Why England Fans Want Their Team to Lose Against Belgium

Share

To change or not to change, that has been one of the big questions before England's final Group G game on Thursday against Belgium with last-16 qualification already assured.

But in Belgium they face the world's third-ranked side, and a squad loaded with world-class talent such as Eden Hazard and Kevin De Bruyne.

"For a country like Denmark, getting out of their group is a great achievement, but there are other teams who have designs on actually winning the tournament".

Despite a huge scare for Lionel Messi´s Argentina, who needed a late goal from Marcos Rojo to edge through to the knockout phase on Tuesday, all of the tournament´s remaining big guns are through to the last 16 in Russian Federation. I'm not interested in what Roberto Martinez wants to do and rest a few.

The teams have been among World Cup 2018's top scoring sides after Game 2, but their attacking prowess will fade under the pressure that accompanies this decisive game.

"The players that come in have a high level of motivation", Southgate said. "As team mates we know each other better than other opposition".

Carlos Vela, meanwhile, scored last time out and has generally been effective for Mexico if not a tad wasteful in front of goal . Sweden have impressed me greatly and although Mexico beat Germany , I still have doubts over the North American side.

After being held to a draw by Iceland and humiliated by Croatia , Argentina's World Cup could already have been all but over. Last chance at World Cup glory? "I've always had the dream of watching me raise the World Cup ".

The decision comes shortly after former Arsenal manager Arsene Wenger criticised Southgate for leaving Dier out of the starting line-up for the opening pair of fixtures.

With Germany suffering a shock elimination and Brazil not yet guaranteed to qualify, some have suggested finishing second in the group would give England, who are in the aforementioned pair's half of the draw, an easier route to the final.

Colombia is most likely to await the team that finishes second in the group should it beat Senegal - and the South Americans will prove tough opponents, as they showed in their 3-0 demolition of an admittedly disappointing Poland side and in they way they pushed Japan all the way despite playing 87 minutes with 10 men.

Belgium defender Toby Alderweireld underlined that fact, saying, "Belgium wants to win every game". "We just want to keep winning and winning".

FIFA's Code of Conduct says that a team must always play to win. As much as the game has been hyped up, we could see key players rested to avoid injuries or suspensions as they prepare for the knockout stages. That'll put us in good stead.

"We are happy that tomorrow is probably one day too early, but I don't think he is going to take any longer than that".
