FIFA World Cup, Group G

Teams: England vs Belgium

Date: 28 June 2018

Time: 20:00

Venue: Kaliningrad Stadium

Both managers have said they will be making changes to their starting line-ups for the match at the Kaliningrad Stadium. 

The two teams are level on points, goals scored and goals conceded, so should this game end in a draw, their disciplinary records will decide who finishes top of the group and who they will play Japan in the next round, while the runners-up will take on Colombia in the knockout rounds.

The English are unbeaten in their previous two meetings against Belgium at the FIFA World Cup, a record which extends to 11 games in all competitions.

The Belgians, however, are unbeaten in their past 11 group matches at the tournament and have also won their previous two matches by a margin of three goals.

The Three Lions have scored eight goals so far at Russia 2018, with captain Harry Kane netting five in five attempts – the only English player to have scored more at one World Cup is Gary Lineker, who found the back of the net on six occasions at the 1986 tournament.
