England vs Belgium World Cup 2018 play-off kick-off time TV channel and more

Eden Hazard (C) of Belgium scores the 2-0 against England goalkeeper Jordan Pickford during the FIFA World Cup 2018 third place soccer match between Belgium and England in St.Petersburg, Russia, 14 July 2018.

Meunier returned from suspension and Youri Tielemans got a start ahead of Marouane Fellaini in midfield with the Belgians fielding their strong front three of Lukaku, Kevin de Bruyne and Eden Hazard.

It was the first third-place play-off to feature two teams that had met already in the group stage, and it featured much of the strangeness of that dead-rubber Group G clash all those weeks ago in Kaliningrad, with changes made on both sides from the teams that lost their respective semi-finals.

At least Kane is a step nearer the Golden Boot, after closest rival Romelu Lukaku, two goals behind, appeared to have lead in his despite having the chances he needed to draw level before he was substituted on the hour-mark.

England's encouraging World Cup performance ended with successive defeats as Belgium claimed third spot in Russian Federation. Their previous best showing was in 1986 when they finished in fourth place.

England matched its best World Cup result - fourth in 1990 - since winning the tournament for the only time in 1966.

Belgium and England both leave the World Cup happy to have reached the semifinals.

"In terms of mentality, it's obviously been a really hard couple of days for us".

But, the Red Devils' run came to a grinding halt against France, who beat them 1-0 in the semi-finals earlier this week.

European teams have claimed third place at the past nine World Cups.

Where Belgium go from here largely depends on how many of Roberto Martinez's older players are able to hang on for another crack at a major tournament.

Airport managers said on Facebook: 'Please be aware that there will be no public viewing area to see the England Football Team arrive home so we strongly advise the public not to come to Birmingham Airport as you will not see the team'. However, we'd expect Lukaku to start and when Belgium score a few he generally gets on the scoresheet.

Gareth Southgate's side will play for the bronze medal in St Petersburg at 3pm, giving England fans one more chance to watch their side in the sunshine after the disappointment of their defeat to Croatia.

With England pushing forward, Meunier almost produced one of the goals of the tournament, his crisp volley from a Dries Mertens cross drawing an excellent one-handed stop from Pickford.

What now for Belgium's "Golden Generation" of players?

England: Pickford 6, Jones 5, Stones 7, Maguire 6, Trippier 7, Dier 6, Delph 6, Rose 6, Loftus-Cheek 6, Sterling 5, Kane 5. We had them on the ropes for the first half-hour of that and we just couldn't get a goal.

Tottenham team-mate Toby Alderweireld was similarly wasteful when he hooked over the bar shortly after the half-hour, although Belgium's only real setback by half-time was the loss of Chadli to an apparent hamstring injury.

Once Alli and Lingard introduced in the second half, England's game picked up pace and they were creating a lot. But.
