Belgium Beats England To Finish Top of Group

A spectacular strike by Adnan Januzaj in the 51st minutes ensured Belgium finished top of Group G with a 1-0 win over England leaving England to face Colombia in the round of 16.

The game was practically to determine who will finish top as both teams have already qualified, but Belgium was good at ensuring they emerged victorious.

Both managers knowing the level of challenges ahead rested players with Gareth Southgate making eight changes from England’s winning team against Panama, while Roberto Martinez made nine changes.

The absence of key players affected England more as they had 11 shots in this match but failed to score. They also had 11 shots in their previous match against Panama but scored six times.

While England will meet Colombia in the round of 16, Belgium will slug it out with Japan in the round of 16 also.
