Can Man United end Tottenham’s 100% start to the season at White Hart Lane on Saturday? Click here for Gavin Beech’s thoughts on the match plus all the best prices.

Belgium’s Football Association have asked Dick Advocaat to take charge of their national side earlier than planned.

Belgium are currently without a manager after interim coach Frank Vercauteren stepped down following Belgium’s 2-1 humbling at the hands of Armenia on Wednesday.

That result ended any hope the country had of reaching the 2010 World Cup, leaving them languishing fourth in Group 5.

Advocaat has already been announced as the next man to take the job, having reached an agreement back in July.

Initially, he was due to start his new role upon reaching the end of his contract with Russian outfit Zenit St Petersburg.

Belgium are now hoping that he can be persuaded to begin working with their side earlier than originally agreed.

A statement on the Belgium FA’s official website read: “Contact was made with Dick Advocaat with a view to taking up his post early.

“Mr Advocaat is considering the request.”
