Belgium and England face off in the third place game today, and both teams have something to prove after losing in their semifinals. England came out of the easier side the bracket, and need to prove that they were just a product of that, that they belong and the top of the world conversation. Belgium need to prove that it wasn’t a fluke and that they can put it all together. Hopefully, this should lead to an entertaining match!
What to watch for: Who has the hangover of losing the semifinal. France took control of the game against Belgium fairly early, while it was England who looked like they were going to the Final until very late. Stereotypically, that would lead you to think that England would come in distracted, but I think that Gareth Southgate can get them in the right mindset.
On the field, its Harry Kane versus Romelu Lukaku to see which young striker can lead their team to some glory. Both can shred some defenses, and I’m hoping for high scores.
