England vs Belgium betting preview

England have already secured their route through to the knock-out stages of the World Cup in Russia. The Three Lions needed a last minute header from star man Harry Kane in order to secure all three points against Tunisia after the captain had given his side the lead earlier in the game, and the Tottenham forward was among the goals again in his side's second game, bagging a hat-trick in the record-breaking 6-1 win over Panama.

As things stand, the Gareth Southgate's men are currently on the exact same points as their final group opponents Belgium going into the final match. De Rode Duivels have scored eight and conceded twice themselves in winning their first two games. After a comfortable 3-0 win in their opening match against a poor Panama outfit, they ran out 5-2 winners in a thrilling encounter with Panama on Saturday afternoon.

So with six points each and the other two teams in the group yet to get any points on the board, progress has already been confirmed for these two sides. With Group H still wide open and plenty to play for, it's difficult to know who the opponents will be for the next round, although many believe that each side could actually have an easier route to the latter stages if they transpire to finish second in this group, which could make for an intriguing subplot.

With the quality that they have throughout their squad, it's perhaps not a surprise that Belgium are the slight favourites for the win at odds of 17/10 with Boylesports. In Romelu Lukaku and Eden Hazard they have two in-form attacking players that could wreak havoc on this shaky England backline. If you fancy the Three Lions to make it three wins from three though, you can get 15/8 (also with Boylesports) or 19/10 for the draw.

England vs Belgium predictions

We can see goals in this game, even with little riding on the match. After two games, these two sides were the joint-highest scorers in the competition along with hosts Russia and both sides look far stronger going forward than they do at the back. The aforementioned Lukaku and Hazard will be difficult for England to handle, but in Harry Kane, the Three Lions possess the tournament's leading scorer after two matches with five goals. Both teams to score is 17/20 with Ladbrokes.

Harry Kane will be desperate to feature in this match and continue his fine goalscoring form at this World Cup, while boosting his chances of getting his hands on the golden boot come the end of the tournament. The England skipper has five goals so far, including two from the penalty spot in his hat-trick against Panama last time out. He has the ability and confidence to add to his total here with another at 11/10 with BetBright.
