England Fans Are Chanting ‘Are You Watching Germany’

As for De Bruyne, his work seems to be over in the Group stage matches after providing the much required creativity in the middle of the pack.

Pascal was so impressed by the good natured ribbing he received he made a decision to support the Three Lions instead.

Should England and Belgium play to win or lose?

"I believe in every player on this squad so it would be quite stupid for me not to believe in these players for tomorrow", declared Martinez.

"I am a bit ashamed to be honest after what has happened here".

"Anyone who gets the chance to play will do the best they can to make the manager make a hard decision, I'm sure he's made a lot of hard decisions so far".

"Now, we should focus on the last match and win against Panama, and stop this run of 40 years without winning a World Cup match".

"They have found a system that suits this generation".

"At the end they were all passing me tissues and asking if I wanted a little cry".

Both on six points, they have identical goal totals so a draw would mean top spot going to the best-behaved team.

"They are great to watch".

"So I don't think the game will be emotional in that respect".

Southgate also said he was ready to accept any criticism that would come with the defeat, but said he had achieved his "primary objective" by resting his players. They also look ahead to the tantalising weekend of football.

"Of course I'm surprised", he added.

"And the confidence they showed the other night was just phenomenal".

While the player is capable of putting in excellent performances in the three positions, he clearly can't play the holding midfield position as well as Henderson, nor can he play better than Walker in defence, and Pochettino's tactics of employing his versatility are clearly hurting his playing chances at the World Cup.

He turned up to the match against Belgium wearing a Liverpool shirt with his 72-year-old mum Helga to cheer on the Three Lions.

- Who is going through?

Captain Harry Kane is expected to retain his place in the starting XI while Danny Rose, Gary Cahill and Phil Jones will be hoping for their first taste of World Cup action.

"We've been chatting to the England fans all day and none of them have taken the mickey about Germany being knocked out".

"There are players with yellow cards and I don't think it would be professional for us to put those players in a risk to miss the knockout phase".

"But be assured we as United Kingdom police will follow that up and if there is any evidence of English fans contributing to any football disorder we will actively seek banning orders against those individuals".
