Cyprus were trashed out on two occasions during the Euro 2016 qualifying fixtures and now they will be seeking for a sweet revenge on Belgium. Belgians demolished Cyprian side by 5–0 margin in their first meeting, with goals from Benteke, Michy Batshuayi, Hazard and Fellaini were enough to defeat Cyprus. Eden Hazard’s lone goal at Cyprus home goal handed them the win in the 2nd match. Though Cyprus didn’t make it to Euros, the campaign was better than the previous ones as they won 4 out of 10 games. They are hoping for a better qualifying campaign in this one.
Meantime, Belgium’s new coaching staff which consists of the head-coach Roberto Martinez and the assistant manager Thierry Henry will be put to test on Tuesday. They lost 2–0 Spain in an international friendly on Friday, as David Silva’s brace broke their hearts. They have a star equipped side and have no excuse not to qualify for the upcoming 2018 FIFA event. Martinez’s designation came as a complete surprise to football society, but its left to him to prove on his first competitive match.
