Romelu Lukaku is now an injury doubt for England game

Martinez happy to be 'boring Belgium'

The short steps before kicking the ball just like a tennis player before they hit the ball - they take short steps before they hit it and it gives you more accuracy.

Topping Group G means playing whoever will have finished second in Group H earlier on Thursday - Colombia, Senegal or Japan. They will face an England side coming off the back of a 6-1 drubbing of Panama, which followed a 2-1 win over Tunisia.

Like Belgium's Martinez, he will balance consistency against giving first-choice legs a rest and giving others game time.

After racking up two wins and a goal difference of plus-six Belgium are virtually assured of advancing but it is not yet guaranteed - and they will be aware that they will need to tighten up at the back to handle the threat of the big guns deeper into the tournament. Belgium's Eden Hazard celebrates scoring their first goal from the penalty spot with team mates.

The result sealed their place in the round of 16 having beaten Tunisia 2-1 in their first match at the World Cup in Russian Federation.

"We still are top of the disciplinary count", Southgate told the BBC.

Border officials to stop referring immigrant families for prosecution
However, there was no guarantee that the Senate could act before lawmakers break for the week-long Fourth of July recess. He bowed to pressure last week and issued an executive order to end the family separations.

The two sides have qualified from Group G with a game to spare, and both Roberto Martinez and Southgate indicated they could rotate heavily in order to protect players carrying injuries or at risk of suspension.

"We want to have a good performance and keep a winning mentality and not drop our level".

"Over the last couple of years we've played all the top teams - we haven't been able to beat any of these teams yet", said Southgate.

However, if Brazil finish top of Group E and Germany come second in Group F, whoever finishes second in England's group would avoid them both and plot a favourable route to the semi-finals.

The Red Devils are thought to still be on the lookout for a number of new signings this summer as Mourinho's men look to try and win the title next term.

The victor may have a tougher route to the semi-finals, such as a potential quarter-final with Germany or Brazil.
