Belgium star Jan Vertonghen is on the verge of making his dreams come true by qualifying for next summer's World Cup.
Belgium need just a draw with Croatia on October 11 to ensure that the defender along with team-mates Nacer Chadli and Mousa Dembele can look forward to hopefully being on the plane next summer with the rest of the Belgium squad.
As he prepares for a return to Premier League action this weekend when Spurs take on Norwich City, Vertonghen knows they are almost there.
He told the club's website: "We're very close now. We have a strong mentality now. The pressure is there because we have big players at big clubs, a lot of pressure from the press and from ourselves as well, because we've (this group) never been to a tournament.
"I think we can deal with it as well.
"The country is behind us and it's looking good for Belgium at the moment."
