Everything you need to know about the World Cup’s fair play tiebreaker

29 Juin 2018

NBCSN, the exclusive USA cable TV home of the Premier League, will simulcast in Spanish the FIFA World Cup match between England and Belgium this Thursday, June 28, with live coverage beginning at 1:30 p.m. ET from Kaliningrad Stadium in Kaliningrad.

"I've been watching England away for 20 years and it's the first time I've come away feeling I've been made a fool of". Japan will face Belgium in the next round, while Colombia have set up a mouthwatering clash against Gareth Southgate's England next Tuesday.

Colombia had to win to be sure of their progress, but with Poland beating Japan 1-0 in Volgograd, African representation at the World Cup was ended as Senegal failed to secure the point they needed. "It's a shame that this has worked against us".

So, possibly no Romelu Lukaku of Manchester United up against former Everton teammate John Stones, now with Manchester City.

"The World Cup was not a success for us, but we'll go home with our heads high because we won the last game".

And that would be a shame for the fans. The result confirms Tunisia as Group G's third-place finisher, while Panama ends its World Cup 2018 run as the last-place team in the group.

BBC Sport pundit Phil Neville hit out at the antics and said: "I don't think I'd accept it as a player on the field".

Belgium has reasons other than fatigue to rotate its players.

Referee Milorad Mazic of Serbia shows Mbaye Niang of Senegal the yellow card.

The rewards? There are some, too. One day later, England's Kane scored a hat trick, adding to his two goals in England's opener, and leads the World Cup with five goals. "We wanted to go through to the round of 16 and we have, and that is the only salvation that I get".

In the summit room, Ireland's premier Leo Varadkar also donned the scarf and said he would be cheering on Belgium, though he cautioned that a victory for the lowlands country on Thursday night could be a win for both sides.

Federation Internationale de Football Association has eight possible tiebreakers to sort through who deserves to advance and who does not, or who wins the group and who comes in second.

"I think the players knew all about it", he said.

"The situation forced me to make this decision". This is how you play football.

There's one more reason why the Belgians and English may not be desperate to roll out their big guns in Kaliningrad.
