England v Belgium: Match Preview
England take on Belgium in their 3rd and final Group G game on Thursday in Kaliningrad, and while bookmakers offer England as the favourites to win, this may be one game Gareth Southgate’s men are happy to lose.
Without a doubt, it’ll be the toughest group game for England, and with both teams already set to progress to the next stages, Southgate needs to figure out it it’s better to finish in second place.
England and Belgium come into the clash level on 6 points, with both teams comfortably winning their first 2 games against both Panama and Tunisia.
There were also some high scoring results, with England beating Panama 6-1 in their last game, while Belgium beat Tunisia 5-2. The England v Belgium game isn’t expected to produce similar high scores, as it should be much more of an even game.
As this is more of a placement game than a qualifying game, we’ll have to wait and see if Southgate makes any major changes to his team, or if he decides to rest up some of the key players heading into the World Cup 2018 Round of 16.
There are no major injury worries for England, with Dele Alli set to be back in the line-up after missing the Panama clash, however a few yellow cards have been handed out that Southgate will be wary of.
Belgium coach Martinez has hinted that he may rest Romelu Lukaku and perhaps Eden Hazard, as they are both carrying minor injuries and need to be fit for their Round of 16 game, especially as Kevin De Bruyne, Thomas Meunier and Vertonghen are all on yellow cards.
This is without a doubt going to be a tough game for England. Belgium have already shown what a challenging opponent they are, and won’t be an easy team to beat.
Bookmakers offer England as slight favourites, and with Harry Kane on fire at the moment, having scored another 3 goals against Panama, there's no reason why England can’t win.
