Belgium's talented young team face hurdles to growth -- soccer - ESPN

This is an interesting read if you’re not particularly familiar with Belgium as tomorrow’s friendly between les Diables Rouges and the Yanks approaches, especially concerning the somewhat haphazard way the country merges French (Wallons), Dutch-Flemish (Flanders), and German regions. Suffice it to say the Belgian squad has its own unique tensions surrounding it, but when you look at the roster (Kompany, Vermaelen, Hazard, Fellaini, Lukaku, van Buyten, to name a few) you have to think they should be better than 3rd place in their Euro 2012 qualifying group.
