Belgium achieved their best World Cup campaign as a football nation. Goals from Thomas Meunier and Eden Hazard secured a 2-0 victory for the red devils over England in a third-place playoff at the Russia 2018 World Cup in Saint Petersburg.
Meunier, who missed the semi-final loss to France due to suspension, scored after just four minutes before Hazard grabbed a late second as Belgium eclipsed the side that came fourth at the 1986 edition.
Belgium have now defeated England twice in a fortnight, having waited 82 years to beat them before winning 1-0 in their group stage encounter.
Gareth Southgate’s men were forced to settle for England’s joint best performance at a World Cup abroad, matching that of the 1990 generation.
