England vs Belgium (2018 FIFA World Cup)

Tonight's match takes place at 7pm United Kingdom time in Kaliningrad (where fans are pictured).

You would think that the first priority for both teams in a football match is to win.

He replaced Tottenham full back Kieran Trippier in a much-changed starting XI for the Three Lions. It's been a unusual end to an absorbing World Cup group stage. "As team mates we know each other better than other opposition". Brazil get knocked out in the second round anyway.

Historically, planning too far ahead has been a very risky game and many teams over the years have tripped up when resting players or taking the foot off the pedal to prepare for later matches.

Results elsewhere and the way the knockout draw has fallen so far have led to widespread suggestions the runner up out of England and Belgium would be in a better position to blaze a trail into the latter stages.

But for now - England vs. Colombia is set for Tuesday July 3 (7 pm BST KO) from Otkrytie Arena, Moscow, Russia.

"The players tonight gave everything".

The Detroit Tigers have fired pitching coach Chris Bosio for making insensitive comments, the team announced. Bosio was named the Tigers' pitching coach November 2, 2017, after Ron Gardenhire was named the new manager.

While a match against Colombia is likely more daunting than the Japan clash to which Group G winners Belgium can look forward, the rewards will be waiting for England if they get past their South American opposition. The last-16 ties start Saturday, with France taking on Argentina in Kazan and Uruguay facing Cristiano Ronaldo´s Portugal in Sochi.

Hello and welcome to our coverage of the game nearly every football fan has been looking forward to, England vs Belgium. Both teams have won their two matches with a total of eight goals scored and two conceded.

"All players with a yellow card and with minor injuries, they will not play". England now sits on top, with only one yellow card versus Belgium's three bookings.

It probably didn't sit well with Belgium's Michy Batshuayi either seen as we watched him celebrate his team's goal by kicking the ball causing it toricochet right back into his face.

And Will Tomlinson, 34, from Retford, in Nottinghamshire, said he hoped for an English influx as the team progressed through the tournament.

Belgium has announced it will rest most of its star players and England manager Gareth Southgate is also keeping many of his first-line stars on the bench.
