Belgium Trashed England 2 nil to Win Bronze

The golden generation of the Black Devil of Belgium has beaten the three lions of England in the third place play-off of the FIFA World Cup, Russia 2018.

The Belgians trashed the English in both teams last game of the superfluous historic world challenge.

However, England dominated the game all through following the period of ball possession and other match stats during the game which was not obvious.

It’s such a pity that possession doesn’t win games.

Meunier scored the first goal on the stroke of the 4th minute, sweeping home a fine cross from Chadli.

Dier almost equalised for England in the second half, no thanks to Vertoghen goal line clearance after Courtois was beaten.

The second goal was executed by the Chelsea playmaker , Hazard, from a counter attack initiated by himself and made possible by the Manchester City midfielder and one of the best player of the competition, Kelvin De Bruyne. The assist was superb. This goal came in in the 82nd minute.

The game is England’s third loss of the World Cup. Losing twice to Belgium without a goal. Firstly, a 1nil loss in the group stage and now a 2nil loss in the third place challenge.

Belgium have the quality to win gold but a bronze medal consolation is not very bad for a country of around just 11million people.
