Arsenal captain Vermaelen excited about first World Cup

Arsenal defender Thomas Vermaelen says the prospect of going to the World Cup is exciting.

Vermaelen has spoken about Belgium's chances at the World Cup.

"I'm very excited because it's a new experience for us," Vermaelen said.

"In our squad I think there are only two players who have played at a big tournament before, so it is something we are all looking forward to.

"The country is so happy for us. If you look at when we qualified, I think the whole country was watching that game! They're all thrilled that we're going to the World Cup.

"We go there with no fear to play our games and we'll make sure we do all we can. [We will] put all our effort in and see how far we have come."
