Preview – World Cup: Day 15

England Belgium

Some might argue that England can relax having secured a spot in the next round, but this is their biggest test yet.

England take on Belgium in their last group game, a side currently ranked third in the world and who many predict will win the World Cup. However, in the group table everything is dead level, with England only being on top due to having fewer yellow cards. Hopefully Harry Kane will continue is current goal scoring form, but there also have another problem – being on ITV. Statistically speaking, England perform worse when their major matches are on ITV rather than BBC. There is also the match between Panama and Tunisia on, but we guess the viewing figures will be a tad low.

Before England’s match we will also get an idea of who England’s opponents in the next round will be. It will either be Japan, who take on knocked-out Poland, or either Senegal or Colombia, who face each other on.

Senegal v Colombia is on BBC One at 14.30 (kick-off 15.00).

Japan v Poland is on BBC Two at 14.45 (kick-off 15.00).

England v Belgium is on ITV at 18.15 (kick-off 19.00).

Panama v Tunisia is on ITV4 at 18.15 (kick-off 19.00).
