Win over England not priority, says Belgium coach

Harry Kane took his tally to five goals in two games with a hat-trick against Panama

"I think it will be an interesting game, a 50-50 game, and both teams are qualified so it will be a odd game", said Fellaini, who plays in England for Manchester United, having made his name for another Premier League club Everton.

Southgate also insisted that he is determined to win tomorrow night's match against Belgium, even though it has been claimed England might have a better route to the semi-finals by finishing as group runners-up.

England manager Gareth Southgate pointed to Germany's shock World Cup elimination as a warning that every nation is vulnerable at Russian Federation 2018.

Pressed on whether Kane would start against Belgium, Southgate told Talksport: "As a manager you have to think of the whole squad and then your second thought is for individuals and their own situations, and that is a really complex balance in any business where you are managing people". "If I was going to speak about every player, I think every one of them deserves to play in the World Cup".

He said: "He has scored a lot of goals and been very important for Tottenham and the English national team as well".

We will therefore rely on Lukaku, signed for £75 million last summer, to build on his 27-goal debut season and fire us into title contention.

However, Lukaku is one goal behind England's Harry Kane in this World Cup, as the strikers compete for the Golden Boot.

"We have studied Germany and their style has had a big bearing on what we are doing, but it shows that in sport, anyone is vulnerable on a given day". Marcus Rashford is expected to take Raheem Sterling's place and Dele Alli is available again after training for the past two days.

It nearly seems to have been forgotten that before England should start thinking about the quarter-finals they will have a tie in either Moscow or Rostov against one of the teams from Group H. They will have a clearer idea by the time they kick off against Belgium but, as Southgate spoke, it could be one of Japan, Senegal or Colombia.

"We want to win the game, that would mean we would top the group, and we play who we play in the next round", Southgate added. We need to breed that mentality. "It just wouldn't be authentic for what we've been trying to build for the last two years".
