Vincent Kompany tangles with Yuya Osako of Japan

The World Cup is all about pressure and no one has more pressure on them in Russia 2018 than Belgium.

This incredible group of players, including Eden Hazard, Kevin de Bruyne and Romelu Lukaku – just to name a few, have been talked about as the best in the nation’s history but they are yet to produce the truly great result that would see them live up to the tag of the ‘golden generation.’

Vincent Kompany was put on the spot about the tag leading up to Belgium’s quarter-final with favourites Brazil in Kazan on Friday (22:00 UAE time) – it’s interesting to hear his response.
