It was arguably England's toughest game up to yet in the Russian World Cup against Belgium, let's face it.

By contrast, should the victor of Group G get past the round of 16, they could meet Brazil in the quarterfinals, with France, Argentina, Portugal and Uruguay among the possible semifinal opponents.

"Suddenly winning the group looked a very palatable option for the English".

Hello and welcome to our coverage of the game nearly every football fan has been looking forward to, England vs Belgium. "We have 20 outfield players who have played in the World Cup and that's extremely beneficial for the feeling in our camp".

Sports data company Gracenote has given England a 24 percent chance of reaching the semifinals should they win the group, which increases to 35 percent should England finish second.

In election victory speech, Erdogan says Turkey will advance in Syria
In his victory speech, he said: "The victor of this election is each and every individual among my 81 million citizens". Ince, who complained that it was an unfair election, accepted Erdogan's victory during a news conference Monday.

English World Cup self-pity often centers on the national team's semi-final defeat by Germany on penalties at Italia '90 but Belgians have their own painful memories of 28 years ago at the hands of England and now they want payback.

Having booked their place in the round of sixteen in style with a record-breaking 6-1 win over Panama, England is likely to make some changes ahead of their game against Belgium. In theory, with one or more back in the side for the next game against Colombia, it should make the Three Lions a lot more unsafe than they were in this one.

Time will tell as to the pros and cons and finishing first and second but both England and Belgium will expect to overcome Colombia and Japan respectively in the round of 16. Neither team is a lock to win its next game, of course, but it's easy to see why England won't be that disheartened by its loss.

The Red Devils are unbeaten in their previous 11 World Cup Group matches.

Even if neither side wanted to win Thursday's game, that didn't stop the contest from producing a moment of excellence courtesy of Belgium's Adnan Januzaj.

We've said it once we'll say it again - it's coming home, LADs.

Japan, on four points alongside Senegal, take on Poland in Volgograd while the African team play Colombia, who have three points, in Samara.

Robert Martinez and Southgate made wholesale changes. "We came into the game wanting to win it, obviously we never won it, but we are still in the round of 16 and something to look forward to".

He said: "In a World Cup you're going to come up against the best teams in the world".

When the England squad got out of bed today they had no idea if they will be playing Japan, Senegal or Colombia next week, but they will know their potential opponents when they kick-off in Kaliningrad at 7pm (UK time). The last-16 ties start Saturday, with France taking on Argentina in Kazan and Uruguay facing Cristiano Ronaldo´s Portugal in Sochi.

Systrom resisted talking advertising on IGTV at the launch, but you could bet the company will not make IGTV an ad-free portal. However, Instagram says that anyone will be able to create and upload content on IGTV through the new app or on the web.

How both sides approach the match will be a good indicator of their respective philosophies and team culture.
