Can Belgium win the World Cup?

I thought the Belgium game against the United States was the best I have seen at this World Cup.

I am on holiday in Spain just now and I watched it with several hundred other guests in the hotel. I have never seen so many people so excited by a game.

I don't know if playing 120 minutes will have an impact on them. But I think they showed what a good side they were in their last 16 match.

Everybody has been raving about other more fashionable nations at these finals. But Belgium are a good side and it would be foolish to rule them out as contenders.

If you have a question for Derek, just email him at and we'll print the answer alongside the question.
