Below will be the information collected of these teams by Singapore Sport Books. 

About Belgium

Thomas Meunier is now back from suspension from the semi-final with France, which will see Moussa Dembele substitute back to the bench. Also, the formation will also be returning to their favourite 3-4-3, although Vincent Kompany might stand a chance to drop out to face any risk about his long-standing fitness issues. 

Romelu Lukaku (striker) has not added any goal into his 4 goals from his first 2 games, but he is obviously a big threat for the England defence to deal with. 

Eden Hazard (winger) the Chelsea playmaker has been central to Belgium’s attacking threat and he scored a total of 2 goals as well.

Kevin de Bruyne (central midfielder) scored against Brazil in the quarter-final and he is the most Premier League assist in the last season. 

About England

Kieran Trippier will not be joining the 3rd place play-off match after he suffered from a groin injury during the quarter-final. Trent Alexander-Arnold could replace the place of Trippier, which Eric Dier, Ruben Loftus-Cheek, Fabian Delph, Danny Rose, and Marcus Rashford could all come into the starting line-up. 

Harry Kane (striker) still being the 1st of the Golden Boot trophy with 6 goals in total. 

Harry Maguire (defender) scored in the quarter-final win against Sweden, and if he plays on this match, he will be a threat to Romelu Lukaku in the other end. 

Statistics

Belgium has their first lost in 25 matches last time out.

England has only 2 shots on target when their last met.

England are the only opponent of Belgium that fail to score against them. 

Harry Kane is leading for the golden boots and he is looking to become the second Englishman to win the award. 

Here is the prediction by Singapore Sport Books. Neither side wanted to be playing this game, yet Belgium should be having enough power to beat England this time and finish the tournament on a high.
