Roberto Martinez thinks that his Belgian team is ready to face one of the greatest challenges of football: a knockout match against mighty Brazil.
Martinez has agreed that Belgium will be underrated against the five-time world champion at the Kazan Arena on Friday as they compete for a place in the semifinals.
After winning all three group matches in Russia and returning two goals to beat Japan in the round of 16, he was confident that his players were ready for their task.
“This is a great opportunity, you can not hide it, if you try to hide it, you are a bit of a stupid person,” said the Spanish coach at a press conference on Thursday.
“But we worked so hard to get there, we grew up in the tournament, there is something really special about this team.
“The signs, they have been positive, there is a real desire to be on the football field, we can not wait to be there and I think we are as ready as we ever will be.”
The match between two teams rich in offensive talents world-class should be close, but Martinez said that an important factor separates Brazil.
“The difference is that we did not win a World Cup, it’s as simple as that,” he added.
“When you go to a tournament and you do not have the skill to win a tournament, you can not have an advantage over the opponent.
“Brazil knows how to win World Cups, they did it more than any other country so they have this psychological barrier out of the way, we have to respect them because of what they have accomplished.”
This respect was evident in all the Spaniard’s statements on Thursday, but, while acknowledging the dangers presented by Brazilian striker Neymar, Martinez was confident that Eden Hazard’s skills would also be influential for Belgium.
“I think that individual talent is a big weapon for both teams,” he said.
“We are counting on one-on-one situations, we both have strong goals, we are counting on open football, we are not going to keep blank sheets, or we are trying to be strong on the defensive side.
