Belgium third after 2-0 win over England

14 July 2018

Belgium secured the bronze medal at the 2018 World Cup after goals from Thomas Meunier and Eden Hazard secured a 2-0 win over England.

Eric Dier's low drive was comfortable for Thibaut Courtois and Dier then had a dinked shot brilliantly cleared off the line by Tottenham team-mate Toby Alderweireld.

Third place for Belgium, meanwhile, would have been its highest finish in World Cup history.

The spirit within the England squad that has been built and fostered over the last 18-months has become even stronger during the group's time together in Russian Federation. The match starts at 19:30 IST.

The three-goal over/under is one of the highest we've seen at World Cup 2018, largely because this game features the highest-scoring teams in the tournament: Belgium on 14 goals and England on 12.

Debate has raged over the magnitude of the chance England may have missed in falling short of the final without facing one of the tournament favourites.

ITV is showing today's match between England and Belgium, with coverage starting at 2.30pm and kick-off set for 3pm.

In a amusing turn of events, this will be the second time that Belgium and England face off at the 2018 World Cup, and the second time the outcome of the match will be met with relative indifference. Dominant and lively, they looked set to extend that lead until England regained their composure, dulling the incisive swipes of the Belgians' passing as the half wore on. The third-place play-off is often criticised but will be a sure-fire way for the two nations to salute their devoted fans and have further adulation reciprocated.

Kane tops the scoring charts in Russian Federation on six strikes while Lukaku sits two behind on four, although he has an assist to his name which could come into play if the pair finish level on goals. That holds true even if the two teams that are playing are arguably two of the most entertaining teams in the tournament.

England started the second half with a bit more impetus and had a good opportunity in the 50th minute when Kieran Trippier lofted a free kick into the box towards John Stones. Only want to see Chelsea's captain, leader, never-say-die centre-back Gary Cahill get a proper complete game in what will likely be his last appearance for the Three Lions. And within that four minutes, they scored.

And though they harbour their own bitter disappointment after being edged out in a tight semi-final by France, De Bruyne insisted all of the Belgian squad were equally determined to clinch a third-placed finish.

"But I would accept it is very hard when you had the ambition of getting to the final".

This afternoon's match in Saint Petersburg marked 100 competitive matches for England in major competitions; 69 of those have come during the World Cup finals, while 31 have come during the European Championships. England had quite the World Cup run.

Of course, that is purely in footballing terms because, financially, Federation Internationale de Football Association will milk the World Cup cow until it is bone dry with ticket sales, sponsorship, adverts and TV revenue all being guzzled up through another fixture on the schedule.
