Danny Rose and Marcus Rashford miss chance to change Gareth Southgate's mind

Harry Kane

It had been viewed as the game no-one wanted to win but Adnan Januzaj's fine finish early in the second half gave Belgium a 1-0 victory over England to secure top spot in Group G as both sides made wholesale changes to their lineups.

Yet he has never wavered from his view that the only policy should be to keep winning, keep building momentum and if Belgium are taking a different view, as appears to be the case, let them feel that way.

Perhaps their exit lays emphasis to the saying "All good things must come to an end" - no one in their right mind would have thought Die Mannschaft would miss out on the round of 16.

Harry Kane's involvement is one of the tricky decisions facing Southgate.

"She's been a massive help to us when I was growing up, and hopefully we can see her as an MP again". They might have conceded two goals in their two games so far but they have been solid at the back.

Southgate rested a cluster of players who had been involved in wins against Tunisia and Panama in England´s opening two games in Russian Federation, including star striker Harry Kane.

"The so-called golden generation wasn't playing today", he said, after leaving the likes of Eden Hazard and Kevin De Bruyne on the bench.

BMW employs over 8,000 people in the United Kingdom and has previously warned that the company had to remain "flexible" about production post-Brexit.

Southgate felt England were slightly unfortunate not to escape with a point against Belgium. "We are in the fortunate position", Southgate said.

"His priority, like ours, is the team and he recognised what we were trying to do". "We do not have to risk him but if he is ready we will put him in".

Regardless of who prevails on Thursday night, the winners and runners up of Group G will face the winners or runners up of Group H, which could be either be Japan, Colombia or Senegal.

"We have no idea who, when or where we will play", he said.

"None of us know if this side of the draw is advantageous or not".

Manchester United will be aiming to challenge for the Premier League title next season as they look to try and win the trophy for the first time since 2013.

England and Belgium will meet in a World Cup match that neither team wants to win.
