 

  • Nov 24, 2022 12:25 AM IST

    Belgium vs Canada, FIFA World Cup Live: National anthems!

    The players walk out, the Belgian national anthem rings out, followed by the Canadian. Significantly louder rendition of Canada's national anthem in the stands.

    FIFA World Cup 2022 Live score: New Canada

    Midfielder Stephen Eustaquio says this is a “New Canada" that is trying to open up avenues for future generations. The country has experienced a real upswing in talent but they still had to beat the mighty Mexico and USA at home and hold them to draws away from home on their way to qualifying for the finals.

    FIFA World Cup 2022 Live: Lukaku's absence

    Romelu Lukaku is part of the Belgium entourage but he is not there in the squad not just for this match, but for the entire World Cup because of an injury.

    Belgium vs Canada Live Score: Hello and welcome!

    Belgium know what it is like to consistently remain top of the FIFA rankings for many years. However, they have not got any trophies to show and so this period of dominance has gone pretty much unnoticed. Moreover, the players of their golden generation are slowly ticking into the retirement territory of their 30s and so, there is a feeling that this might the last realistic chance for this team to challenge for the World Cup.
