Belgium Beats England, but Faces Tougher World Cup Bracket


Adnan Januzaj nestled into left-footed shot in the second half to give a second-string Belgium a 1-0 triumph over a second-string Britain on Thursday. The win proceeded with Belgium's solid begin to the World Container — it joined Croatia and Uruguay as the main groups to win every one of the three amusements in the gathering stage — yet it set the Red Fallen angels on a conceivably undeniably troublesome way in the knockouts.

Belgium won in Kaliningrad notwithstanding rolling out nine improvements to its lineup, and in the midst of an exchange about whether it may be smarter to complete second in the gathering as opposed to winning it.

With its triumph, Belgium won its third diversion at the World Glass yet progressed to what most consider the harder side of the knockout-round section, one that incorporates Brazil, Mexico, France, Argentina, Uruguay and Portugal.

Britain, which rolled out eight improvements to its beginning lineup with an end goal to rest its stars, presumably will see an incentive in landing where it did. Its side of the knockout round incorporates Spain and Croatia, yet it would not see both of them until the elimination rounds — if the English propel that far.

The Britain Colombia champ would play the triumph of Sweden-Switzerland in the quarterfinals.

"We need to win each amusement and we're disillusioned we couldn't do that today," Britain midfielder Eric Dier said. "I thought it was all in all an even diversion. We made some great possibilities. We expected to complete one of them, that was every one of that was missing truly."

Januzaj's objective was a snapshot of individual brilliance in a match that didn't indicate a lot of it. Gathering a ball on Belgium's conservative, he slice inside Danny Rose to get this show on the road the ball to his left side foot and twisted his shot high and around the plunging goalkeeper Jordan Pickford.

In the event that Britain pronounces itself fine with the result — it attempted to win a match numerous said it would be in an ideal situation losing, and ended up with a best way in the knockouts at any rate — it didn't find a player that will give Gareth Southgate interruption to consider a change when he makes out his lineup for Colombia. Britain needed creative energy and, without striker Harry Kane and advances Dele Alli and Raheem Sterling, anything looking like genuine threat in advance.

Belgium Mentor Roberto Martinez got some abrasive work in the midfield from Marouane Fellaini, Moussa Dembele and Nacer Chadli. In any case, Belgium's best face is an assaulting one, and when Martinez gets Kevin De Bruyne, Eden Peril and Romelu Lukaku back in the following round, he and his group will hope to make a profound run, notwithstanding the heavyweights that anticipate on Belgium's side of the section. To begin with, however, comes Japan.

"You can't design the perfect situation; you've seen huge countries as of now dispensed with," Martinez said. "We have to take a gander at ourselves."
