What do we know about the Belgium line-up?
Belgium has all the ingredients for success at the World Cup.
Romelu Lukaku leads the attack, supported by the creative genius of Eden Hazard and with Kevin De Bruyne pulling the strings in midfield. Thibaut Courtois is in goal.
But for all the exceptional talent, Belgium keep underwhelming at major tournaments, only reaching the quarter-finals at the 2014 World Cup and 2016 European Championship.
There are doubts throughout the team. Center-back Vincent Kompany spends much of his time in the treatment room at Manchester City. Too many Belgian players have morphed into glorified benchwarmers these days after falling out of favor, including Toby Alderweireld at Tottenham, Thomas Meunier at Paris Saint-Germain and Thomas Vermaelen at Barcelona.
Axel Witsel and Yannick Ferreira Carrasco do have a lock on their starting position for their clubs, but in the modest Chinese league.
It all makes the road to World Cup success seem far from clear for Fifa’s third-ranked team.
World Cup 2018 – England v Beglium – What are they saying?
Belgium goalkeeper Thibaut Courtois on facing England in Russia:
“I don’t want to go back to England in July with a losing feeling. I want to win – I think everyone feels that way,” said Courtois.
Spurs defender Jan Vertonghen agrees, saying: “It’s going to be a special game – special because I know a lot of the players.
“It’s going to be interesting to see the guys on such a stage. My team-mates (at Spurs) are my friends so it’s going to be very funny.”

World Cup 2018 – England v Belgium – What’s our prediction?
After demolishing Panama in the previous game, this should a great test for the Lions to prepare for the last 16. The England team look fresh, full of confidence and playing without fear which should stand us in good stead.
Belguim though has arguably the best individual squad in the world cup this year but can Martinez pull this team together? on their day they could take anyone apart but with a quick start and an early goal, it could provide the pressure to test the team spirit.
Could be described as a rubber hammer match I believe a win could prove hugely valuable to confidence for either team going into the next phase of the tournament.
Predicted score: England 2 Belguim 2.
