Vermaelen has spoken about Belgium's chances at the World Cup.
â€śIâ€™m very excited because itâ€™s a new experience for us,â€ť Vermaelen said.
â€śIn 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.
â€śThe country is so happy for us. If you look at when we qualified, I think the whole country was watching that game! Theyâ€™re all thrilled that weâ€™re going to the World Cup.
â€śWe go there with no fear to play our games and weâ€™ll make sure we do all we can. [We will] put all our effort in and see how far we have come.â€ť
