Unfortunately for Belgium, they failed to qualify but will give England a tough test this evening with the likes of Eden Hazard, rock solid Vincent Kompany and Moussa Dembele.
England narrowly beat Norway 1-0 last week thanks to Ashley Young's 8th minute strike. Can they get the win they need today against a tough Belgium side to give them morale ahead of the match against France on June the 11th?
England vs Belgium:
England: Hart, Johnson, Cahill, Terry, Cole, Milner, Parker, Gerrard, Oxlade-Chamberlain, Young, Welbeck.
Subs: Green, Jones, Baines, Lescott, Jagielka, Henderson, Downing, Defoe, Rooney, Carroll, Walcott, Butland.
The first team (almost) start with only Frank Lampard (injury), Wayne Rooney and Theo Walcott not starting.
FACT: Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain is the youngest player in the starting line-up for England since Micah Richards in 2006.
