Who wins Group G if England and Belgium draw?

  • England captain Harry Kane leading the way

England's excellent first half against Panama on Sunday afternoon saw them score four goals in a World Cup match for the time since the 1966 final against West Germany. The last Englishman to achieve this feat was the Legendary Gary Lineker in the year 1986.

John Stones headed in two goals and Jesse Lingard curled in another to ensure England goes into its Group G finale against Belgium level on points and with the same goal difference. The goal was an example of Kane's precision and clinical acumen.

All the England players on this occasion got carried away and forgot about this rule, so judging by FIFA's official rulebook, Panama should have been allowed to kick off and have all of their player's bearing down on Pickford's goal which would surely have lead to a goal for the minnows. "They are architecturally attractive", Southgate said.

"I think [Ruben] Loftus-Cheek and [Marcus] Rashford really change the game late on and I think really driving forward and driving forward with a ton of pace is very important for England", Dunfield said. "England is totally spectacular, a lovely team", said coach Hernan Dario Gomez, who went into the English changing room at halftime to congratulate Southgate. 'But as a striker you go through spells when you're scoring, sometimes they don't fall for you.

Well, no more for England but Panama's Felipe Baloy, 37, fancied a bit of history for himself, scoring the nation's first ever goal at a World Cup finals.

After Belgium's penultimate group match against Tunisia, they face England on June 28 at the Kaliningrad Stadium, in what could be a group-winning match.

The academy product had fans anxious for a moment when he took an elbow to the face early on in the match but he made it clear that it didn't affect him at all. "Before the tournament we had a good performance against Costa Rica with a different XI to those who played against Nigeria a few days earlier".

"We all know too well that more than half of Switzerland's population is German".

After some slightly, shall we say, "dubious" tactics from the Panama defence, the referee once again pointed to the spot for an England penalty. "We keep going. #WorldCup #ThreeLions" he tweeted.

If England draw against Belgium in their group-stage finale and manage not to book up more yellow cards then their opponents, then Southgate's men will finish top.
