England Fans Want To Lose Against Belgium In The World Cup

England Fans Want To Lose Against Belgium In The World Cup

And fans aren't stupid, they know that is a possibility - so COME ON BELGIUM.

While there has been some debate in England over the merits of finishing second in the group and avoiding a possible quarter-final against Brazil, a match against Japan in Rostov next Monday would now appear to be a much more attractive option than a game against Colombia.

Jose Pekerman has refused to entertain the prospect of seeing Colombia´s stuttering World Cup campaign end at the first hurdle.

"We have to go out to play well in every game and to try and win every game".

"Why we are starting to plot which would be a better venue for our semi-final is beyond me, really".

"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.

Speaking before the game, manager Southgate said he wanted to "breed a mentality that everybody in our squad wants to constantly win". "We want to win".

"We're going to face tougher challenges in the next few games and at the moment we can't consider ourselves a top team until we start to beat one of those teams", said Southgate.

"But I think it's the same like Belgium they have a great attack and then the defence there might be some weakness".




Southgate held his press conference yesterday afternoon, at the same time that news filtered through from Kazan that holders Germany had been dumped out of the tournament by South Korea.

Argentina only booked their place in the knockouts in the dying embers of their final group game, against Nigeria, while European champions Portugal and 2010 winners Spain were far from convincing in Group A.

"As a striker, he's leading the World Cup Golden Boot, you want to be playing", Wright said.

He added: "You can't take anything for granted".

If the teams are level on bookings as well, they will draw lots to decide who comes top.

"That is what attracts everybody to World Cup".

The pre-tournament favourites will be looking to secure victory over England as they look to finish top of their group for the second time in a row.

Having booked their place in the round of sixteen in style with a record-breaking 6-1 win over Panama, England is likely to make some changes ahead of their game against Belgium.
