Fresh from qualifying for the World Cup finals in Brazil, Belgium and Colombia go head-to-head on Thursday as preparations for next year’s showcase get underway.

Belgium will appear in the competition for the first time in 12 years after finishing nine points clear at the top of their group.

Both have enjoyed a meteoric rise in the FIFA rankings, and ahead of this week’s friendly, we look at just some of the key battles that could decide the fixture.
