Belgium manager Roberto Martinez has said the Russia 2018 World Cup is "the best he has been involved in" and that the tournament has given an "incredible image of the Russian people" and the country.

In a freakish game, England made eight changes and Belgium nine as two B-teams contested first place in Group G, knowing that topping the group placed the victor in a far tougher half of the draw.

"I felt the need to sit with him, but he was brilliant, absolutely brilliant", Southgate said of the striker.

"They could reach the final if they had a decent team!"

Lukaku made a fine start to the showpiece tournament in Russian Federation, scoring braces in wins over Panama and Tunisia before being rested for his team's final Group G game against England.

"Southgate hoped that by involving his reserve team last night he would reinforce the harmony of his squad, close any gaps between first XI and the rest".

In Samara, Senegal v Colombia is a winner-takes-all affair but the Africans ($4.75) only need a draw ($3.75) against the South Americans ($2) to keep their run in Russian Federation going and become the continent's only representative in the last 16.

"If England defend well, they will win - because, with the players England have up front, they will score". "If I do have the opportunity to get back I will".

"We've got 20 outfield players who have now played in a World Cup". No, the strategy here was simply to arrive at the knockout stages of the tournament having essentially played two games rather than three and concluding that the benefit of enjoying such a break outweighed the pros and cons of meeting Colombia, Senegal or Japan.

"I've always said we've had a chance but at the moment I can't see past Brazil", he added. "We lost once, and the others were a draw and, going back before that, Sweden have beaten England in big games".

"Don't give Colombia chances because they have players like Juan Cuadrado that can beat players one-on-one".

"Whoever we play we believe we're capable of beating", Southgate said. It didn't happen for them tonight, but we don't suffer for it.
