Three points on Belgium's 2-0 win over England in the third-place game of the 2018 World Cup.
Harry Kane still leads all World Cup goal-scorers with six goals, but Romelu Lukaku isn't too far behind with four. To beat Brazil. They've lost to Spain in Roberto's first game, and France in the semi-final.
However, he insisted that will not alter England´s approach as they look to achieve their best finish since they won the competition in 1966.
England is the current world champion at the Under-20 and Under-17 levels, and the challenge now will be to find playing time for those players at the club level, whether it's in the Premier League or in other leagues like Germany's Bundesliga. Harry Kane kept his place as he hunted the Golden Boot.
With only 12 global caps so far, Trippier has already scored once in the World Cup and has played a big part in England's set-pieces goals.
Go to Telemundo instead, if you want Spanish coverage. They produce a scintillating counter-attacking move, as De Bruyne releases Hazard, he crosses for Meunier whose first-time shot is brilliantly stopped by Pickford. And in India, Sony Liv will stream the World Cup match, as will the Jio TV app for fans who want to watch England vs. Belgium on mobile devices. Both rivals can add to their tally and overtake Kane and he is desperate to play in England's final match of the tournament on Saturday afternoon to prevent them doing so.
British leaders have essentially boycotted the World Cup over the poisonings of two British citizens and a former Russian spy and his daughter living in the United Kingdom, which British officials blame on the Russian government, a claim the Kremlin rejects.
"It is what it is and so we will try to play that game with as much pride as we can and try to finish on a high".
Both sides will be featuring in their second third-place match, with Belgium losing to France in 1980, followed by England losing to Italy in 1984. England and Belgium have different answers. It will be shown live on ITV and via the ITV Hub app.
Belgium took the lead in the fourth minute through Thomas Meunier and scored again through captain Eden Hazard in the 82nd minute to take the third-place playoff. Thomas Meunier comes back in to replace Mousa Dembele, while Youri Tielemans comes in at the expense of Marouane Fellaini in the centre.
