England vs. Belgium - Football Match Report

ENGLAND WAGS

England´s forward Harry Kane celebrates with England´s midfielder Jordan Henderson (R) after scoring a penalty during the Russian Federation 2018 World Cup Group G football match between England and Panama at the Nizhny Novgorod Stadium in Nizhny Novgorod on June 24, 2018.

The Chelsea defender accepts England have been given plenty to think about, but insists they can still take momentum from previous group game victories over Tunisia and Panama into their last-16 showdown with Colombia in Moscow on Tuesday night.

All the pre-match talk had been about whether second place might offer an easier path to the semi-finals, given that the group winners could face Brazil in the last eight.

Below are more details on the broadcast, which will be aired in Spanish and will begin at 1:30 p.m. ET.

Both sides - packed with Premier League talent - have sailed through Group G, winning their two games and are now in the curious situation of weighing up whether they even want to top the section.

While every other group in the World Cup has come down to nail-shredding final matches, Group G is concluding with a kickabout between B-teams. The match will also be livestreamed in Spanish on TelemundoDeportes.com and via the Telemundo Deportes En Vivo and NBC Sports apps.

Januzaj was a child prodigy at Manchester United and was once earmarked for an England place through naturalized citizenship, but on Thursday he proved the difference for Belgium in a vital win over The Three Lions.

"Making predictions in the World Cup can be a little bit hard", Martinez said, insisting Belgium would concentrate on their meeting with Japan in Rostov-on-Don.

Croatia top group after last minute winner against Iceland
But Iceland got one back on a penalty kick in the 76th minute, as Croatia conceded for the first time in Russian Federation 2018. The Iceland defender Sverrir Ingason almost scored twice just moments later, heading just over and then again off the crossbar.

"I don't think you can plan the ideal scenario", the Spaniard said, noting the travails of Germany and other top teams so far. Beat Colombia, however, and you'd encounter either Sweden or Switzerland and then likely a struggling Spain or perhaps Croatia - or even Russian Federation or Denmark.

The team will enjoy a day off on Friday having flown back to St Petersburg overnight, with those who did not feature in Kaliningrad - including the captain and tournament leading scorer, Harry Kane - ready on Saturday to begin their preparations for the last 16 game.

For Southgate, it was as much about ensuring players like Kane did not pick up injuries in a game that wasn't essential.

Belgium's side of the draw includes Argentina, Brazil, Portugal and France while England's opponents are, on paper, easier and they face less traveling should they progress.

But Martinez, who before the game had said winning was not a priority and made nine changes to his line-up, refused to look at the outcome that way and emphasised the vagaries of football. A win would mean a game against either Sweden or Switzerland awaits, and Southgate can be optimistic. "People will say, "It's only the right decision if we win" but it's the right decision because we'd be going into a match that could go into extra time and risking players we didn't need to risk".

The Belgians did have couple chances to extend their lead in the closing stages, but the likes of Marouane Fellaini and Dries Mertens could not take advantage as the clash ended 1-0. Players have been in very demanding games.

Finishing second, England take on Colombia, with a potential quarterfinal against the victor of Sweden vs. Switzerland.
