Belgium and England meet in penultimate game at Russia 2018

The penultimate game of the 2018 FIFA World Cup will take centerstage on Saturday as England takes on Beglium in the third place playoff in St Petersburg. Belgium are in this fixture after losing 1-0 to France in the semi-finals while in the other semi-final the Three Lions England lost 2-1 to Croatia in extra time.

A victory for England would secure their second best finish in a FIFA World Cup after their triumph in 1966. 3rd place for Belgium would be their best finish in a World Cup as their previous best was 4th in 1986 in Mexico. Belgian defender Thomas Meunier is available after missing the semi-final defeat by France through suspension.

For England, Kieran Trippier is the only doubt after picking up a groin injury against Croatia in the semi-finals. Live coverage of this game can be seen live on TVJ and TVJ Sports Network with radio coverage on Hitz 92 FM 9:00 am.
