Gary Cahill tells fans not to worry about England's Belgium defeat

David Platt celebrates scoring his memorable goal against Belgium at Italia 90

England barely seemed troubled by losing.

With the victory, Belgium gets what appears to be an easier match in the next round against Japan on Monday in Rostov-on-Don.

Not only that, the Colombians have pedigree after a run to the quarterfinal stage at the 2014 World Cup on the back of some stunning performances from their star man James Rodriguez. "It could be the game no-one wants to watch!"

"Colombians had bought up 75 per cent of the tickets, filling the place with a Latin American rhythm and an unceasing broiling racket, which reached a crescendo when they took the lead late in the second half".

After that, if England weren't knocked out, we would've been up against Uruguay, Portugal, France, Argentina, Brazil, or Mexico.

I thought England would beat Panama, but they did it in some style.

"Suddenly winning the group looked a very palatable option for the English".

The final day of World Cup group play has already invoked the complicated procedure once, and the Belgium-England outcome could cause it to be used a second time.

Southgate defended his decision to make eight changes to the side which beat Panama 6-1 and left captain and top-scorer Harry Kane on the bench for the full 90 minutes.

England completed this stage in the second spot with six points.

England coach Gareth Southgate and his Belgian counterpart Roberto Martinez have played down such talk.

Mom who confronted Pruitt: "I'm glad he took the hint" and resigned
Tom Carper, the top Democrat on the Environment and Public Works Committee, said Pruitt made the EPA "a punchline". Wednesday night, Pruitt was on the White House lawn, watching fireworks explode over the Washington sky.

If it's a win, the squad will then go up against Sweden or Switzerland, depending on which team goes through.

"We don't suffer for (the loss)", Southgate said.

"He's a fearless manager and he makes big decisions in big times", Maguire said of Southgate, who's been criticised for his lineup.

Southgate's lineup, including nine reserves, said more about the importance he placed on the Belgium game than anything he could say but he maintained his decisions had more to do with keeping first-choice players fresh than picking an opponent. The leading scorer in Russian Federation with five goals watched the match from the bench. So was Romelu Lukaku, who has scored four for Belgium.

The DR Congo global posted a photo of Romelu Lukaku on the bench with his hand his his head alongside the caption: "S*** guys we weren't meant to do that".

The two teams have had a relatively stress-free progression from Group G and been able to rotate their squad, but their potential rivals have not.

England goalkeeper Jordan Pickford made an early save on a shot from Youri Tielemans.

On the other end, Kane's replacement up front for England, Jamie Vardy, tried his luck with a header. Marouane Fellaini comes into midfield and Thorgan Hazard, Eden's brother, also starts.

If the script was to avoid winning, Januzaj didn't read it.

Since bursting onto the scene as a teenager under David Moyes at Old Trafford, Januzaj has drifted through loans at Borussia Dortmund and Sunderland and is now attempting to rebuild his career at Real Sociedad.
