Belgium vs England: World Cup third place preview, Line ups & Prediction

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.

Prediction:

Belgium 2-0 England
