    SATURDAY 14TH JUNE

    BELGIUM VS ENGLAND


    Match kicks off at 15:00 (BST) on ITV 1.
    Coverage starts at 14:30 (BST). Presented by Mark Pougatch, pundits and commentators to be announced.

    I mean, does it matter to you if we finish 3rd or 4th?

    Great achievement either way for England.

    Time to start thinking about City (and our club sides for non-blues) unless you're French or Croatian. Walker, Stones, Sterling, Kompany and De Bruyne may all be rested. Delph may start.

    I expect 2 heavily rotated sides.

    Kane and Lukaku may start, to try and fight it out for the golden boot, Kane pretty much has it wrapped up though.

    I wonder if two teams have ever played each other twice in the same tournament and fielded reserve sides both times?

    can't they just air a replay of the group game and send our lads home?

    funny both managers tried to throw that game to get an easier route and they both end up with the shittiest game

    Hope all ours are rested from both sides. Sort of wondering though if Vinny might want a swan song.

    Yer mean they've still got Glenda offering his 'There's only umpteen Tootingham Hotspur players and none of them can put a foot wrong' schtick

    Had to laugh when he said Trippier's ball into the box was "cross of the tournament". It was alright but come on....

    Trippier's crossing is a myth. Keep going on about his great crossing, but very rarely finds a man.
    Usually over hit and too high. His corners are another thing, though.
