Looking at ELO rankings England (ELO 7) are 2 places ahead of Belgium (ELO 9). But when looking at the FIFA rankings Belgium are third and England are down in 13th. If FIFA rankings are to be believed then Belgium will beat England hands down.
Belgium have been heralded as a rising team for a few years now. They reached the quarter finals of Brazil 2014 and Euro 2016 in France. During qualification they lost just 2 points in ten matches scring 43 times in the process. Manchester United striker Romelu Lukaku netted 11 of those goals, while Chelsea playmaker Eden Hazard provided six goals and five assists. Manchester City midfielder Kevin De Bruyne and Napoli’s Dries Mertens provide more creative flair going forward and this could be the opportunity for Belgium’s golden generation to sparkle.
England also sailed trough the qualification process, coming away with eight wins and two draws. England conceded just 3 goals. England exited Euro 2016 to Iceland and weren’t too hot in Brazil in 2014 meaning they once again have much to prove in Russia this time out. Harry Kane will be relied upon to score the goals and improve England’s performance at their sixth consecutive world cup appearance.
