Everton winger Kevin Mirallas says Belgium's players are ignoring the World Cup hype around their team.

Littered with Premier League stars such as former Everton loanee Romelu Lukaku, Manchester City captain Vincent Kompany and Chelsea's Eden Hazard - as well as Mirallas - Marc Wilmots' side are expected to deliver an impressive showing in their first major tournament since 2002.

"Everyone is thinking that we are going to have an absolutely magical experience in Brazil and for us as players it is going to be special," Mirallas said. "But we remain very focused on our goal. This is a squad with a real sense of belief, but we are keeping our feet very much on the ground.

"All we are concentrating on at the moment is getting out of the group because it won't be easy."
