I could 6 players who can (or have primarily) operate as defenders in that starting XI.

7?

Which one did I miss? I counted Rose, Dier, Cahill, Jones, Alexander-Arnold, Delph. Never seen Lingard, Rashford, Vardy or RLC play in defence. And definitely not Pickford.

Oh right I was referring to a different lineup posted on Twitter when writing that reply. My bad.

Lots of places seem to show Januzaj wing back but the official Belgium account puts T Hazard there

I've got Belgium down to... ahem... 'win' this 2-1, but I don't really mind whether we finish 1st or 2nd. Either way, tonight should be fun. :)

We should both be put on the hard side of the draw for deliberately trying to lose with our team choices. Should have kept the momentum going :herman:

Belgium's team is an even bigger joke than ours. At least, despite all the changes, we only really look much weaker upfront without Kane.

I don't feel like we're trying to lose, I just think Southgate knows the result is fine either way so keeping the best 11 fit is arguably the best thing to do, whether we finish first or second.

Obviously the Belgium game was the most anticipated since the groups were announced but this will be poor i think, half arsed line ups looks like it'll just be a kick about.

Chris Waddle quoted as saying "I don't believe Michy Batshuayi is going to miss a chance in front of goal." 

Did he not watch the last game Michy played? :lol:

Giggs on RLC "on his day he's a world beater". Overhyped much?!

Giggs is a truly, truly awful pundit.

Dembele first name on the team-sheet if he was English? Get a grip Neville.

I don't think Belgium's 2nd XI is that impressive at all. If Rashford and Vardy are at it (or allowed) they could get a handful each versus City legend Boyata, crock Vermaelen, Dendoncker and the greatest wing-back of all time, err...Chadli.

Sure it's a weird thing to get annoyed about but I can't stand that William Hill advert. The repeated loop of the generic football clips is proper ****....Yep, that's how laid back I am about the match.

Idk, if Belgium wanted to throw the game why didn't they start Mignolet?

There's no way Belgium aren't trying to win, they could have scored there again.

Well, this is starting to look a more normal England performance.
