Both Belgium and England have already qualified for the last 16.

Since 1996, England have played 40 matches at the World Cup and European Championships.

The nation ground to a halt as the Three Lions slipped to a 1-0 defeat to Belgium in the final fixture of Group G, in what was an open and competitive game, despite both managers resting key players.

"The players with yellow cards I don't think it would be professional put those players in, other players have been in very demanding games". Thursday's Group G clash with England is another chance to reignite his personal goalscoring duel with Harry Kane, as the England captain has hit 5 goals already at the mundial following his hat-trick against Panama.

"They did unbelievably well at the last World Cup - it's not going to be easy at all".

Belgium created the better openings in a poor first half while England showed greater urgency but a lack of finesse in the final third.

"She's been a massive help to us when I was growing up, and hopefully we can see her as an MP again". I understand that. But only one person makes that decision with all the full facts and managing a tournament in mind: physically, medically, tactically for the benefit of the group.

Southgate said he had had no preference about who his team would line up against in the last 16, even after Japan surprised by finishing second in Group H and will now face Belgium while England face Colombia.

"We want to win football matches and we also know the big game is the knockout tie to come, so it was hard to balance all of those".

The Belgium worldwide netted 16 goals and made seven assists in the Premier League for Jose Mourinho's men in his first season at the club to help them finish as runners-up to Manchester City in the table.

But with a World Cup Final rematch out of the picture, as well as Germany-Brazil, which matches do we most want to see in the quarters, semis, or final? "If we win, great, but I don't think winning is the priority tomorrow".
