Are England out of the World Cup?

They won’t be able to finish the tournament as champions, but England can still compete for third place. This means they still have one more game left to play.

We’ll have to see how serious the side will take it. Larger teams often use the third place play-off to field fringe players that haven’t enjoyed a lot of pitch time. In other words, we could witness a similar match to England’s group clash against Belgium.

England have played in the third place play-off once before: after losing to the Germans in the 1990 semi-final, the Three Lions played Italy and lost 2-1.

When will England play in the World Cup third place play-off?

England will face Belgium (who lost their semi-final against France 1-0) in the third place on Saturday 14th July, 3pm BST

The match will be broadcast on ITV.
