Sixty-two World Cup games down and two games to go in Russia, now we have the third-place match between the semifinal losers England and Belgium in Saint Petersburg.
The two sides met in the final Group G game last month, both having qualified, both naming weakened sides, with former Manchester United man Adnan Januzaj scoring the winner past Jordan Pickford.
Predicted line ups
Belgium XI (3-4-3): Mignolet, Vermaelen, Boyata, Kompany, Dendoncker, Dembele, Dellaini, Chadli, Januzaj, Batshuayi, Mertens
England XI (3-5-3): Butland, Jones, Cahill, Maguire, Alexander-Arnold, Loftus-Cheek, Dier, Delph, Rose, Vardy, Rashford
Belgium’s the better side, and England’s going to have a difficult time recovering from an emotionally and physically draining 120-minute loss on Wednesday.
Maybe England finds a way to score on yet another set piece, but Belgium’s midfield and attack is going carve up England’s midfield and defense.
Belgium 2-0 England
