Why England will get a big win vs Belgium

This will be the fourth meeting of the two nations in major tournaments.

With the benefit of being the last teams to play in the group stage, both teams will have full knowledge of the knockout bracket by the time they kickoff at 6am - which may lead to the unusual situation of both teams attempting to lose the match.

Football is about winning but when England faceoff against Belgium in their final group match, both teams could be forgiven for not wanting to come out on top.

The final four games of the group stages will be settled by the end of the day, with England and Belgium fighting it out for first place - or perhaps second - in Group G. Japan, Senegal and Colombia are each still hoping to grab one of two qualifying spots in Group H.

"We have no idea who, when or where we will play in the next round, but we're pleased we're in the next round". This means that if there's a draw, the victor will be decided by the fairplay score. Should England draw with Belgium and pick up fewer or the same number of yellow cards in the game, Gareth Southgate's men will win the group on the basis of Fair Play.

They have drawn twice in group stage games, and their last-16 match in the 1990 World Cup saw England win 1-0 after extra-time.

"We have qualified and that was the priority", Martínez told the media.

"Equally, he is the captain and he knows he will be judged on how far we go as a team".

Kane insists that he wants to play in every game as he looks to become the first English player to win the golden boot since Gary Lineker in 1986.

"There are players on yellow cards".

"Three big games on the trot for your big players".

"His scoring record of goals per game is outstanding", said Southgate. That would mean we top the group.

Does the concept of "winning the right way" even matter in this amoral era of capitalism - when the line between right and wrong is usually determined by the bottom line?

Well over 30 games into the World Cup in Russian Federation and goals have been a certainty in all the matches played so far.

William Hill has over 200 markets available on every World Cup match. And both players will be keen to increase their tally tomorrow.

"If it was me I'd be looking to make changes".

They can not be separated through traditional calculations, so the FIFA Fair Play standings based on cautions come into play.
