Belgium V England: Confirmed Lineup Of Both Teams Out

Belgium V England: Confirmed Lineup Of Both Teams Out

Belgium host England in a crunch Nations League tie tonight as the competition for the top spot in Group A2 hots up.

Belgium had narrowly missed out on the Championship playoffs of UEFA Nations League A in the 2018/19 edition, with Switzerland edging them on goal difference in Group 2 on the back of a last-match 5-2 win over the former.

The Red Devils will now hope that history doesn’t repeat itself, with Belgium currently leading Group 2, amassing three wins in four matches so far.

England, though, are the only team to inflict a defeat to Belgium in this iteration of the UEFA Nations League A Group 2 and will hope for a repeat as it would see them topple Belgium and maybe even top the group, depending on how the match between Denmark and Iceland goes.

The current leaders warmed up in a rather cagey manner, narrowly beating Switzerland 2-1 in an international friendly on Thursday.

England, on the other hand, recorded a rather convincing 3-0 win over Ireland, with captain Harry Maguire scoring on his first game in charge of the armband since the incident in Greece.

Belgium XI (3-4-2-1): T. Courtois, T. Alderweireld, J. Denayer, J. Vertonghen, T. Meunier, A. Witsel, Y. Tielemans, T. Hazard, D. Mertens, K. De Bruyne, R. Lukaku

England XI (3-4-2-1): J. Pickford, T. Ming, E. Dier, K. Walker, K. Trippier, D. Rice, J. Henderson, B. Chilwell, J. Grealish, M. Mount, H. Kane
