This Sunday’s match between England and Belgium will see rivalries renewed which date back to the summer of 2018.
There were football fans packed in every seat in the stadium during the World Cup in Russia. Harry Kane won the Golden Boot. There were six goals in a World Cup final for the first time in 52 years and England played Belgium… twice.
Having played each other in the group stage, Belgium coming out on top, the two teams would meet again in the only game that no team looks forward to playing at a World Cup – the 3rd place pay-off. Having just missed out on the final, this is what happened:
England vs. Belgium (5pm GMT kick-off)
With Belgium likely to field a very strong side, we still see them having a slight edge against Gareth Southgate’s men and could easily be backed at 9/2 with a -1 goal handicap. We do like the 1-0 win for the away side, however, which at 8/1 is backable. If you like England, then they’re likely to concede while doing so and are a good price at 10/1 to win 2-1.

Other Nations League Fixtures – Sunday 11th October
Republic of Ireland vs. Wales (2pm GMT kick-off)
Our tip: Under 2.5 goals is a must here, even at 8/15. It’s 8/11 that both teams don’t score, and we like that even more.
Bosnia-Herzegovina vs. Netherlands (5pm GMT kick-off)
Our tip: Neither of these sides are prolific at present, so 14/5 for under 1.5 goals looks good.
Croatia vs. Sweden (5pm GMT kick-off)
Our tip: Over 2.5 goals looks good and is odds against at 23/20, so worth taking.
Poland vs. Italy (7.45pm GMT kick-off)
Our tip: We like Andrea Belotti to score at any time and at 9/5, see no reason not to invest!
Iceland vs. Denmark (7.45pm GMT kick-off)
Our tip: Denmark are in good form and Martin Braithwaite (erstwhile of Middlesbrough and Barcelona) looks good for a brace at 11/1.
France vs. Portugal (7.45pm GMT kick-off)
Our tip: Cristiano Ronaldo will be desperate to add more goals to his record, closing in on the international record, and is 17/10 in most places to find the back of the net.
Russia vs. Turkey (7.45pm GMT kick-off)
Our tip: Could be a brutal one, so take the 18/5 that there’s a sending off in the game.
