The World Cup in Brazil will start on June 12 and before that, the Belgian national football team advised the students to care more about study than the World Cup games.
Antwerp University asked the Belgian soccer team to encourage the students because they have tests until the end of June.
In a footage posted on the university's website, Mousa Dembele said, "I recommend you guys spending your days wisely. I know you want to watch the games. After the games, I want you to study hard."
The captain of the team, Vincent Kompany, said, "You can watch the games, but you can't drink alcohol unless we win."

According to the PR for the university, the number of the students who pass the exams in the World Cup years is 10% lower than usual.
Belgian team will participate in the World Cup for the first time in 12 years, so this will draw a lot of attention from the people in Belgium.
This problem may become worse.
