Belgium's Romelu Lukaku to recover from injury in time to face England

Posted June 28, 2018

Southgate has already bettered Hodgson by leading England to the last 16 of the World Cup, ahead of the final Group G game against Belgium here, and the FA is delighted with his management. Against a defence as porous as Panama's has proved in their first two games of the tournament, he could well add to that tally.

"No matter what I can say, actually getting the guys on the field is far more powerful than anything else I can talk to them about".

Well over 30 games into the World Cup in Russian Federation and goals have been a certainty in all the matches played so far.

And with Belgium and England both already through to the knockout stage, Martinez conceded he could change his entire outfield side for the encounter in Kaliningrad. The Belgium coach is taking this game very seriously, but he intends to make the most of his team's early qualification by giving a few starters a breather and allowing his fringe players more time on the pitch. "We have to keep building that belief and building those experiences".

"So I felt then that I had to make sure that if there are opportunities in life you have got to go for it".

Southgate never announces his team officially until an hour before kick-off but he is acutely aware that Kane wants to be involved and has had to balance his captain's wishes with the possibility England's first knockout game could take place on Monday, four days after the Belgium game.
