The result secured Belgium's best finish ever at a World Cup, while for England, the fourth place matches its 1990 feat as the best result since winning it all in 1966. This Belgian team should be proud of what it achieved in Russian Federation, but surely they will also be haunted by their inability to finish the job. He commands his defence well and will have to be in top form against the likes of Eden Hazard, Kevin de Bruyne and Romelu Lukaku.

Thomas Meunier took advantage of some slopping defending to score the opener on four minutes before Hazard gave Phil Jones the slip to finish off Gareth Southgate's side on 82 minutes. Belgium played superbly this World Cup but unfortunately for them they came up short against an equally impressive French side. In the first meeting, both teams had already qualified for the knockout stage out of Group G. But on Saturday, the two teams meet again with nothing more than third place on the line, in the World Cup consolation match that will live stream from Saint Petersburg.
Another superb display by arguably the tournament's best right sided defender, showing a strikers instinct when he got in to open the scores early on.

67th minute, 1-0 Belgium: England's crosses into the box have been poor.
Their best chance in the first half was a strike by Harry Kane that went wide in the 22nd minute. "To be able to finish third, the best finish for the Belgian national team, would be an achievement we salute more than individual awards".
"The lads couldn't have given any more".
Just one goal separated each team from their respective opponents, which will hopefully be enough motivation for the two countries to end their tournament campaign on a high note.

Hazard added the other off a pass from Kevin De Bruyne in the 82nd. Meunier scored and Youri Tielemans dominated the midfield.
