    Third Place Playoff: Belgium v England

    Hopefully a more interesting affair than their group stage match.

    Doesn't even exist in cricket, and nobody cares about the Rugby WC 3rd/4th play-off (unless it's some underdog team who made the semis for the 1st time ever), but isn't 3rd place quite a big deal/achievement in the football WC? Or would English & Belgium supporters not give a ****?

    It's pretty pointless. I'm sure the players would much rather be catching the first plane home after the semis.

    Yeah it'll be an exhibition match. Probably will see the squad rotated a bit, and a good chance for Kane to try and secure the golden boot.

    I'm not enthusiastic about watching at all, but have nothing else to do on Sat afternoon at the moment, so will probably stick it on.

    If there’s no decent tennis on I’ll watch. Otherwise no. Wonder why it’s done at all tbh.
    And once the storm is over you wonít remember how you made it through,how you managed to survive. You wonít even be sure,in fact,whether the storm is really over. But one thing is certain. When you come out of the storm you wonít be the same person who walked in. Haruki Murakami .

    Will be interested to see if Kane plays at all tbh, has looked he's carrying an Injury since the end of the Colombia match imo.

    These games are usually pretty good. Right after getting knocked out everyone is like ‘**** having to play another game’. But by the time it rolls around the atmosphere is more of a bittersweet close to a memorable tournament and a chance to play with the pressure off. It doesn’t mean anything, but it’s a little bit underrated imo.

    Ladies' final will be over by then. Depends how you feel about the doubles.

    It's played so you can show you give a toss about playing for your country. Folks at home appreciate it. Unless they expect to win the Cup every time.

    Don’t mind the doubles actually, can be quite entertaining.

    It is absolutely meaningless.

    It usually results in a decent game of football because the shackles come off and the players are a bit liberated by the game being meaningless, but nobody cares who wins or loses this game. When people look back on this World Cup they'll remember that England were beaten semi finalists, not that they finished 3rd or 4th.
