The Three Lions lost to Belgium but were already assured of a place in the last 16
England lost their last 2018 World Cup group game to Belgium – but may have been relieved to do so.
For the Three Lions, who were already assured of a last 16 spot, may now just have a slightly more favourable route through the knockout stages.
Who will England play in the last 16?
Having finished second in their group, England have avoided the possibility of a quarter-final with Brazil. They will face Group H winners Colombia, while Belgium will take on the Group H runners-up, Japan.
Why does finishing second provide an ‘easier’ route?
Here is who England will face if they continue to progress.
- Round of 16: Colombia
- Quarter-final: Sweden or Switzerland
- Semi-final: Russia, Croatia or Denmark
- Final: France, Uruguay, Brazil, Mexico, Japan or Belgium
When will England’s last 16 match be?
England will play Colombia on Tuesday, July 3 in Moscow at 7pm.
If England go all the way, when will their fixtures be?
