Third Place Play-off, FIFA World Cup 2018 match | Match Day -30
FIFA World Cup 2018
The worst thing for any team in the world cup is to fight for the Third Place playoff in a world cup. Both Belgium and England were so close to make history but yet they were denied a spot in the final in Moscow. However, this is really not that disrespectful because to end up in the top four teams of the FIFA World Cup 2018 is also an honourable act.
Southgate’s England had already proved their point. They didn’t start the world cup with the dream of winning it nor did they expect to reach the semi finals but when they got so close they wanted to believe in their dream. They were even replicating their golden history of the 1966 FIFA World Cup when they won it but luck had other ideas. Instead of football coming home, they were sent packing home by the Croatians in the semi final. England had an early lead in the game from a beautiful Kieran Trippier’s free kick from outside the penalty box but Croatia did find their equalizer when more than20 minutes of the game remained. The game went on to extra time where poor defending from England led an Ivan Perisic deflected head to Mario Mandzukic, who finished it off in style and booked a spot in the final to play France. England now would want to go for the Bronze medal and also Harry Kane’s run for the Golden Boot will be decided in this game if he can scores one more.
The Belgians started their world cup journey with England and now they would be ending their FIFA World Cup 2018 run against England. In their previous clash in the group, Belgium won the game 1-0 and now they would want to give something to their fans to cheer for one last time in this world cup. The golden generation started making people believe that they can lift the trophy and their excellence against the Brazilians made them a very powerful contender to reach the final but in the semi final against France, Belgium failed to create not so many chances and fell short to Les Bleus. They would now come into this game looking for redemption and to create history. The likes of Kevin de Bruyne, Eden Hazard would want to give it all in this game after having not so good day in their last outing.
The Third Place Playoff games have always seen plenty of goals scored on both ends and we bet that there will be plenty of goals in this game as well. Our prediction of the score would be Belgium 3- 2 England.
FIFA World Cup 2018, Third Place Playoff is to be played at Stade Roi Baudouin, at 1500 hours in Local time. A thrilling game awaits everyone on Match Day 30 for everyone and can be watched live on Sony LIV.

Belgium: Thomas Meunier is back from his suspension but it is already too late for his nation. His absence was felt in the semi final as Martinez had to shift to new tactics and the lack of back -up plan cost them the game. Romelu Lukaku is expected to start in the front despite having a terrible day in his last outing. Yannick Carrasco and Dries Mertens may feature in this game.
England: Southgate may opt for a similar starting lineup that started against Croatia in the semi final but the injuries of Kyle Walker, Kieran Trippier and Jordan Henderson would make them all a doubt for this game. Marcus Rashford and Eric Dier may be included in the starting lineup for this game for The Three Lions.
Belgium – Courtois (GK), Vertonghen, Kompany, Alderweireld, Meunier, Witsel, Fellaini, Chadli, hazard, Lukaku, Bruyne
England – Pickford (GK), Walker, Stones, Maguire, Alexander Arnold, Lingard, Dier, Delph, Rose, Kane, Vardy

Take a look at some statistics:
Both these teams had their dreams in this world cup but neither of these teams did ever dream of playing in the Third Place Playoff game in this world cup. However, this could give England to avenge their group defeat to Belgium and claim the Bronze medals for them. The Three Lions would still be regarded as the one of the best team England had ever produced for a World Cup. Belgium, might have hoped for something else in this world cup but the lack of initiation in the game against France didn’t let them to find the equalizer but it is expected that they would pounce back in this game since they have got their first team right back Thomas Meunier. Thus, our prediction is Belgium is going to win this game.
