England vs Belgium Live Stream: Watch the 2018 World Cup online for free
Stick the kettle on and crack open the biscuits − it’s coming home. England are in action at the Kaliningrad Stadium this evening, where they’ll face high-flying Belgium. Our guide reveals everything you need to know to watch the England vs Belgium game on TV and online – and best of all, it’s free! Plus, full England vs Belgium TV channel details, the kick-off time and more.
Both sides may have already booked their places in the Round of 16, but this is still one of the most keenly anticipated clashes of the group stage. There’s also the small matter of first place to sort out.
The Three Lions and the Red Devils have looked impressive so far, but they’ve not really been tested yet. Tunisia and Panama are teams you expect them to beat, and so it proved, with England and Belgium finding the back of the net eight times each.
The young side Gareth Southgate has put together has already proven itself much more watchable than England’s so-called Golden Generation and, for the first time in more than a decade, the fans have had something to cheer about at a World Cup. How long will the party last?
Belgium, meanwhile, arguably have the most talented squad in the entire competition and, despite battering Tunisia and Panama in their first two games, there are still a few doubts over whether or not all of their superstars − many of whom ply their trade in the Premier League − can play together. England should provide their biggest test so far.
Without further ado, here’s how to tune into the game.
