When is Belgium v/s England 3rd place play-off match in FIFA World Cup 2018?

"The honest thing is, it's not a game any team wants to play in", said Southgate, whose side has drawn praise for the way they have briefly united a country bitterly divided over Brexit. "There's a lot talked about relationships between our two countries _ but on a personal level and mixing with the people of Russian Federation, we couldn't have been more welcome". "We're still learning. We're still getting better", England striker Harry Kane said.

England had their moments in the second half with Eric Dier seeing a chip cleared off the line by Toby Alderweireld after beating Thibaut Courtois.

England matched its best World Cup result - fourth in 1990 - since winning the tournament for the only time in 1966.

"We'll either go home having shown improvement and equaled every team that has left our shores", Southgate told ITV before the match.

Memorably unmemorable is perhaps the only way to describe the third-place play-off, one that shouldn't even exist and hopefully won't when the tournament expands to 48 teams in 2026.

Neutral fans should reserve their pity for Belgium, the most deserving side not featuring in tomorrow's World Cup final. Pickford had a brilliant game once again and a delightful counter from Belgium was stopped from becoming the goal of the tournament by the Everton goalkeeper's outstretched hand.

However, the Red Devils sealed the win with eight minutes remaining as Kevin de Bruyne's pass found Eden Hazard, who calmly slotted past Pickford. Croatia is attempting to become the first "new" nation to win the World Cup since 2010 when Spain did it, and become only the ninth team ever to win the most prestigious and most important championship in sports.

"Against the very best teams, we've come up short, but we've had a wonderful adventure and some experiences that will stand this group of players and staff in really good stead for the future". "We don't want to wait another 20-odd years to get into another major semifinal".

The set-piece success has been celebrated after nine goals were scored in Russian Federation from deadball situations, but it's masked genuine deficiencies from open play.

England's squad are one of their youngest ever to appear at the finals, so while the sense of the last chance is not there, one of a missed opportunity is. Belgium are obviously a good team.
