Vermaelen has spoken about Belgium's chances at the World Cup.
âIâm very excited because itâs a new experience for us,â Vermaelen said.
âIn 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.
âThe country is so happy for us. If you look at when we qualified, I think the whole country was watching that game! Theyâre all thrilled that weâre going to the World Cup.
âWe go there with no fear to play our games and weâll make sure we do all we can. [We will] put all our effort in and see how far we have come.â
