    It's a bizarre situation in that both teams are resting their best players because they don't want to win but the players playing want to prove they should play going forward, so they'll give it their all.

    Why? Winning the group is pointless its better just be second and have better odds to make top 4.

    The controversial Loftus-Cheek selection has been well justified I'd say. What a unit.

    The fact he's playing might be a sign that Alli is fit for the knockouts.

    If they are tied, why not do penalties.

    Because you cant know the 2 teams that are going to end up tied will be playing each other when the group ends.

    You cant really have 2 different sets of rules depending on if the teams are playing each other or not.

    Going for the win here is crazy. Fair play my ass, this is the WC, they're hard enough to win as it is, might as well give yourself the best chances to win.

    Not a fan of Dier today.

    Rose has been great though.

    I would look brilliant in this Belgian team right now. Running around kicking English people sounds like a laugh.

    Both teams are trying to win, with players wanting to prove they should be in the next game. The yellows are more of a coincidence.

    Most evenly matched game of the tournament thus far? I mean England might be the "underdogs" but by no means it's an upset if England win.

    Do red cards superseed yellow cards then? That could open up some interesting scenarios if this game is still tied heading in the 90th minute.
