Third Place Play-off: Belgium vs England Team News, Preview, Probable Line Up, Betting Odds and TV Guide

Belgium and England will take on each other to clinch the third-place before returning to the homeland.


World Cup 2018 finally has its two finalists in France and Croatia following a series of upsets and surprises, but there will be one more contest before the grand finale when England and Belgium, two defeated semifinalists, will contest each other for nation’s pride in a less significant third-place play-off tie.

Both England and Belgium shared the same group at the start of the campaign and locked horns in another insignificant outing having already qualified for a place in the knockouts. Belgium clinched a narrow 1-0 victory and the Three Lions, who exhibited significant upsurge by making it to the semis against all odds, will now seek a revenge prior to their return from Russia.
