England Belgium World Cup

England vs Belgium: When is the third-place play-off?

England lost 2-1 to Croatia with the Three Lions beaten courtesy of goals from Ivan Perisic and Mario Mandzukic.

Gareth Southgate’s side went in front when Kieran Trippier fired them ahead early on.

But it was not to be and England will now join Belgium in the third—place play-off.

Roberto Martinez’s men saw their own World Cup dreams ended by France yesterday.

Samuel Umtiti scored the only goal of the game to ensure it now be a France vs Croatia final.

When is the third-place play-off?

England and Belgium will go head to head at 3pm on Saturday, July 14.

Where is the third-place play-off?

The match will take place at the Saint Petersburg Stadium, which has a 65,000 capacity.

Who won the last one?

The last third-place play-off was between Holland and Brazil four years ago.

And the Dutch, who failed to make the World Cup in Russia, ran out 3-0 winners.

In 2010, Germany beat Uruguay 3-2.

Does it matter?

Not really. Neither England or Belgium fans wanted to be playing on Saturday.

But Harry Kane can boost his chances of winning the Golden Boot if he finds the net.
