England XI: Pickford, Alexander-Arnold, Jones, Stones, Cahill, Rose, Dier, Delph, Loftus-Cheek, Rashford, Vardy.
Belgium XI: Courtois, Dendoncker, Boyata, Vermaelen, Chadli, Dembélé, Fellaini, Tielemans, T. Hazard, Januzaj, Batshuayi.
England currently top Group G despite being level on points, goals scored and goal difference, with a better disciplinary record. Both are likely to make changes to their starting lineup. There were doubts over Belgium striker Romelu Lukaku’s availability after he missed the training sessions on Monday and Tuesday. Coach Roberto Martinez will most likely rest Lukaku ahead of the round of 16 matches.
England coach Gareth Southgate was sending mixed messages over whether or not the striker, who has scored five goals so far in Russia, will start.
