29 June 2018

A superb second-half strike from Adnan Januzaj gave Belgium a 1-0 win over England on Thursday to see them top World Cup Group G with a perfect record and consign England to second place. Both sides already assured of going through to the last 16. Belgium coach Roberto Martinez fielded Thomas Vermaelen at right-back after injury and sent on central defensive talisman Vincent Kompany near the end to complete a clean sweep with all 20 outfield players in the squad having played in Russia. Belgium will face Japan in Rostov on-Don on Monday. England will play Colombia in Moscow on Tuesday in the knockout phase.
