Belgium Team, Predicted Playing XI vs England

Over 35,000 teams have been selected and here's how the Sky Sports readers think England should line-up at the Kaliningrad Stadium...

Despite top spot in the group still being up for grabs, though, Southgate said neither he nor his team would be tempted into playing the long game and thinking about who they might face out of Group H when they open up knockout-round play.

As it stands - thanks to a few quirky results - one side of the draw appears considerably more hard.

Germany's Group F exit has blown one side of the draw wide open, but Southgate said his side feared no one after making an encouraging start in Russian Federation.

So it would be beneficial for both teams to avoid winning the group to end up in the easier side of the draw.

That was despite the fact England have not won a knockout game since the World Cup in 2006. If the game ends in a draw, fair-play points will decide Group G's victor. If that is tied, then the victor will be decided by a coin toss.

Both sides - packed with Premier League talent - have sailed through Group G, winning their two games and are now in the curious situation of weighing up whether they even want to top the section.

"At the moment we are qualified and I think that was the priority that we were chasing for", he said.

Luis Suarez Free-Kick Give Uruguay Lead Against Russia
Match-winner against Egypt, Jose Gimenez is out for Uruguay , whilst Alan Dzagoev is still out with a hamstring injury. Two goals in the first 23 minutes and a red card for Russian Federation a little later killed off the game early.

"We want to win the game".

"That's the reality. We wanted to qualify, we've done that". The wing-back spots could go to Adnan Januzaj on the right (since Meunier is on a yellow card) and Nacer Chadli on the left (with Yannick Carrasco rested).

"I said to him, "Alright, we've got 10 minutes to go, when I give a free-kick against you" - and I knew I would because he's that sort of player - 'just leather the ball 50 yards away and I can caution you for dissent'". Players have been in very demanding games.

England and Belgium will battle it out in a first-place play-off on Thursday evening and plenty of players are set to be rested for the game.

England manager Gareth Southgate did not confirm or deny any team news at his press conference but was full of praise for Kane.

Unlike Southgate, the former Everton and Wigan manager said he was approaching Thursday's game with one eye firmly on the knockout rounds.

"All players with a yellow card and with minor injuries, they will not play".

"We have no idea who, when or where we will play in the next round but we are pleased that we're in the next round".
