What had been perhaps the most anticipated match of the 2018 FIFA World Cup group stage has lost some of its significance, with both England and Belgium already clinching their place in the knockout round, but at least top spot in Group G remains up for grabs, as the FIFA website reports, in the game that will live stream from Kaliningrad Stadium in Kaliningrad, Russia, on Thursday.
But how all-out will the teams be willing to play, just to secure the bragging rights for winning the group? According to Sky Sports, Belgium may sit the country’s two top stars, Manchester United’s Romelu Lukaku and Chelsea’s Eden Hazard, after both endured minor injuries in Belgium’s 5-2 drubbing of Tunisia.
Bu at the same time, England Manager Gareth Southgate has stated his commitment to winning Group G, according to The Guardian, and despite giving serious consideration to resting sensational 24-year-old striker Harry Kane, who leads the World Cup with five goals already, Kane is expected to see his name penciled into the starting 11 anyway.

Kickoff for the critical match between the European sides is scheduled for 9 p.m. Moscow Standard Time at Kaliningrad Stadium in Kaliningrad, Russia, on Thursday, June 28.
In the United Kingdom, that start time will be 7 p.m. British Summer Time, while fans in the United States can log in to the England vs. Belgium live stream at 2 p.m. Eastern Daylight Time, or 11 a.m. Pacific. Fans in India can watch the game live stream at 11:30 p.m. India Standard Time on Friday.
Belgium Manager Roberto Martinez has different ideas, however.
“It will be major (team) changes against England,” the former Wigan and Everton boss told Fox Sports. “The reality is that we are qualified and in a tournament like the World Cup, you’re only as good as the 23 players. There will be opportunities for other players.”
But after England raked Panama by a 6-1 score, as the Inquisitr reported, the Three Lions players say they plan to follow Southgate’s lead and maintain their momentum.
“We don’t want to take our foot off the gas with the performances we are putting in right now,” midfielder Ruben Loftus-Cheek told Fox Sports.
