The Chelsea man has been quiet in his first four games of the tournament, but Wilmots is fully aware of the talent that the 23-year-old possesses and feels that he is ready to make an impact in Brazil.
"I have followed Eden for a long time and in the last 18 months he has improved," Wilmots told reporters.
"I talked to him last night and told him how he could improve even more. You will hopefully see a result on the pitch. He is eager."
Belgium face off against Argentina in Brasilia later today.
