With a break in the Premier League calendar, football fans across the world are being treated to international fixtures this weekend and there are few bigger than England vs Belgium at Wembley on Sunday (kick off 5pm).
Both these sides have a long and glorious history when it comes to producing players of the highest quality and, in Belgium’s case, they are currently the top ranked team in the world.
This UEFA Nations League clash promises to be one to savour with some of the best players on the planet lining up for either side.
Harry Kane, Raheem Sterling, Kevin de Bruyne, Romelu Lukaku; the list goes on and on and it should be a really intriguing encounter.
The Nations League may not be as big as the World Cup or European Championships, but there are definitely ranking points and bragging rights to be had.
It will definitely be the case that both sides will harbour aspirations of winning this competition and it should be a fascinating contest on Sunday evening.
England vs Belgium Predictions
There will be a glittering array of talent on show in this one as the Three Lions take on the Red Devils this weekend.
Belgium are continuing to scale the heights of international football, so much so that they are number one in the world and all they need now is a major tournament win to seal their place in history.
England have one major tournament win to show – the 1966 World Cup on home soil – but there is definite hope that they could be about to end that barren spell.
They have some fantastic players coming through, one of the best strike forces in world football and a young coach who has already led them to a World Cup semi-final.
This game will be a stern test for both sides so we are expecting a very close match. The draw might well be the bet to be on!
