Belguim beat England by 1-0 to top group G at the ongoing Russia 2018 world cup.

It was Belguim who threatened first through Tielemans who unleashed a thumping shot from 30 yards out that Pickford did well to save.

The pressure exerted on England nearly made them concede an own goal. Januzaj dinked in a cross. Fellaini headed it down for Batshuayi, who tried to flick the ball into the net from close range.

The ball squirted through Pickford's arms, over the line, but Cahill was there to save his keeper’s error.

 
 
Belguim push and finally got the breakthrough, Januzaj made it 1-0 to Belgium.
 
The former Manchester United man darted into the penalty area, cuts onto his left foot and curled a brilliant shot past the outstretched Pickford.
 
 
England failed to create numerous chances, the clearer chance went to Rashford who's strike was brilliantly saved by Courtois.
 
The game ended as Adnan Januzaj's curler won it for Roberto Martinez's side.
 
Both Belguim and England have already secured their qualification to the next stage of the competition prior to this match.
 
England will play Colombia whiles Belguim take on Japan at the round of 16.
