The big match tie in group G between Belgium against England might not mean a lot for both, but they were still very keen in picking up all three points to ensure which sides got that group leader status.
Neither teams were putting on their best possible line up for the game as important players being rested knowing that both nations have gone through into the knock out stage of World Cup.
The Red Devils still field a relative talented squad though as their depth were really shown with the amount of talent they’re still able to play despite resting their best players.
It was a quite interesting battle, though none of the two teams looking extremely better than the other, especially during the first 45 minutes which ended goalless.
After the break, both sides continue to play their game, pushing forward in search for goals without forcing it too much.
Eventually, it was Belgium that got things going when Adnan Januzaj puts them in front with his curling shot on 51 minutes.
Trailing by a goal somewhat triggered England to push forward slightly harder as they naturally want to be topping the group.
However, Roberto Martinez’s men did well enough in keeping their slender lead until the final whistle was blown.
This result means that Belgium booked a ticket to face Japan in the next round, while Three Lions set for an intriguing tie against Colombia.
