Lukaku for England game, says coach Roberto Martinez

Panama World Cup commentators can't contain emotion during national anthem

Panama World Cup commentators can't contain emotion during national anthem

Belgium are likely to rest midfield maestro Kevin De Bruyne and possibly striker Romelu Lukaku for their last World Cup group match against England, coach Roberto Martinez said on Monday.

"There will be opportunities for other players".

He's tied with Cristiano Ronaldo as the leading scorer in the World Cup.

However, those records are nearly identical too, with England now on two yellows at the moment, while Belgium have picked up three. Southgate said he was fairly indifferent on that.

"We don't want to take our foot off the gas with the performances we are putting in right now", England midfielder Ruben Loftus-Cheek said after the 6-1 pummeling of Panama. "Other teams are bigger than us".

This means that should the final group game between the two sides end as a draw, none of the usual methods would be applicable for deciding who came out on top.

Search underway for teenage soccer team trapped in Thai cave
Eleven boys have their photo taken before they entered the cave in Chiang Rai's Mae Sai district on Saturday and disappeared. A mother who reported her son never returned from soccer practice that day set off the search.

Hazard's penalty - his first goal at a World Cup finals - was the 59th goal scored in Russian Federation this summer and the 13th to be netted from the penalty spot.

"We need to look at Lukaku's ankle".

"He's someone that wants to learn i'm really happy to give him advice". I think back to Euro "96 and we got on a roll and there was a feeling of, 'we're invincible here".

But Southgate is also mindful of England finally beating one of the stronger nations in a World Cup.

While Martinez stressed that he will be sending his players out to win, the former Wigan and Everton boss said that he would not play anybody with an injury or any of his three players who are on yellow cards. "We're ahead by a yellow card or something but we want to go and try to win the game and take the momentum into the knockout stages".

That was a sentiment echoed in the English press: "Always unsafe to try and finish second as you think passage might be easier", wrote the Daily Mirror's John Cross. "I've said all along, I don't want to limit what they feel is possible and that's still how I feel".
