England not a top-four team despite finishing fourth - Gareth Southgate
15 July 2018, 01:41 | Tracey Rhodes
Harry Kane is still chasing the World Cup 2018 Golden Boot while England could end up with third place
Belgium can take pride in achieving its best-ever finish in a World Cup, but unlike England, youth is not necessarily on this team's side.
Thomas Meunier gave Belgium an early lead with a goal in the fourth minute. "We need to improve, we need to get better, but that will come". We scored the biggest amount of goals in a Belgian team in World Cup history. We saw it in Belgium's game-winner against Brazil, when Lukaku against did tremendous work to create for Kevin De Bruyne on the break.
Toby Alderweireld, one of six Tottenham players on the pitch, then hooked just over after a mishit Tielemans shot dropped to the Belgiumdefender at a corner.
The set-piece success has been celebrated after nine goals were scored in Russian Federation from deadball situations, but it's masked genuine deficiencies from open play.
For Belgium and their "golden generation", numerous key players should return for the 2022 World Cup, even if Vincent Kompany and Jan Vertonghen will probably be gone by then.
It was a concern before the tournament and escalated as England advanced through the rounds but the Three Lions lack serious bite.
Belgium earns its second win over England at this World Cup and its best ever finish at a World Cup.
Two exhausted and disappointed teams playing in heat with the crowd dominated by neutral Russian fans was never going to be a recipe for a thriller but Belgium made a flying start.

Perhaps the players would have preferred to be on holiday after a long season, but it didn't show in what was a blistering start to the game. England, meanwhile, continued to struggle in attack and provide enough clear chances for striker Harry Kane.
"We want to finish on a high and these players deserve to finish on a high", said the Spaniard. Belgium managed to eke out a win thanks to an early surge where they dominated the Englishmen like it was nobody's business. He wouldn't confirm whether he'd give either of his reserve goalkeepers, Jack Butland and Nick Pope, their first game of the tournament in place of Jordan Pickford. For me, Belgium was the most consistently entertaining team at World Cup 2018, and I expect the Belgians will keep playing with that swashbuckling style.
A gut-wrenching 2-1 defeat to Croatia after extra-time at Moscow's Luzhniki Stadium on Wednesday night denied England a shot at a second World Cup triumph, instead setting up a consolation game against familiar foes Belgium.
While the third-place playoff has come in for plenty of criticism, there's not exactly nothing to play for as Harry Kane and Romelu Lukaku will view the game as a personal battle for the Golden Boot.
They received a let-off when Lukaku failed to control a defence-splitting pass from De Bruyne, allowing Pickford to charge off his line to smother.
Great cross for the opener and had looked threatening down the left, but had to go off just before half-time with a muscle injury.
