While the World Cup madness finally starts to erupt, football continues in the Challenger Pro League. Beerschot will play an away match against the RSCA Futures on Saturday evening. Beerschot coach Andreas Wieland will probably only change his team in one place.

Mardocheé Nzita injured his hamstring last weekend in the 1-0 home win. It is still unclear how long the left back will be unavailable, but this weekend’s game will come too early in any case. And so Beerschot coach Andreas Wieland will not be able to play with the same starting eleven for the first time in six games. “Performance was good, I didn’t have much reason to change a lot. Now we will have to make a forced change, but I’m not worried about that. All players who fall next to the team give a very eager impression in training. They make it very difficult for me.”

Nökkvi Thórisson was given a few days off after the birth of his first son, but trained with the group again on Thursday. Internationals Ilias Sebaoui and Ramiro Vaca also joined the group again this week. “Nökkvi is clearly on a pink cloud. I think it is only logical that he was allowed to spend a few days with his wife and his newborn child. He has followed an individual training program. I can only say positive things about Ilias and Ramiro. It’s been a tough few weeks for those two boys. But they both have the qualities to become regular players again. There is no doubt about that.”

Cheering Swiss on training

When RSCA Futures – Beerschot starts, Lionel Messi starts his second group match in Qatar. “Is Argentina playing against Mexico? Well, then it is. I am a football fan and try to follow as much of the World Cup as possible, but of course we focus on our own training sessions and matches. This morning I heard our Swiss Léo Seydoux cheer loudly when he heard that Switzerland had scored against Cameroon. So it lives in the dressing room. The Belgians yesterday? You should be very happy with that flattered victory. Canada deserved at least a point.”
