WC Match day thread - Belgium v England (3rd place)
Some may have forgotten, most won't be interested - but the World Cup has the joyless celebration of a third place play off match to come and England are in it this Saturday.

Our squad players will get a run out against Belgiums reserves... Again. With the players minds no doubt on the upcoming season they will surely offer a masterclass of how to avoid injury and coast their way through 90 minutes in the hope it won't go to extra time.

I can't wait Biggrin

I hope Southgate changes the whole side so that squad players can say they have played at a World Cup. Also it might piss off FIFA which can only be a good thing.

Southgate will do. The clubs of those players will want it too!

The likes of Cahill, Rose, Arnold, Dier, Loftus Cheek, Vardy, Wellbeck will all get a game.

It was reported on Sky sports News that Southgate is going to pick his strongest available line up. Whether is that is just a clever turn of phrase as the main players will be unavailable remains to be seen...

Well, I just wonder how many on this forum would have thought four weeks ago that England would be in the 3rd/4th place play off match, I know I certainly didn't, a game is a game so I hope they win tomorrow.
I think the fans who travelled out there are worthy of a mention too, thoughts of violence and an expected mediocre performance from an inexperienced team of youngsters didn't deter them, must have travelled a few miles to see the matches, well done to them all for going.
The team might not be the finished article but credit to Southgate, he gone them playing for the shirt something that has been missing for some time, he would have learnt a good deal from this tournament so the rest of the footballing world best look out.

Iam clinging onto the World Cup, dont want it to end. It's not like we have a club season to get excited about, just more drawn out bullshit.

Euros U19s starts on Tuesday Chris! Paul Simpson in charge. Think all the matches are streamed on YouTube by UEFA

Really don't get why Southgate would persevere with Sterling and not give Rashford a go?

Well worked goal for Belgium although not surprising England midfield went missing
