Romelu Lukaku has admitted he is "proud" of the interest shown in him by Italian giants Juventus, but is concentrating on the task at hand.
The 21-year-old will make his first appearance in an international tournament against Algeria on Tuesday, while Belgium play their first tournament match since 2002.
After a brilliant season with Everton Lukaku may have expected to find himself in Jose Mourinho's Chelsea plans, but instead the powerful striker is being linked away from Stamford Bridge with Diego Costa expected to arrive as first choice.
"I'm proud of Juventus' interest for me, but I just think of Belgium now," he told Sky Italia.
"It's been 12 years that we haven't played in a big tournament, so now we are here and hopefully we will show the people that we can play good football."

1/5 How they qualified
Perhaps the most interesting team in this year’s World Cup, Belgium qualified in dominating fashion as they laid a national record of seven straight qualifying wins whilst remaining undefeated. The only shortcomings were two meagre draws against Croatia and Wales but Serbia, Scotland and FYROM could not stop them. Eventually, Belgium finished nine points ahead of second place. Their powerful and disciplined displays led to the team scoring 18 goals and conceding only four in the entire round which resulted in eight wins out of ten matches. The lion share of their success is due to the fact that the team is a very physically imposing side that cannot be outperformed when it comes to strength.
Marc Wilmots got a group of very talented players on the same page and showed them how to get the best out of any other side through a patient, defensive and disciplined manner. He is fortunate enough to have a number of attacking players on his disposal that could come handy at any given moment.
3/5 Star Player
Talent is flowing through the Belgium national squad but it is Eden Hazard that has proven that his presence in the front line is key. The 23-year-old is an incredible technician with explosive pace as well as fantastic passing and dribbling skills. This season, he proved to be Chelsea’s main playmaker by becoming the Blues’ top scorer with 14 goals and seven assists. He will be an invaluable member for his team in Brazil.
4/5 Emerging Talent
Adnan Januzaj is the most promising young talent at Manchester United and much is expected from him and his country this summer at Brazil. The 19-year-old had a very impressive season with the Red Devils, picking up four goals and three assists in 27 matches.
5/5 How they line up: (4-2-3-1)
Courtois; Vertonghen, Kompany, Van Buyten, Alderweireld; Fellaini, Witsel; Mirallas, De Bruyne, Hazard; Lukaku.
Belgium reached the first knockout stage in 2002, losing to eventual winners Brazil 2-0.
But this Belgian team is vastly different and are being tipped by many to be the tournament's dark horses - English fans will be familiar with the squad, with 12 of them currently plying their trade in the Premier League and another two with Premier League experience.
"We don't feel much pressure, we are a young team, we are relaxed, everybody is confident in themselves.
"We have a good team, we have already played for four years together so we are ready now.
"We all started [our preparations] in Belgium before we left so we know how it is to play in Belgium but it's obviously a great moment to play for your country and especially at a World Cup.
"We are all very proud we are Belgian so now we have a chance to represent our country at the greatest competition in the world."Reuse content
