The Black Stars captain believes the Red Devils have been splendid so far in the tournament after making it to the semi-finals on Friday

Ghana captain Asamoah Gyan has picked Belgium as his most impressive team at the ongoing Fifa World Cup in Russia.

The Red Devils stunned tournament top favourites Brazil 2-1 in the quarterfinals at the Kazan Arena on Friday.

"Belgium is the country that has impressed me most so far at the World Cup," Gyan told Hot FM.

"After them comes Croatia, although they struggled to meet the expectations of many in their last game against Denmark since they struggled to qualify," he added.

Gyan, however, declined to predict the ultimate winner of the tournament, with Belgium one  game away from the final.

"To be honest, I can't predict who will win the tournament because it's too tricky. There have been several shocks and it will continue until the tournament is over.

"It's too tricky to predict so I will only say that the best and well composed country will win at the end of the tournament. Belgium have a good team and teamwork but it's still too difficult for me to say that they will be the eventual winners," he added. 

Belgium, who eliminated Japan in the round of 16, will face France in the semi-finals on Tuesday July 10.
