Belgium – England World Cup Prediction
On Saturday, July 14, 2018, Belgium and England face each other at 16:00 (CET) in the match for third place at the 2018 World Cup. As part of the 21st edition of a World Cup in football in the seventh game of the tournament for both teams to a re-edition of the third round match of Group G, in which it had already gone for both teams practically nothing. It is played in the St. Petersburg Stadium in St. Petersburg, with the odds Belgium against England is favored. Nevertheless, with a good tip on the outcome of the match at attractive profit opportunities in all markets in the classic 3-way system would be a nice win for the Tipper, who puts the right nose here to the day. And so that you can place the best possible tip here, let’s take a closer look at this game for third place in this post. After analyzing the two teams and looking at their balance sheet, we also prepared a final forecast for Belgium against England.
At the same time, the frustration with the missed entry into the 2018 World Cup final is likely to prevail in both nations, because while the Belgian national football team had an almost oppressive field superiority against France, in the end it was also a bit far from their own cleverness, lack of chances and great performance the French keepers failed, the “Three Lions” also lost in a particularly bitter way. After almost 70 minutes of opponents Croatia was nothing to see, the “Kockasti” only came to the compensation, before they showed in stoppage time from their hard-boiled side and made the motherland of football a stroke through the bill, which potentially second English World Cup finals since 1966 must be adjourned for at least four more years. The fact that you can play for the first time since the 1990 World Cup for third place, you have yet to perceive something as a whole then good, because the still very young English team had not been credited with all the potential inevitably. Just like Belgium four years earlier at the 1986 World Cup, the English national football team has lost their only match for third place in a World Cup finals, which is why both teams now have reason enough to be fully involved here. For the Red Devils it would also be the victory in this match to date the best World Cup placement of all time, making you regardless of whether the currently so golden generation in the next few years can still reward with a great title, the entry in the History books would already have been safe and could make something forget the former golden generation of the 80s, at which today every Belgian selection is measured.
Now we want to look at the here and now and the two opponents in this game for third place, which will certainly take both after a maximum of one day of wound licking also very seriously, to take a closer look again. We will then provide you with the best possible World Cup tip for the outcome of the match in the final forecast on Belgium vs. England.
Belgium – A tournament that encourages the future
Really much has the Belgian selection of coaching team Roberto Martinez and Thierry Henry here certainly not to blame. Because after winning the group confidently with three wins, then in the round of 16 still in the regular season a 0-2 deficit could still turn into a 3-2 victory and then even the Brazilian national football team in the quarterfinals 2-1 after Home had sent, one would have measured in terms of the game shares undoubtedly earned the win against France. In the end, it was a mixture of a little too weak chance utilization and the lack of cleverness here and there. Nuances that make the difference in such a long tournament with such a high level in the end. All the more should the Red Devils, who had remained unbeaten in the quarter-final against France, a total of 24 games in a row (19 wins, five draws), so now courage for the future, because already at the European Championship in 2020, this squad, at due to age, no resignations are to be feared, matured for another two years to be an absolute title candidate again. Not least because of this, you should now understand this game for third place as an opportunity to set another exclamation point.
England – 22 minutes were missing to end the semi-final curse
With so many demons of days gone by, the English national football team was able to clean up at this FIFA World Cup 2018 in Russia. For the first time at a World Cup an English selection won a penalty shootout. For the first time in 28 years, they have again reached a World Cup semi-final. And in the form of six-time scorer Harry Kane (Tottenham Hotspur), it should also give an English top scorer at the 21st finals of a football World Cup. In the end, however, the semi-final curse continues to exist, since since the 1966 World Cup in their own country moved into the final and there could secure the only world title of the country, no English team has one of the following four semi-finals at one World Cup or European Championship finals more safely over. And against Croatia was not really much luck – more precisely, only 22 minutes, before the 68th minute of the match the goal of the Fiery more or less came as a logical consequence almost out of nowhere. Much had the “Three Lions” to this point namely not admitted and the game since the opening goal of Kieran Trippier (Tottenham Hotspur) had firmly in hand. In the end it was with the extremely young team of Gareth Southgate but also the portion of cleverness and cold-heartedness that had been missing in the end, because playfully the Kockasti had been played at half time one downright on the wall and had received several chances, with the 2 : 0-lead prematurely to make the lid on it. The motherland of football is also about to say goodbye to a potential third party. And it’s clear that this remarkable generation of English footballers still has a few finals ahead of them, where they are increasingly likely to be among the favorites, because the performances in Russia definitely make you want more.
Belgium – England Record – Previous meetings
There have been 25 international appearances between Belgium and England, and the “Three Lions” lead this direct comparison with 16 wins very clearly, while the Red Devils bring it in five draws only four games won. However, one of these victories was only two weeks ago in the third group match of the preliminary round, as it had given the duel of two B-selections at the end of a 1-0 victory for the Belgian national football team. Can I also refill in comparison of the two A-teams?
Overall, we think so, because even in the odds Belgium is favored against England. Perhaps also because the Belgians here have shown the overall clearly more convincing performance at the 2018 World Cup, while England has deliberately calculated the defeat in the preliminary round to some extent in order to make the easier way in the knockout round. Phase to get. And here were the victories against Colombia and Sweden once mandatory victories, while the Red Devils in the form of Brazil have cut out the absolute top favorites in impressive style. We therefore believe in our prediction on Belgium versus England that Roberto Martinez’s selection also wins this game against the motherland of football and, in third place, knows how to bid farewell to the best ever World Cup result of all time.
