    Second time these two meet in a match they may not care that much about. Still, there's some bragging rights to play for and the players will want to make a good account of themselves. Hopefully we get a match where both just decide to say **** defence and go full out attack.

    Also Welbeck should play 90 min imo. Kane can swallow flies on the bench.

    Belgium depends on Hazard, if he thinks third place is worthy we may see a game. If not expect long ball from both sides

    Harry Kane to score with his butt

    Think Welbz will start and score, and I will hate Southgate for it.

    He needed to bring on Welbeck for Young in the semi final

    Edit : Young had a good tournament but he was spent

    Belgium might struggle here.

    Love my new tagline. It will serve as a reminder of the Croatia game

    Besides, the players are good at coming third in a two horse race

    Realistically, they will destroy us if they give a **** about this game.

    The fact that they attempted this based on a myth is pretty funny, but the fact that Rashford was offside when Lingard passed it to him just makes it ****ing hilarious. :lol:

    I have no idea why you wouldn't play strongest team & get the 3rd place.

    Majority of this England setup have won **** all & will win **** all at the clubs they play for.

    Seen retired players talk about third place medal as best achievement.

    You’re clearly enjoying kicking the English, on an English teams forum.

    There were over a hundred teams starting out on this 2018 World Cup journey. Coming in the top 4 for a country that’s won nothing for so long, can’t really be worthy of your ridicule, surely.

    Third place would be a great acheivement for all of the England players as they are young it's very rare that you can say "my first medal/trophy is at a WORLD CUP!" That's still really good and wold love to see DAT GUY with s'thing to smile about and start the Arsenal season with a pre-season win haha!

    Still think Belgium will win though (unfortunately they have better players).

    if you are wondering how seriously the Belgium takes this game, I'm here to tell you that I had a couple of old family friends for lunch today from flemish part of Belguim, and THEY WERE PUMPED for the game today. they left early to make sure they'll watch the game in their hotel room, and they want that bronce BAD.

    England better want it as much if you guys want to bring it home. I'll be rooting for England because I like this young team's story and the weird and funny I't comming home song, but from what I hear from English people here in Croatia - they don't really care if they win or lose - well, Belgium people DO care, and I'm sure their players will give it all.

    Yeah, Southgate is saying they care about it but he said the same thing in the 3rd group game, I get the impression the Belgians care more than the English, which is a mistake imo. But we'll see.
