The scorers are: Harry Kane with 6 goals (world goalscorer), John Stones (2), Jesse Lingard (1), Harry Maguire (1), Dele Alli (1) and Kieran Trippier (1).

For both teams to win this match would be an incentive in their countries, because both have won a third place in a world cup, on the occasion that has been presented.

On the side of Belgium there was an opportunity in its 13 participations, which occurred in the World Cup in Mexico 86, when it lost against France.

England by its side in its 15 participations (it has gained a world-wide championship in year 66 in the world-wide one realized in its country), in the world-wide one of Italy 90, it had an opportunity when it lost with Germany (Federal Republic) in penitentiaries 4-3 , the match was tied at 1 a side.

Belgium recover Thomas Meunier who could not play the semifinal match against France by penalty, surely it is a motivation to have this player that is essential in his scheme for the Belgian coach the Spanish Roberto Martinez.

Belgium, will try to take advantage of the victory they had against England in the group stage two weeks ago, their first achieved after 82 years.

England on the other hand have recognized that perhaps they hastened to believe that they have passed the final without having played the game against Croatia, now Gareth Southgate will have a real challenge in raising his team morally, he has said that they have a great team for future generations.

So things, the Red Devils against the Three Lions are the protagonists who will be part of the game of honor, to continue enjoying the penultimate match the best possible show, is an excellent game, to win the best and enjoy!
