Belgium third in World Cup after 2-0 win over England

Saint Petersburg Stadium

We had one cleared off the line and we put the pressure on.

"We had to play flat out", the England boss continued. We scored the biggest amount of goals in a Belgian team in World Cup history. "They push all of us".

The set-piece success has been celebrated after nine goals were scored in Russian Federation from deadball situations, but it's masked genuine deficiencies from open play.

France and Croatia will play in the final on Sunday at the Luzhniki Stadium in Moscow.

The FIFA World Cup 2018 Belgium v/s England match begins at 7.30 PM IST (1930 hrs).

Harry Kane: A stand-out key player for England throughout the tournament, the Tottenham Hotspur striker showed composure throughout the tournament. We had them on the ropes for the first half-hour of that and we just couldn't get a goal. We're still learning. We're still getting better, " England captain Harry Kane said. I play a good World Cup.

The goal means Belgium have had 10 different goalscorers at this World Cup - equalling the record set by France in 1982 and Italy in 2006.

Belgium's previous best finish at the World Cup was fourth, but the team outplayed England in the midfield to go one better this time.

The man who restored England's mojo at the World Cup, and brought the waist coast (or vest) back into fashion, has signed off after a fourth-place finish with some love for Russian Federation. He has attempted seven shots in the knockout rounds and only his penalty kick goal against Colombia hit the target. England's Kane attempts a shot at goal but hits it wide.

Belgium have now defeated England twice in a fortnight, having waited 82 years to beat them before winning 1-0 in their group stage encounter.

Canadian referee Joe Fletcher worked the game as an assistant VAR.

There are also starting spots for Phil Jones, Fabian Delph and Ruben Loftus-Cheek. But it did give us all a smile or two as Southgate's likable team made an improbable run to the semis and for a week or so, made a nation believe. Meunier scored and Youri Tielemans dominated the midfield.

England's Harry Kane still leads the World Cup Golden Boot race with six goals, despite not taking a shot on target in his last four hours and 33 minutes on the pitch, Sky Sports reports. England wins from a set piece.

However England will have a particular incentive to reach the semi-finals at the European Championships in 2020, as both semi-finals and the final will take place at Wembley.

England defender John Stones said that could be a boost after the surprise run to the semifinals in Russian Federation prompted a surge in support for the team at home. "We have the chance to win a medal at a World Cup, which only one other English team has ever done".

Airport managers said on Facebook: 'Please be aware that there will be no public viewing area to see the England Football Team arrive home so we strongly advise the public not to come to Birmingham Airport as you will not see the team'.
