England fans go through the motions during Belgium defeat
Jun 30 2018
The two teams are vying for top spot in Group G but that won't stop Southgate from introducing a host of changes, with Jamie Vardy, Marcus Rashford, Trent Alexander-Arnold, Eric Dier and Gary Cahill all expected to start. "We're just pleased we're in the next round". "We didn't deserve to win the title again, we didn't deserve to make the last 16". Don't take it personally, Japan, but it's hard for me to get enthused about watching you against Belgium.
There have been two games so far that have produced seven goals in each. "There are clear rules and a clear understanding, you don't often get teams that are so even and from the beginning you could tell this would be an even group".
Belgian Prime Minister Charles Michel, whose capital hosts the European Union and who is a sharp critic of Britain's decision to leave it, made sure EU leaders were equipped with Belgian supporter scarves as they arrived in Brussels for a summit several hours before the game in Kaliningrad, Russia.
Both teams have beaten Tunisia and Panama to reach six points and secure passage to the last 16, so the anticipated battle between the two strongest sides in the group has lost its edge. That would mean we top the group and then we can move forward.
The knockout stage of the 2018 World Cup is officially set. They would win the 1970 trophy too, but 1966 was a disaster.
Every game has guaranteed at least a goal, with an average of 2.7 goals scored already. However, Bulgaria's rough treatment of Pele forced him to miss their next match, a 3-1 defeat at the hands of Hungary.
As it turns out, the outcome of the match stands to be highly beneficial - to the loser.

It's all in the name of banter after defending world champions Germany were humiliated as they were knocked out of the tournament at the first stage on Wednesday. "We've learned an enormous amount from studying Germany, not least last summer, and implemented that", the England manager said.
After the miracle of 2006, when the Azzurri won the trophy in Germany despite the chaos being caused in their domestic game by the Calciopoli scandal, 2010 in South Africa was a spectacular disaster for the Italians.
