England Belgium Match Preview 

Roberto Martinez has effectively tossed an indication he'd rest murmur primary stars, including Romelu Lukaku, Eden Hazard and Dries Mertens, for the Thursday excursion against the Three Lions. 

Lukaku purportedly harmed the lower leg tendon in the 5-2 triumph over Panama, Mertens additionally has lower leg issues, while Hazard stressed his calf. 

On the off chance that Colombia go on and win the best spot in their particular gathering on Thursday evening, we could envision these wounds strangely vanishing, yet that is unlikable situation given Japan have the shaft position there. In such conditions, we can expect Gareth Southgate resting his best scorer Harry Kane too on the event. 

In any case, how about we return to how these two preferences did as such far in the competition. Belgium flew out as fundamental contenders for the specific best of the gathering after consecutive wins by three-objective edge against any semblance of Panama and Tunisia. 

Nonetheless, England got back in the challenge subsequent to pulverizing Los Canaleros 6-1 with a cap trap from Tottenham Hotspur striker Harry Kane to push forward of Belgium by the slimmest of edges, a reasonable play run the show.

The Three Lions have a positive no holds barred record in matches with Belgium. They won three, drew two and lost one of past six gatherings with the Three Lions. 

The primary H2H conflict was an incredible one. It occurred at the 1954 World Cup when the European opponents shared crown jewels in an astonishing 4-4 attract the gathering stage. 

Groups additionally shared riches (1-1) after 26 years at the European Championship, while England at long last got their first prevail upon Belgium ten years after the fact (1-0 after additional time) in the R16 at the World Cup.

England vs Belgium Predictions 

England unmistakably helped up their certainty on Sunday, securing their greatest edge triumph ever at World Cups. 

Gareth Southgate has a tremendous choice to make on the day. Should he send the most grounded side conceivable on the pitch to handle Belgium and keep the force or it is more intelligent to tank the issue and rest players for the round of 16 tie. 

It's difficult to go out with any sort of forecasts in such conditions. We see the incentive in moving the draw at 3.20 realizing that none of the sides will really need to win the match if Japan complete first in Group H. 

It shouldn't be a high-scoring spine chiller, which means we will then again run with the Under 2.5 objectives FT wager at the chances of 1.72.
