    As a 15 yr old school kid I went to Belgium for 4 days...it was pretty boring and flat...a bit like Norfolk but without the brother and sister love ins. <whistle>

    Belgium is known for Chocolate, being invaded, being beyond tedious, sprouts, drowning French fries in mayonnaise, strong beer, waffles and producing footballers who like to kid 19 yr old Welsh ball boys :bandit:

    Belgium also has 3 official languages (French, German and Dutch) yet all of their footballers speak clearer English than all of the England team.

    After England's wins over the giants of Tunisia and Panama they are now the favourites to win the tournament as it is now clear that the spine of the team (Danny Mars Bar Rose, Jordan One Touch Henderson and Raheem Goal Magnet Stirling) can carry the rest of the dross in the team.
    It was reported that, after watching Stirlings opening 2 games, the Belgium squad were shaking in their boots...any suggestion that they were laughing is simply bravado.

    Harry one season wonder Kane has already assured himself of the award for goal of the tournament with his audacious back heel to complete his hat trick against Tunisia.

    Belgium will play their usual game of powerful, skillful effective attacking football until It gets to Hazard who will then go through his full Tom Daly repertoire in the hope to impress Real Madrids new manager.

    England will continue to employ their tried and tested best tactic...mindless optimism and hoping to **** that they avoid, Brazil, Belgium, Spain, Germany, Portugal, Argentina, Croatia, Uruguay, France, Russia, Denmark, Switerland, Mexico, Japan or Senegal in the last 16 :bandit:

    Finally, hats off to not 606 mods for the Fellani emoji :afro:

    But the Jack Whilshere one is a little harsh :emoticon-0176-smoke

    Oh and the match is on Friday at midday <whistle>

    A ball boy at 19? Let's be honest, he deserved a kicking. Anyway, Come on England!

    Very possible as they have a defence.

    Belgium will actively try to throw the game while we are naive enough to win it.

    If it’s 0-0 with ten minutes to go we need to throw on Pope outfield purely to break someone’s legs.

    My dad took us to Ostend for a holiday when we were kids. It was basically a **** Margate, and everyone hated us for being English because Tottenham (I think) had recently smashed the place up on their way to Feyenoord. Or it might have been Man Utd on their way to Anderlecht, don't quote me.

    Don’t they speak Flemish?

    Which I’ve just googled and found out it is a form of Dutch.

    I wouldnt be making too many changes here, a few yes but momentum counts for a lot in these tournaments so it's vital we keep it going imo. Run out for Rose, Dier and Rashford for me.

    I think you have to look at players that you may need later in the cup and make sure you keep them ticking over so add Vardy to your list and give him a game as if Kane got injured you'd need Vardy ready to go.

    If Japan top their group it will just be 90 minutes of own goals in our game. The game no one wants to win.

    The fascinating spectacle of two teams trying not to score while simultaneously trying to pick up yellow cards.

    Gonna be a cracker right?
